Since doing the C25k I have been using the one pair of (pristine white) running socks, washing, drying and getting them ready for the next outing. Yesterday I put them in the wash with the dark clothing and now they are a muddy grey colour,
I also cycle, and used to ride a motorbike. More experienced than me said you only become a ‘real’ cyclist/motorbike rider after you’ve fallen off. (I fell off both)
So, do you become a ‘real’ runner when you are in tatty running gear and grey socks that used to be white?
