My neighbor Laurie …

… has run for 180-some days in a row. She’s a wonderful woman, but a kooky harrier. In the winter, she runs in her jacket. Sometimes, she’ll also throw on a black ski mask.

It’s an interesting sight to see every morning.

But I also think Laurie’s getup flies in the face of Nike, Adidas, Converse and every other “running apparel” company. I ran my first 10K when I was in 2nd grade, and the miles have only increased with the passing of years. I’ve run in Nikes, Adidas, Asics, etc—primarily whatever brand Marshall’s is selling for the cheapest price. As for apparel—my apparel is a T with the sleeves cut off, and a pair of old running shorts.

It’s one of the things I love about running. Just go out and do it …
