Here's a super short post, due to my lack of running attire. I am linking up with Mel and Laura to talk about my running gear. I
stalk love reading their blogs everyday! And Laura and I share the same name! [and not just first names...maiden names, too]!
So here are my basics:
For any workout, this is what I wear: sports bra from Target, any tank top, one of Joey's t-shirts, capris [I won't buy grey ever again...sweaty sweat butt look doesn't look good on anyone!], socks and shoes. Some electronic "attire" includes using RunKeeper for outside runs, and Electric Miles to keep track of overall miles. I like that ap because it updates my Daily Mile account. I have tried Nike + Running numerous times and it never logs correctly. ever. Do I need the foot sensor? I didn't think I needed it...but maybe it's required? Oh well. Because someday I'm going to get one of these:
...and I'll probably buy one used, hopefully at a better price! Or something similar to this...not necessarily this one. I do want Garmin though...they have great reviews!
And I really would like one of these -
- but I cannot bring myself to spend $60 on it. Yes, I'll spend $100 on a watch or a good pair of running shoes, but I'm just not in the spirit of spending that much on a shirt or pair of pants for working out in. I don't think it'd make it any easier or prettier. HA. Maybe if I get into running more consistently...I may be more inclined to invest in good attire - but for now, I'm sticking to my clearance rack rags and Joey's t-shirts!
And something that bother's me immensely while running:
....SAND. Everywhere. [Monterey Bay is all built on one big sand dune]. When you're outside running with wind...be prepared to eat sand, and blink sand. Then be ready to feel sand all over your face because it's stuck to your sweaty skin. ew. It was in my ears, and even took a few shampoos to get it all off of my scalp. Note taken mother nature - don't run in area's with sand next to you.
