"You're Not a RUNNER...You wouldn't Understand!"

That's what I said to my husband after he asked me "Why are you wearing that?"...referring to my cute, green bondi band, though I don't think he would describe it as cute!  I tried to explain it to him but if you aren't a runner you don't get how great it is!  They say running is a cheap sport...Ummmm I would beg to differ!  Running can be cheap but if you want to do it long-term and do it well and comfortable...well then it is going to cost you.  There are so many great things out there for runners.  A few are obvious...Garmin, iPod, shoes, socks, running tights, running jacket, hat, etc....
  • What is something different, something out of the ordinary that you don't hear about much that you have been surprised by that has helped your running or at least made is nicer, easier?
These long weekends are nice, but make me delay my running until mid-day.  I wanted to go out this morning but we made plans and so I got ready knowing I really needed to get a run in later.  We ended up not going out due to nap time which was fine but I hate getting ready and then going for a run...seems a little backwards, but that is my life right now with our kids at their ages.  I was happy to get a run in and not miss it.  Weather was nice, but cold.  I can't wait until it warms up because it makes RUNNING OUTSIDE so NICE!  I know many of you in other parts of the country have it bad right now with all the snow.  I can't believe how many of you have been running in the snow!  You are awesome...that is something I have not had to do.  Looks fun, but COLD!

Here is one of the reasons I RUN...My youngest son, Cole!  He found his brothers goggles and likes to wear them around the house.  I think he looks so cute and funny in them...I keep taking picutres!

Ha ha! I think my husband has given up trying to understand why I have the running stuff I do!

Great running stats! You are well on your way to 1000++ miles.

What a cute goggle-clad boy! It's so fun when they do stuff like that. My five year old sometimes walks around wearing these huge toy glasses. I think he thinks he looks cool. :)

Love the goggles! He is a cutie. I also love the Bondi Band. I keep saying I am going to get one. I used to tell people that running was a cheap sport. Maybe not so much although in comparison to skiing - big equipment costs and lift tickets etc. it still is. What has surprised me? Well I just bought my first pair of compression shorts and liked them so much I immediately ordered some tights!

Aaawww! He's adorable!

Julie said...

Great pictues!! You have one cute little guy there:) Good job on your running! Keep it up:)


Cute Bondi Band!

My girls always walk around with their swim goggles on too!

Love the pics! What a cutie!
I second the motion on compression tights. CW-X are the bomb especially if you have hamstring/IT issues.

Sherri said...

I love your hair band! I need one!
I agree running is not cheap...but worth it!
Love the goggles on the wee one!

Safety pins! I like having a safety pin attached to my waistband when I run - for a key, my gloves or anything small I don't want to carry in my hands.

Cute pics of your little boy!

Mel -Tall Mom on the Run said...

Hehehe.. Like when you and I were at dinner trying to talk about running and all the girls were looking at us like we were talking in swahili.. LOVE it!

Oh Cole, we need to get the boys togehter ASAP.

Alicia said...

I just read through some of your older posts. You are such a doll! Love the positive attitude. It's right up my alley!

Cute Bondi Band. I've got a couple coming in the mail (hopefully soon!) Can't wait to try them for myself!

Cole looks sooo cute!

Very cute bondiband.
I totally agree. Almost none of my friends they obviously think I am nuts.

I love the bondiband! Very cute! The first time I wore mine my husband actually called it CUTE! Gasp! Can you believe it!?

One thing I love to run with in the winter is a ear warmer. I just have a cheap one from Old Navy and it is like a head band that covers my ears.

Your little goggle boy is adorable!! I just want to squeeze him!

Melissa said...

I am soooo ready to get my Bondi Bands in the mail!!!!!! Maybe they will be there today.

My hubby has given up trying to understand. He just accepts it and moves on.

Molly said...

I just ordered a bunch of Bondi Bands, can't wait to wear them!

I have so many kinds of lip balm for my runs, can't get enough of it!

ShutUpandRun said...

Love the bondi band; I'll have to try one of those. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Jo Lynn said...

He LOVES the goggles? I am always in a hurry to get mine off my face. Ugh.

Me too - I run to stay sane. Literally, I would go crazy without it. Literally! ;)

Candice @ I Have Run said...

LOVE the goggles. And your Bondi band pictures are making it harder and harder to resist spending money on a few for myself!
