    1 pair of shoes $120-$150
    1 UA Shirt $50 billion dollars (on sale)
    1 UA Shorts $30 billion dollars (on sale)
    ...
    Or something like that. :lol:

    Or when your podiatrist tells you you should have three pairs of shoes in rotation... At $220 or thereabouts a pair (stupid wide feet), plus fancy socks (refer previous discussion), and that's the very basics. I've just spent a small fortune on an event I may not even run (stupid cold!).

    @elise4270 The latest issue of Trail Runner magazine that just came out had 'awards' for some odd categories. I don't recall the category, but there was an award to some runners who lost time because they came upon some bears 'engaged in romantic activities' (or something like that... I don't remember how it was exactly phrased) and had to wait.

    Bare bear love.... Such a sweet, er sweat filled nervous moment.❤️❤️❤️ 👁️👁️😲 ❤️❤️

    How long they have to wait? 😆😍

    It doesn't say how long, just that they lost time.

    Oh thank god! Seriously I thought I was the only woman in the world who hates those no-show socks with a passion. I can just about get on with the low cut ones on shorter runs.

    Fellow low cut sock hater here also!

    Hi everyone,

    Oh man. And here I was worried about getting the ticker graph on. Thanks

    I think I need more carbs for my brain.
    Does it look normal now?
    Still can't get the graphic on just the link Can't win here

    Did you get it figured out? I don't mess with the ticker any more. You figure your monthly walking goal? 70km maybe?

    I'll join the "low cut sock hater therapy group" - I just don't get it!

    Well, I was ready with all kinds of comments and responses which I'm sure were positively life changing and full of wit and wisdom - and poof - one stroke of the wrong button and they're gone. :s


    It was a beautiful 56 degrees here this morning - talk about perfect running weather! This weekend? Predicting 100 heat index. Blech.

    Now to go find my info so I can post. Grrrr.

    Hate those low cut sock too!

    I've gone to the quarter socks. I was lucky enough to go through a spell the low cut ones worked. For some reason now they dont. Except i picked up some cheap Fila athletic socks at tj maxx a few years back. If i can find them again, I'll grab more. Fine sock for the price.

    That is why I get my socks in crew! :) My son like the low cut socks, but he is not a runner, so I guess he can get away with it.
