I went on my first outdoor run in months this morning; we’ve had sporadic spring weather so far, and while I’ve been telling myself and everyone else that I’m just “very into yoga” lately, the reality is that I’m also “too lazy to run.” I’m slightly motivated by the pending doom that is bikini season (and the fact that 90 degrees in New York sounds a lot more comfortable without a layer of blubber to insulate), but that will only last so long. What I really need is some new merch to make me stick with a spring running routine. If I had a financial adviser, I’m sure they’d tell me this is a bad fiscal strategy, and if I had a personal trainer, they might also tell me that I’m putting the cart before the horse. But screw the experts, I know: Sometimes all baby needs to get her workouts back on track is a really pretty tank top, and the guilt trip of having spend $60 on clothing that can only be worn at the gym. Are you with me?
Either way, here are a few things I’d like to buy in honor of my renewed running routine:
