Whoops...

Just this month (and we're only seven days in) I've spent over $200 on running gear. Yeah, I know. Crap. Oh well, the money's made to be spent, right?! And thanks to Bushy-poo, I don't feel quite as bad b/c that economic stimulus check just hit my bank account. And to be clear, this is the only thing I can thank Bush for during his fabulous presidency (insert dripping sarcasm).

The thing is, I REALLY needed new running shoes and I was started thinking my foot probs could have something to do with the fact that all three pairs of my running shoes are several months old. And I REALLY needed those polarized sunglasses I just bought since the sun is coming and trying to run in my huge $15 fashion sunglasses wasn't really cutting it during those 2-3 hr runs.

There's something about spending money on something that's healthy for me that allows me to put aside all guilt for spending any amount on good gear that will keep me comfortable and happy. And hey, I figure it's better than a drug addiction so I'm doing good. ;)

I hear you...I sometimes feel bad when I first buy running / work-out clothes, but then I realize that I'm actually working out and doing something good for me, and I get over it.

Ha! I would say this is the one thing I feel no guilt about - I figure it is all stuff that is going towards my overall well-being, and at least I am not spending it on wild nights at the bar.

I would spend mine on something ridiculous, like a $600 bag. You are doing something that's great for you so definitely don't feel bad!
