Lisa: All Geared Up

I have been shopping around for the last few weeks, trying to find affordable running gear. Here are the basic outfits I came up with. The sports bras and tops are from Target, as are two of the pairs of pants. The other two pairs are from ShopKo. No cotton! Apparently, cotton is evil (at least as far as running in winter is concerned). Also, I refuse to wear those hideous running tights, unless someone gives me a really good reason why I have to.

I also wanted to make sure I had several options for different weather. I already had the green shorts...

and I had the windbreaker, too.

I found some good running shoes at the Nike outlet. The heels have some kind of spacey looking spring-esque cylinders, but the shoes feel pretty comfy. I'll give them a whirl. I got three different kinds of socks at Target, since I had no idea what I would like.

I already had this fleecy jacket from Old Navy that I think will work for staying warm, but I splurged on new gloves and a headband made from some special hi-tech material. They are just for runners, and they better be frickin' awesome.

So, I think I am all set! I hope I will be prepared for weather contingencies, etc. I'm sure as it gets warmer I'll have to get more shorts. Anyway, pre-training starts on Tuesday. Here's our schedule (a Word document) if anyone is interested.

I've decided to commit to the marathon. I've been planning to train, but last night I got more psyched the more I thought about it. I'm going to Target on my lunch break to get necessary clothing, but I'm still hoping that Santa might provide me with some clothes.

WOOT WOOT! I am hoping Santa brings me one of those little mileage tracker dealies, like a Forerunner or something.
