Well....I'm kind of here to argue. What they say is correct....you only really NEED a good pair of running shoes....but what about wants. LOL As a girl runner, we all know that when we look the part, we totally run better! Come on female readers....I know you agree with me.
Having said that, I went to Lulu today to spend a Christmas gift certificate. I, of course, walked away spending more than the gift certificate and that got me to thinking....I wonder how much running gear I actually have. The type A that I am, I decided to organize and count it. LOL. Here is the evidence!
8 long sleeve shirts
6 race shirts - this surprised me
6 tech shirts
2 running skirts
12 tanks (pink outnumbers the other colors)
4 pairs compression socks
2 compression calf sleeves
3 sports bras
and apparently 2 doggies
Of course running shoes need to be included:
vibrams 5 fingers - short runs, concentrate on form
New Balance minimalist - runs under 5k
North Face - for longer runs
New Balance 1400's
I challenge each of you to go through your gear. Do you keep your race shirts??? Do you wear them again??
