I thought I had pretty much everything I needed for my running hobby. I have a Garmin watch that I love. I have great Oiselle gear for all of the crazy Chicago weather. I also have beautiful and comfortable Brooks running shoes. However, now that I think about it, there are a few more things I would like to have/get.
• A treadmill – I do have a gym membership but sometimes it is even too cold to go to the gym. Remember the polar vortex we had last month? Yesterday was another cold day and I did not want to go outside. But I did go to the gym and ran 4 miles.
• A Peloton bike – I have heard so many great things about it. I know Kim and Deborah have one and I want one too. Yeah, I would set that up next to the treadmill.
• Race entries – I know many races are cheaper than others (I have paid about $40 for an ultramarathon) and then there are those that are just ridiculously expensive! I have a few more half marathons to sign up for to finish my Race in the 50 states +1 goal (need GA, HI, ID, KS, NM, ND, SD, and WY). This year I signed up for 3 half marathons through BibRave and one that I signed up for as soon as registration was up on the website. I paid $42 (not including fees). Still a great price!
• To be a Brooks Run Happy Ambassador – I know I will never be picked as one but it is an ambassadorship that I really, really want. I love their shoes and wear them on every run. Currently I have 3 pairs in rotation and yesterday ordered the Glycerin 17. Those are the shoes Desi Linden runs in so if they are good enough for her, then they are also good enough for me.
