Hmm. If only there was some way you could show off both your post-UNMC Winter Decathlon physique AND your pride in working at one of the country’s top academic health science centers.
Wait, how about team-UNMC workout/bike jerseys and cycling shorts?
No, something that cool would never happen.
And these are some cool threads (or, you know, whatever it is they use to make lightweight, wicking, QUICKDRY fabric).
The red, black and white are striking, like a real sports jersey. If UNMC had a cycling team – and why doesn’t UNMC have a cycling team? – this is what it would wear.
Imagine standing out in the peloton at the next road race. Have your team show up en masse, in uniform, at the next OwL Ride or Bike for Sight. (Well, next year’s Bike for Sight — this year’s is in just a few weeks.)
See yourself showing up at the next 5K, half-marathon or fun-dash … in this!
Of course, as it says right there in the product description: “Jerseys do not fit like T-shirts.”
This would be especially true in my case.
But then, the sight of yourself (OK, myself) in one would serve as an incentive for working out.
Peter Pellerito, fitness specialist at the Center for Healthy Living, said the UNMC uniforms are not a money-making proposition. These clothes aren’t to make a profit or raise funds.
It’s that, when our employees show up at bike rides, runs and other athletic events around town, we want them to say, “Here comes UNMC.”
And here we come.
