    Go figure

      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)

        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 Smile

        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!

            It literally weighs one ounce!

              I'd vote for the tights, the half zip, and something else. Although, I don't know if you'd need tights with all the TM work.

               

              LRB...nice. I'd be worried about black being hot though...but I am sick of getting everything in standard blue.

                ...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:

                  10k: 52:01 (4/28/12)  

                  HM: 1:50:09 (10/27/12)

                  Marathon: 4:19:11 (10/2/2011) 


                  delicate taperer

                    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.

                    proud taperer

                      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...

                        Brrrrrr


                        Uffda

                          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:

                          - Andrew


                          Mmmmm...beer

                            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!).

                               the Hoka Stinson

                              Saw those at a race expo and wanted so much to try them, but Hoka doesn't make large sizes.

                               

                              Discrimination!

                               

                              I have an infinite supply of t-shirts, don't know that I'll ever buy "running gear" or a "singlet".

                              Just B.S.


                                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?Smile

                                 

                                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.
