This week’s topic is: Are you a race gear hoarder or a minimalist?
Hmmm…my hubby would probably say that I am a hoarder but when I read other blogs & FB posts, I realize that many of you (and I don’t need to mention names) have many more running clothes than I do.
So yes, I have a lot of running outfits. Almost all have been bought on sale or at Target, Marshalls or with my Skirt Sports discount.
I run 4 times a week. I don’t do laundry often and I have this thing about being matchy matchy!!
My essentials are skirts (or tights & capris with skirts), tops (tech tanks, short & long sleeved), socks (compression & not), jackets for cooler weather and baseball caps & winter hats.
Since I have run almost 200 races, you can imagine how many race shirts I have. I’ve made some into a blanket and given many many away but I still have quite a few (only tech ones are worn now.)
I also have many pairs of running shoes. Of course, I’ve thrown some away but I have ones that I am attached to even though I don’t race in them. Right now I race in Nike Zoom Vomeros and I have 4 pairs of those.
As far as other running gear, I am more a minimalist.
I have my original Garmin 205 watch. It works fine and I only wear it for races.
I don’t own any sticks or foam rollers or head lamps or any other gadgets. I don’t even own a treadmill or belong to a gym.
So I’m a clothes hoarder but minimalist with the other running stuff.
Happy Running! What about you? Do you hoard running gear?
