…into A Million Bucks!
I’m not a high maintenance girl. All my heels fit neatly in a shoe organizer. My clothes only take up one walk-in closet, a dresser, and an armoire in our condo. I feel pretty wearing jeans and an old running tee to work. Like I said, I’m not high maintenance… until I switch into athlete-mode.
I never realized how expensive running is until two days ago. Sure shoes and races cost a little money but I never accounted for running outfits.

While wearing five-hundred twenty-six dollars worth of running attire and listening to my $100 iPod, I had the best run in months on Memorial Day. There’s nothing quite like putting on all of your favorite things at once and getting a training PR in 89ºF weather.
Most would blame it on feeling great in light-weight, breathable, moisture-wicking, state of the art technology, blah, blah, blah, fancy clothing.
I blame my 5K PR on the Ninety-Nine Cent song that motivated me and made me feel like A Million Bucks!
