The first thing I bought to motivate myself to run were a pair of addisas running shorts. I didn't even think I needed a top so just used any radom shirt.
I bought it and didn't use it until many many months later when I finally got the Couch to 5K program and dragged myself out there on July 10,2011.
Wearing the right gear for running has made it a good experience. And it really does make a difference the kind of material used. It's the kind of material that absorbs sweat away from your body.
It has also been a source of motivation for my running :D
But as I was tidying up my closet I realized I have come far from just that one running shorts! And there is more in the laundry! Haha.
I think this is enough :P
