I was thinking of reality television today. I’m going to work on my very own running reality tv. But sometimes you can have just too much reality.
It got me thinking about what has up until now been alluded to. The winter running pants disaster. Not too many people know this story. And what better place to ruin my reputation than right here on the internet?
You see, I decided that I needed to buy winter running pants. I had been running in a lovely pair of spandex pants that seemed to do the trick. But I thought since the Gazelle had the proper running gear that maybe I should invest in a nice pair of winter pants.
So off I went to the Runners Den. Where I learned a hard lesson. Spandex comes in different types. I had walked in with the idea in mind that I wanted a pair of those nice tighter fitting pants.
So I told the helpful person that I wanted spandex tights. I should have known I was in trouble when he took out a few pairs. And explained how one pair was good for up to -20 and that the next pair was good for up to -50.
Things took a definite turn for the worse when he handed me three pairs of pants and told me to go and try them on. And didn’t ask my size.
I thought running was about setting personal goals and acheiving them. Maybe being fashionable while running is important too.
Stay tuned for part two tomorrow ….
