I've been shopping around for a while now and I've discovered something....Running clothes are EXPENSIVE! Maybe I just have expensive taste, but wow! First trying to find something that could even fit, and then in my price range? Not so much. Thankfully, I found some hints from a few blogs.
wrote about her find at Old Navy. She too had been thinking about a running skirt and found one there to try. While I didn't get the skirt (it was just a bit too small) I did find some compression shorts. On Clearance. $7.49! So AWESOME! I really should have bought two pair, but I wasn't sure if I would like them. *sigh* Oh well, now I know A: Old Navy caries moisture wicking clothes and B: Buy it when it's cheap!
The last thing I bought was a shirt. I have been having the hardest time find any sweat wicking shirts for any women in my local~non-running~stores, let alone plus size. Finally, my sister-in-law pointed out that mens shirts work just as well for women like us and Walmart had plenty. Once again, on clearance ($6.67)! Not the cutest, but it gets the job done and I don't have to stuff myself into a too-small shirt. I really just look like an over-stuffed sausage when I do that and no-one needs to see that.
All of this, coupled with my new SPIbelt that I won (more on that later) and I am pretty happy with my new look. Best of all, it cost me less than $25! Someday I'll have the money for some super cute running skirts and shirts with all the cute sayings, but for now, this gets the job done.
