oh my. I honestly don't know if this is my responsibility or if I sent it to Mike. I'm sorry if this was my fault... will look into this!

Does your hoodie have a drawstring on the hood? I'm either blind as a bat, or mine doesn't seem to have one...

yes, it has a drawstring.


Mine does not have a draw string. They must have used two different styles. I got grey, it has no cuffs on the arms or waistband, and no string on the hood. I prefer cuffs and string, but that's OK, at least I have an RM hoodie. :D

mine has cuffs, etc - it's the men's cut (i had to get men's to get the orange one), maybe that's the difference?

Mine has no cuffs or drawstring either (women's grey). I was a bit surprised, but as you say, it's an RM hoodie.

some of the hoodies are different because they had a hard time getting the colours, sizes, and cuts that we wanted. hopefully they are all sufficient! :)

It took forever to get stuff this time. I just got mine on Tuesday. Mind you, you'd think it would get to Montreal before Halifax.

So, I obviously missed this gear order. Any chances there are extras hanging around? If so, I'll likely be a taker. Most of my stuff needs to be replaced.

I've lost all my Orange RM socks to the boy...and he'll soon start blowing holes through them...so...

I'm going to throw out a request, since it looks like others are doing the same 8)

Duncan has taken to wearing my new RM singlet and clearly the high fives at ORW from other maniacs has made him realize he wants his own. If anyone ordered a Women's Small, and it didn't fit - we'll buy it off you!

2011
Hypohalf - Check
Sask Half Marathon - PB 2:23:09
Bridge City Boogie 5k - 33:19 and a broken leg...
Mogathon 5k (in wheelchair) - Had a Blast!
Queen City Half Marathon
Nike Womens Half Marathon - in memory of my Grandma, MIL Natalie, my cousin Gary, many others, and most recently my Uncle Allan and my Great Uncle Paul.
Wishes
Edmonton Derby Half - not going to happen due to break
To sign up for a few smaller ones along the way - maybe some late fall small ones

I'd like to say I'm buff, but that would not be true. So, I'll have to be content with "I now own a buff."

Thanks.

Throwing a request out there - any left over buffs or socks? I have a "team shirt" for the Army Run, but still want some Orange somewhere

I just saw this. No need to apologize, Marg. My comment was not meant as a criticism. I am genuinely happy to have a buff. Sorry if it came across the wrong way.
