His first comment...<br><br>

So what's with Team Javelin?<br><br>
Btw, I know that feeling with the short top... while it might be OK for girls, for guys it's weird.

Stitch...mom questioned the doctor at birth...she thought I was a dwarf b/c I have SHORT legs and a LOOOONG torso.<br><br>
Do you know how hard it is to find pants. I'm not proportioned right for petites...and short pants are too long on me...gotta get stuff hemmed!

Yowza.....<br><br>
And I think my "must wear mens shoes" is strange.<br>
Not so much, I guess.<br><br>
I suppose that once you find brands/styles that work for you, you stick with them.

For now, I'm cool....just need to do some shopping.

No, it's up 400.<br><br>
They made me cry because the sales clerk was a complete asshole. It is now known as "The Wetsuit Incident."

I posted pics on another thread. I think I'm gonna email a pic to the Jav people and ask if it's supposed to look like that.<br><br>
i tend to bloat in longer races...I'll look pregnant crossing the line and get chaffed from race belt.<br><br>
I think I'll opt for a man's top.

I saw the pics--good idea to ask them what they think--I was also thinking you should maybe tri a mens top (are they generally longer?)....and I remember you bloated a lot on your IM---that was crazy! --and your doggies are cute....<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

I hate short tops too. I am thin, but I don't like to show my twin mom belly! It is not something anyone wants to look at (the skin stretched and never went back to normal). That's on my TO DO list to get fixed someday. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"> I might even do it right after my HIM (if I have any money left! LOL). I'll have to talk to DH about that.<br><br>
I have to get everything hemmed as well because I'm 5'3.5", which is RIGHT in between petites and regular. The petites are all too short (barely), but the regular length pants are SUPER long! I'm lazy too, so most of my pants just drag on the ground and are all frayed! LOL<br><br>
Tops aren't a problem, but I can imagine with such a long torso it being a major problem.

I'm 5'6". Petites are already SUPPOSED to be too short on me!<br><br>
I got an email back from Jav. I sent them pics and they are looking into it for me <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
