Race Apparel

I read an interesting article the other day about race apparel and Ironman apparel in particular. The subject got me to thinking while I was on my run this morning.

Why is Ironman and Ironman 70.3 gear so amateur looking compared to that of the Boston Marathon?
Boston apparel has an air of sophistication and style, whereas the Ironman stuff looks like a Disney designer on crack. I hold the Boston and Ironman logos in high regard as to qualify, train and compete in those events is an honor and a great achievement.

It then got me to thinking that while an Ironman tattoo is a popular way to express your accomplishment, I have not seen any Boston Marathon tattoos...?
