under my own steam

a blog about moving through the world

gear

For running:

The great thing about moving through the world by running is that you don’t need much gear!  I have to have the following:  shorts, a sports bra, good running socks, Brooks Glycerin shoes, a t-shirt.  Sometimes I use these: an mp-3 player and a watch.  It doesn’t take forever to change into or out of my running stuff.

For biking:  I have to have my bicycle – I have to have my bike. I have to have my bicycle, I have to have my bike.  Sorry for the song detour. 

She’s a Trek.  Sometimes she’s a he – I think.  I have a bi-bike and sometimes I have a tri-bike.  Tee hee.  I love my bike.

 

Of course, with my bike I have my helmet and I use gloves and I have these shoes that for a long time didn’t have clips in them and finally I got clips put in them (what a difference clips make – who knew?  I guess all y’all out there knew).  My gear is pretty ratty but it gets the job done right now.  It’s taken me all over the country really so I’m not complaining.
