    Running with Jewelry

    Post by FinishingKick on Fri Jan 30, 2009 10:06 am

    Do they let you run with jewelry where you live? Here they won't even let you check in with watch on.

    I saw a picture of a sprinter on Dyestat with 3-inch hoop earrings and I was thinking about how that would feel really weird.

    Watches are fine in XC, but that's it as far as jewlry goes. Very stupid rule, I don't understand it.

    No you can't wear jewelry in my area. In swimming the rule is even more gay. You can wear a hair tie in your hair under your cap but if you take it off and put it on your rist you are DQed. Gay.

    yeah same with track and xc. You can even wear hair ties on your wrists, or bobby pins. It has to be a headband..

    One time I forgot to take out my (just stud earings) and we almost got DQed =/ luckily we didn't even do that well so the judges said it didn't really matter. haha

    You can wear religous jewelry (like a cross) but you have to tape it down to your chest. Its something weird like that.

    That's so stupid. Could you wear something on your head if it was religious? What about any kind of jewelry, you could always say you're a consumerist.

    where i live, you can only wear a watch. you cant even have ponytail holders on your wrist. but that doesnt even make any sense b/c in the olympics you can wear as much jewlery as you want.

    Everything but big hoop earrings are acceptable. We've had a guy come in with a massive dyed mohawk, 2 lip rings, and a bunch of spike earings, and it was perfectly acceptable albeit a little weird.
    Where's the logic in not letting people have jewlery

    Once at the private school meet I raced against a bunch of goths from Shambala (the same HS that Ellen Page went to) who wore chains, those spiky bracelets, and one had a fake moustache. I lapped them all in the 1500m.
