Running can be a really cheap sport… but it can also be a really expensive sport! I think I’ve found a nice balance – I use about three pairs of shoes per year, which I usually try and buy on sale, and I have enough race shirts to carry me through 2038 (although I do have to buy shorts now and again). I sign up for one or two “expensive” races per year, along with a smattering of smaller, cheaper races. But what if I wasn’t being budget conscious…
These are available in Black/Black/Pewter (above) and Olive/Black/Moss (below).
Okay, these are the shoes that I actually run in. They are my one splurge every year – I buy them on sale/clearance but they’re still pretty pricey. What can I say?
I was a little torn here – do I go with the 910XT (above), which has a barometric altimeter… or do I go with the 620 (below), which has the high-sensitivity GPS receiver and HotFix™ technology – decisions, decisions…
Obviously, these are a must! You can’t go wrong with the Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 sunglasses!
Of course, we don’t run for the shoes, clothes and accessories – we run for the races!! With no budget worries, I’m off to Tanzania (and Kenya). And obviously a trip to China too – apparently the Great Wall Marathon has 5,164 steps – piece of cake!
If money wasn’t an issue, what is one running item that you would want?
What is a race that you would want to do?
