Among a few other items, singlets by New Balance and Pearl Izumi, and I finally got the Lunarglide 4 Shield.
Wha cha got?
"Training is not always fun, but it should always be rewarding."
I can't get the perspective on that Pearl singlet, but I think it looks pretty sweet.
I'm too lazy for the pic posting feature on this site. I got the LunaRacer 3 and the Hoka Stinson though...how's that for a dichotomy? I also picked up a pair of Nike Thermal tights on post-season clearance (although they're actually from the winter 2013 line and the owner was kind enough to sell them since my size in the old ones was out).
PRs: Marathon (2:49xx; '13) Half (1:25xx; '12) 10k (40:26; '11) 5mi (29:23; '13) 5k (17:33; '13)
I race in SparkleSkirts
The best thing about being in my first year of running is each season has been my first time running that season and I have needed new gear. Just started buying some things to get ready for later spring/early summer. I will get pics later
PRs: 5K- 28:16 (5/5/13) 10K- 1:00:13 (10/27/13) 4M- 41:43 (9/7/13) 15K- 1:34:25 (8/17/13) 10M- 1:56:30 (4/6/14) HM- 2:20:16 (4/13/14)
I started a blog about running :) Check it out if you care to
I'm too lazy to post pictures as well, but my Spring running gear will include 3 items from this page, after April 15th!
PRs: Boston Marathon, 3:27, April 15th 2013
Cornwall Half-Marathon, 1:35, April 27th 2013
4 years racing, 14 marathons, 14 BQs
It literally weighs one ounce!
...but I am sick of getting everything in standard blue.
Dig it. My summer gear is usually white with black accents, but I felt it was time to switch up a bit for the same reason.
I don't think it will be a problem since we race before high sun around here, but I will be monitoring it nevertheless.
LRB...nice. I'd be worried about black being hot though...but I am sick of getting everything in standard blue.
I always used to worry about that, but I have a dark navy shirt that I got from a race and it's one of my favorite things to wear - I don't find that I notice a temperature difference between it and my lighter colored shirts.
I have a brand new pair of Adrenaline 13s that I bought the week before I broke my ankle, so those are waiting for me. Excited to see if I like this latest iteration of them.
As a reward to myself when I can run again, I think I will have to go and get something new. I haven't bought a new pair of shorts in about 2 years, and haven't bought a new short sleeved shirt in nearly 3 (though, I did get a free shirt from Brooks this winter when I ordered mittens/capri tights from their website). I haven't even gotten a free short sleeved race shirt since June of 2011. My stuff is getting kind of gross. I think I can spring for something.
My wildly inconsistent PRs:
5k: 24:36 (10/20/12)
10k: 52:01 (4/28/12)
HM: 1:50:09 (10/27/12)
Marathon: 4:19:11 (10/2/2011)
Between the holidays and being on IR now, I have not bought any new gear in months. I will live vicariously through you all. And DW...she's running again and has been buying things.
I bought this shirt.
Sorry, it is huge so I deleted it.
Only thing new I've gotten in the past few weeks is a boring long-sleeve tech-T and a beer glass from my last race.
I did recently notice that my one white sleeveless running top has somehow become a mysteriously shade of pink. It must have got washed with something red. I don't wear pink, so I guess I need to go shopping for a replacement...
I picked up a pair of Nike Free 4.0 V2 about a month ago:
I just picked up a pair of Brooks PureConnect. They are light and definitely have a firm ride:
Haven't picked up any new clothes yet, need some medium singlets tho, still using my larges from last summer. Did get a pair of Fastwitchs recently, and will be ordering up some Mirages on clearance, and a pair of Type A5s (not on clearance, but I want 'em bad!).
2014 Goals | sub-19 5k done! | sub-40 10k | sub-1:25 HM | BQ done! | sub-3 M
the Hoka Stinson
Saw those at a race expo and wanted so much to try them, but Hoka doesn't make large sizes.
I have an infinite supply of t-shirts, don't know that I'll ever buy "running gear" or a "singlet".
Bought myself one of these sweet tri suits Monday. The blue one.
Technically it's for triathlons but I will run 1/3 of the race so this counts as running gear right?
Perhaps this summer I will post a photo of me wearing this racing a tri!
Also bought 5 swimsuits last week. Seems when you are swimming 5-6 hours/week chlorine rot sets in
quickly and they don't last long.
