    Recycle, Recycle Recycle! Just Not the Running Stuff


    I cut my lawn for the first time yesterday.   Now is the time for cleaning and getting rid of stuff that is no longer useful.

    I suppose I should have done inside stuff while the weather was cold.   Running a couple days outside in the cold, seemed a much better choice.  But now, I’m paying for it.  Instead of being outside in the bright sunshine, I’ll be inside trying to do my spring cleaning.

    There is one particular area which I am not going near.  I decided last year that I have way too much running stuff.  Ok, actually you can never have enough running stuff.  But you don’t know you have too much running stuff if you have it all over the house.

    So I cleaned out a drawer in a chest of drawers for my running stuff.  All the long sleeved shirts could be stored there when the weather was warm.  And vice versa in the winter. 

    Since I routinely misplace my running gloves and balaclava, I decided that I could put them here too.

    In theory it was a great plan.  Then I tried to put all my running stuff there.  I needed another drawer.  And then another.  Soon it had reached three drawers.  And that didn’t include the assorted stuff like water bottles and my spi belt.

    It ballooned to four pretty quickly.

    I’m planning  on getting rid of useless stuff that I don’t use anymore.  Who needs clean socks and unmentionables when you have running stuff?  And I figure if I accessorieze properly, no one will notice that I wear the same three shirts every week?

    A runner for almost two years, Terry recently had the mildly traumatic experience of trying to find a flattering pair of running pants (“Isn’t running about pushing personal boundaries and just getting out there and moving? Except when you don’t look in the least bit like Paula Radcliffe.”). But although she may have been a bit embarrassed by “helpful handsome guy” at the store, she keeps a great perspective through her running experiences. Pushing through a number of injuries early in her running career, she got right back to training for her next race. “The feeling of elation when I crossed the finish line is unimaginable,” says Terry. Sounds like she’s hooked for good!
