My closet has been unbearable for a little while and after my morning run I decided to clean it out. It really was a mess. This is what I pulled out of the closet. I’m certainly not bragging. In fact, I am a little embarrassed.
I always think about using old running shoes to mow the lawn. Well, I think I have enough. I was able to discard (Salvation Army) 12 pairs of shoes. That still leaves quite a few pairs in reserve.
Shoes from my first marathon
You can see that a lot of the shoes are identical. In 2009, I bought 4 of the exact same pair of shoes while training for a fall ironman and a spring marathon. I used a magic marker and wrote on the heels of each shoe so that I could match them up. Most of the shoes are shot. They have a ton of miles on them and they are falling apart.
MG2 = Mardi gras 2. This pair got me to Boston.
MG2 still has a fair amount of mileage left. The are back in rotation!
What kind of gear do you tend to accumulate?
