1500 views yesterday, thanks y’all! Probably won’t post for a couple days now, going to spend the day with the gf and her family tomorrow then off to Texas Wednesday morning. Here’s the next list!
The WORST pieces of running gear from 2011
While technically not new to 2011, they seemed to get more popular than ever this year. So popular that I’ve seen people wearing them in the store, in restaurants, and in class. STOP IT.
Side Note- Barefoot running can be good for you. So instead of paying 120 bucks, why don’t you just find a soccer field and do a few miles barefoot to supplement your running?
4.) RUNNING IN CARGO SHORTS
You’re probably laughing and thinking “ha this must be a joke, surely nobody runs in cargo shorts!!?”. Oh my brothers, I wish this was true. I have seen over 100 people running in cargo shorts, vibrams, and a polo this year. Let’s put an end to this meow.
While incredibly useful for replacing electrolytes, this shit is horrible if you don’t mix it with enough liquid. Or if you’re lazy like us and just pour it in your mouth and chase with a little bit of water.
2.) Mom-Spandex Shorts
This one’s a bit chauvinistic, but I am a young guy (well kinda young still), so don’t blame me blame the hormones. This is aimed at girls 18-30. If you’re fit and skinny, you should wear 2.5-6″ at the most spandex for shorts. Those 6+” pairs that go up to your bellybutton and halfway down your thigh make you look like a mom. Sorry. (Anybody older than that just shouldn’t wear spandex shorts, go for the pants, moms)
1.) SKETCHERS RUNNING SHOES
Unless you’re Meb. K., don’t do it. Absolutely nothing Sketchers makes is cool, unless you’re 6 and you like velcro shoes.
