runner if your running shoes cost more

You might be a runner if

“You might be a runner if:  Your sneakers cost more than your dress shoes”

This one so applies to me, but it didn’t occur to me until the other day when I was having a conversation about how I refuse to spend more than $15 on footwear. I had to add two buts: Work shoes (always Dickies, $65+), and running shoes (at least $130).

In fact, until I took up running, my work shoes were the most expensive item in my wardrobe. I do tend to hit Goodwill for shorts and pants, but I’ve spend a fair amount of money on hats and jackets.

I think I do a good job of watching my budget, but I can see how spending on races and running gear can run away from you. (Pun intended).

What about you? Are your running shoes the most expensive piece of footwear you own? And What about your spending on running gear in general? Please leave a comment
