Okay, is it just me?

I would like to know if there are any others like me out there who are just a little bit superstitious about their running gear?

I've only changed my outfit once for running ( yes it is washed in between runs), and when I did, I had the most awful session, probably the only time I really wanted to stop.

So yes I do like to wear the same gear, I think it has become part of my prep regime, I get it on and I know I'm ready to go.

Please tell me I'm not the only one . . . . . . PLEEEEEEASE!

I will admit that I'm not usually wearing the same pants . . . . that would be weird ;)

Didn't anybody ever tell you that it is unlucky to be superstitious!

I’ve tried to wear other stuff brighter and more “runner” but just prefer my old black capris and black vest top .. I’m going to stand out at the Race for life 🤣🤣

My stuff borders on camouflage, no chance I'm going to stand out Bridget :D

I will only stand out because everyone else will be in pink 😬 I’m going to have to buy something pink 😝

Yes!!!!

Socks! I have about 20 pairs... but I only ever wear one pair (and they are always unpaired and in the airing cupboard when I want them).

I do have about 20 pairs of white socks, so can't guarantee I'm wearing the same ones.
