I see so many blogs where runners put all kinds of thought into the perfect race day outfit. For me, that end of it is simple–I want practical–lots of pockets for gels, and cool. Plus, I run for Oiselle, so that makes it even easier. Boston morning will see me sporting my Oiselle tank an shorts. Done!
The harder part for me is picking the perfect throw-away outfit. I have so much to choose from in my house! I’ve been racing for a long time, and even though I’ve weeded out literally hundreds of old race tees, I’ve kept a few gems behind for throwaway purposes. Not to mention that I am married to a pack rat who has his own special collection of dated workout wear (yes, I raid his drawers to find this stuff–he never misses it).
That being established, you’ll see why I have a hard time choosing the right ugly clothes to stay warm in leading up to start time. Here are some of my choices this race (and I know you’re jealous):
I think you’ll agree, my choices are difficult! I’ll be honest, though–I don’t care what my throwaways look like, as long as it is still cold enough to need them race morning. If it’s not, then it definitely will NOT be a good day out on the course.
Do you see a favorite here? What do you usually use for throwaway clothing?
