Running Gear

Is it just me or is running gear super expensive now?

I mean I have always known running shoes were, and I think they are totally worth the price tag! But shorts, t-shirts, tanks, socks, watches, the list goes on and on.

When I was in junior high/high school I would run in a t-shirt and cotton shorts. I didn't even realize the options and I guess I didn't really care. But, now that I'm older and running seems to be more challenging I am finding that I do want moisture wicking technology, I want shorts that I won't chafe my legs in and I want socks that help me from being too badly blistered.
But wow, the price tag with some of it is crazy!

So, what did I do to stock up n the necessities without breaking the bank? I shopped around, looked online, found coupon codes and sale ads.

I ended up heading to Target (my all time favorite store) they had a cartwheel coupon a few months back for 25% off C9 shorts, I got 2 pairs for around $25! Score!

Oh how I love cartwheel!
My husband also got me a pair of Adidas running shoes on a pretty good sale on Amazon, I don't think they are the best shoe for me but they are alright for now, low mileage, road running.

What are your splurge items for running?
How do you save money on running gear?

Let me know if you have any tips for buying quality running gear at a discounted price!
