I always thought running was a very minimalist sport. All you need to do is put on your shoes and out the door you go right? In its simplest form yes! However, as I continue to enjoy this ride my desire to learn more and test new boundaries has driven an insatiable appetite for more gear.
First of course you gotta have shoes. I have currently amassed some 25 pairs. Eighteen of them I don't use anymore and I am donating to charity (please let me know if you are aware of one that will come pick up all these old soles, or a drop off in Westchester). I have another 7 pairs of both trail and road shoes in my current rotation.
Next up in GOT GEAR? Vol. II, I will cover the other stuff, including hydration, safety, nutrition, travel/storage and probably numerous miscellaneous toys.
Remember to support a charity and keep enjoying the ride. Peace E
