I would like to begin by stating the obvious given the above picture; my brother is incredibly strange. However, that’s not the only point I wanted to make. As stereotypically expected of females, I love getting new clothes. Nowadays I find myself getting more excited for new running clothes than I do normal day-to-day clothes. I bought a new running outfit with my Academy gift card from Nathan, and it made me excited to run simply because I wanted to be able to wear my new things. The simplest things can provide motivation for me. It’s important to have things to get excited about. It makes the journey that much more fun and enjoyable.
