So as promised, here are some apparel suggestions if you are going to begin a running routine:
1. Wear a stopwatch. (The one I have is a Timex ironman. For children. Yes, I stole it from my son.) When you first start running, you ABSOLUTELY will look at your watch after approximately 2 minutes and will be in disbelief that it doesn't say 20 minutes already. You will doubt your watch's accuracy. Unfortunately it's correct. So keep running.
4. Running shirts. Over my full-length jog bra, I usually wear some type of tight moisture-wicking long-sleeved top. I have a North Face one (again, bought from Marshalls) and I recently got a great one from Lands End.
5. Accessories. First of all, let me state for the record that this was the temperature today:
6. Socks. No picture because my faves were in the wash. I swear by Smartwool running socks. Good socks DO make a difference. I promise.
Ok, you're fully dressed and ready to go. iPod on, stopwatch set...NOW GO! Get out there and run...
You'll be done!
