Break Fast

I finally bought some clothes. At the beginning of the year I declared "In 2013 I'm not buying books or clothing."

The catalyst for this purchase was a gift certificate that accompanied a race packet from this past weekend. The certificate was disguised in an envelope which said that there were one of four prizes inside, but you had to make a purchase to open it. I headed to Dave's Running in Perrysburg to see what I had won and get some running shorts.

These shorts are nice. I had been running in normal athletic shorts, nothing special about them but also nothing wrong with them. I didn't feel like they added time or increased the effort, but they were nothing anything like these.

This new pair is light and smooth. They make the old pair feel like I was running in a heavy cotton dress more suited for raising barns and churning butter than logging miles.

But I bought something.
