Socks…they are a very personal choice. You’ve seen the hightop socks that are scrunched down, the cute little old men who wear black socks with everything, the socks with toes that I wore in high school and the socks with colorful characters that my dear mum still wears.
Personally, I prefer my low running socks..they peak out just enough to proudly display I’m wearing socks, but they don’t really add to the outfit. But here’s the important part… I MUST WEAR SOCKS.
Ick, I got to the gym last night to find I was sockless and it really threw me for a loop. I know people who run without socks, I am not one of those people. Ick, ew and really no thanks. But somedays you have to just take what life gives you, so I laced up hit the treadmill and then ran home to rip off those shoes and wash away the icky feeling.
The upside…I ran like hell to get that feeling over with as quickly as possible…hmm ideas for the race are percolating…no.
So what about you? Big socks, little socks, red socks, blue socks, no socks?
