When I first started training in January 2016, I didn’t think I’d be doing a running camp in the middle of the country.
I’d been running for about a year and a half, but my fitness level was still in its infancy.
I had no idea how to run fast, I was still figuring out how to get my body and mind into the right shape, and I wasn’t sure how to fit a gear budget into my schedule.
I was worried that if I wanted to get more out of running than just running, I’d have to buy new running gear.
I was also worried that I’d need to pay more for it.
I didn: I paid $15,000 for my first pair of running shoes, which cost about $500 each, and the most expensive part of my running gear was $250 of waterproof sleeping bags.
I spent almost all of that on running shoes.
But as the months went by, I found myself running a bit more often and I found I could make a lot more of a difference by wearing waterproof gear.
As I got to know more runners and experienced a few new runs, I started to see the benefits of watertight running gear: I started running more often, my heart rate increased, my performance improved, and my overall fitness improved.
I also found I was less likely to make mistakes when running in the rain.
I noticed I’d get lost in my surroundings more often.
I also noticed my breathing became more relaxed.
My wife and I started doing a few sessions a week at our local park, and over the next couple of months, we were able to run more often together and enjoy running in our own unique way.
We noticed that, while running on the trail is a very good exercise for the body, the body is much more efficient at running in a tight space.
And it is much easier to breathe during a run when the air is in your lungs.
The key to the watertight-run camp I ran in January, and to all my running camps that are in the works: There’s no need to buy a new pair of shoes or waterproof footwear.
There’s a wide range of running gear to choose from.
The key is to choose a running pack that fits your body, is made of high-quality materials, and is built to last.
In the next article, I’ll share my story about what watertight gear can do for you, what it can’t do for me, and how you can use your running to improve your physical and mental health.
