There is something about buying new running clothes that terrifies me. I run six days a week and wear the same (washed every night) thing each time. Umbro soccer shorts I’ve had since high school and an Old Navy tank top I bought when I brought Mini-Li home from the hospital as a newborn. What is my deal? Shoes, now that is a different story. I know better and had the fine folks at Trak Shak hook me up with the perfect pair of shoes. No back, leg, knee, ankle, etc. injuries from the wrong pair of runners on these feet! But, running clothes intimidate me. Wicking this – cotton that – no cotton here - NASA approved space age there. And, they can be wicked expensive, especially if what you buy turns out to be uncomfortable. Like the shorts I bought to celebrate my first 5K. Admittedly, I made a mistake never wearing them before the race...paid for that for days!! So, I am accepting volunteers as a shopping companion to grab some cooler weather gear. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
