Here's a peak inside my "minimalist" fitness closet:
|My running gear!|
Minimalist actually means "no money." So I pick things up one at a time as I can afford it; everything shown is well used and well loved.
- The white pair of Nike's are so old, I can't remember what kind they are. They are semi-retired and mostly used for hiking and trail running now.
- The pink pair are my current road shoes. They're the Saucony Guide 6 and I heart them a lot.
- I use Champion; I have no idea why. But I love them and they're cheap and I wouldn't run in anything else.
- I have two pairs of Adidas. They're exactly the same except for the color of the stripes down the sides. I've had the older (pink striped) pair for a couple of years. I wear them almost every day and they're still like new.
- I have a pair of black Under Armours and a pair of really bright Nike shorts. I wear them when it's hot out and I'm feeling especially body confident.
- Both the shirts I run in most often are Champion. To be honest, I bought them because I tan faster than anyone on Earth and these were cut low enough (but with enough support) that I wouldn't have a ridiculous tan line across the top of my chest come summer.
- I have two, one is Champion, one is Nike. They're both pink and support the ladies quite nicely.
- I run in a University of Montana track jacket when it's cold. Go Griz!
- My MP3 player because you've gotta have tunes.
- The beanie was for registering for Run for the Luck of It in 2011
- I pull my fingerless gloves over my hands during winter running.
- Here is a small sampling of race/running related t-shirts (and the medal from my first half marathon). The grey shirt is one of my favorites. It's a list of running trails in Missoula with "I Run Missoula" written at the bottom.
And there you have it!
