This is what I want for my next birthday, Christmas, Valentine's Day, La Cocotte's birthday, Mother's Day etc. etc. The gift of, absolu-and-I-really-mean-zip-zilch-the-big-doughnut-hole-tely nothing. I am drowning in stuff. Clothing, used running shoes, books, CDs, cassette tapes(!), prizes from road races, crap upon crap upon junk upon stuff and it feels so oppressive. The feeling of getting rid of stuff, of simplifying life, of actually making it possible to clean our apartment is SO empowering! I seriously think I have enough clothing for the rest of my life now. I don't want to buy, receive or acquire in any other fashion anything else ever. As an aside, I am also getting rid of ALL of my maternity clothing and nursing bras because I figure if I do, I will definitely get pregnant this month.
So... in the spirit of lightening, making space, getting rid of the piles, I am thinning my running wardrobe which, after being sponsored for 4 years, is considerable. I am getting rid of quality stuff, half tights, micro fibre t-shirts, wind jacket, stuff that is used but still very serviceable. I could just put it into the Salvation Army bin, which I will do with my other stuff, but I like the thought of this running stuff to which I have grown attached, being used by another passionate runner. So, if you are female and in need of some pretty decent running gear, I will be happy to pay the cost of mailing it to you - there are about 15 pieces of clothing. I am 5'8" and weigh 125-130 pounds so if you are anywhere around that zone, this stuff will fit you. It is mostly tops with some tights.
Leave me a comment or shoot me an e-mail piccolapinecone-at-gmail-dot-com and I will happily send it off to you. As I said, I really like the thought of another runner using it.
