I never buy running gear at full price. My method is checking the racks at Marshalls and buying whatever fits. Most of my buys are a season or two out of style and some of the worst colors ever invented. I really don’t care, the stuff is cheap!
The other day I started investigating compression socks after seeing so many people run with them. I took a leap and paid full price, a shock $60 a pair.
I think I have turned a corner.
I bought a new running jacket at full price. The old one was brought in 1998. What a difference in tech and fabrics. Why have I waited so long?
Today I ran the most miles in a very long time and I can say I will be buying more of these socks. I was susceptible but I am now a believer.
