Yesterday morning I got up around 5, and went to pack my gym bag. Somehow my big collection of running socks has dwindled to a pathetic level. Sure, there were some in the wash, but all I could find was one lonely, mismatched sock. Through attrition, wear and tear, and running misadventure (like the thing a few months back where I bled like a stuck pig through one running shoe), I've somehow reduced the sock population.
(Hey, I know that bleeding shoe thing is gross, but it's not like I hold a gun to your head and make you read this blog.)
Anyhow, on my way home from work I stopped at a running store I'd never been to before, in an effort to repopulate the socks. Total score! Not only did the place carry my favorite brand, Balega, but they were on sale, and they even had a buy 3 get 1 free sale!
Now a fresh new pair is waiting for me already packed in the gym bag, down in my car, calling for me to get on my way so I can run at the gym before work.
