I actually do not have too much old stuff because I have invested in good, quality gear over the years, and clothes in, clothes out is my motto…. but here are a few things that have been around for a while.
My oldest, most dearest running friend is my Nike+ watch. My husband bought this for me as a Mother’s Day present many years ago and even if it has a lot fewer bells and whistles than the more recent models, it works just fine for me. Mileage, pace… just what I need. Its only downfall is that I can not share my runs on Instagram and for the life of me I can not figure out why. Maybe because its old ?
My iPod ! I started running with music, and ran with music for years. I got this great iPod for my birthday a couple years ago. It worked great until it went through the spin cycle. #runnerproblems
So I dug out my daughter’s iPod, the small one that clips. I LOVE it and used it for a couple years. For some reason I have misplaced it and haven’t found it for about a week. I had it at the gym about a week ago, and my plank picture proves it but since…. NO IDEA what I did with it.
And I even have a small pouch where I put all my cords, watch, Fitbit AND iPod. Or so I thought. So, while it was old, I might need something new.
(Note : following the comment posted by Marcia, I dug out my iPod that went through the wash… and it works. Thank you Marcia !)
My pink underarmor top. I have worn it for years, I think it was one of my first real running purchases. It doesn’t have thumbholes, and it is a bit thin, but still one of my favorites, even despite the slight odor that won’t seem to wash out.
And I just had to mention one of my newest purchases… I bought a Odlo jacket that I find extremely clever. There is a slit for your watch, so you don’t have to wear the watch on top of the jacket. Isn’t that neat ?
What is your favorite oldie ?
