Have you hugged your uniform coordinator today?


Yikes, I've been buried for the last couple of day with no time for blogging!

It's that time of year again and this is my second season of helping pick a new vendor, coordinating fit kits, sending out emails to our team, following up on color issues, downloading order forms and going over and over and over the final custom order to be placed with Craft.
Phew... my head is swimming. My biggest fear is I've forgotten someones tri shorts or cycling bibs or wind jacket and come May when the stuff gets delivered and distributed, and somethin' is missing.... Trigirlpink gets the email. Then of course being super type A, I feel horrible and want to crawl under a rock that I somehow dropped the ball and forgot some one's gear. Sh*t happens. No matter how careful one can be. It's either our error or the vendor's.
There are some perks to this labor intensive job, you get to pick things on a mostly male dominated team for the few chickas that usually get stuck with androgynous Pat tri-wear. Ick. So you take charge and order up cute things the girls need like apres-race skinny strap camisoles like this I found and had custom printed. The girls (all 8 of us,ha!) loved them!

Why does it say "Triathlete"? Isn't that implied? As opposed to....?

Ridiculous kit.

Wow...you guys have a lot of uniform pieces! My friend Leslie does ours and I have now seen how much work it is. We have some really tiny girls on the team and the XS stuff is too big on them so it gets taken to the seamstress. Even more work, but I'm glad they don't have to race with one hand holding up their bottoms!
Great job!

Don't mind Gary, he's just jealous that his uniform isn't exhibiting an ass-kicking good karma vortex design. Or maybe he wants my built in shelf bra camisole? ;-)
