I have a dear friend! Her name is Kerstin. I probably love her so much because she is very much like me!
Unless it comes to shopping!
When I went shopping with her for the very first time, she went in every single shop she could physically find! She lives in a very big city!!!
Since then I hate shopping and I can feel for all the men out there!!! How exhausted I felt after hours of walking from shop to shop just to see the same things over and over again!!!
I am not the type of girl who has to see all shops on this earth! When I want to buy something, I know exactly what I want and where to get it!
No one needs countless pairs of shoes, 50 dresses, 35 jumpers or cardigans (then again… I love cashmere, as it is so nice and fluffy, so soft… and it gives you a nice hug in a cold winters night, right?!? So maybe I make an exception here) or 88 handbags…
We only have one body! Where would you put all these things??? After all, having a huge pile of clothing and accessories is just pure luxury. But that is fine!
I am not a fashion victim. Really! I never stick to the latest fashion, like wearing flokati like vests (who wants to wear a carpet, come one!) or these calf long vests with missing arms. Do you really want to look like a wizard???
I am not addicted at all! But… and now it comes:
When it comes to running clothes, “Inov-8” in particular, no one can stop me!!! I check the website regularly, check on the latest running shoes. Which ones are for road, off road, trail, fell, which one is the latest, what does it have for features, which is the lightest…
Oh and the jackets! Waterproof, windproof, colours, summer, winter, thermo, fleece… Hats and gloves. Merino is the new black!!!
I browse all the latest clothes and tools, also books and right now I am all pins and needles, waiting for my latest order which supposed to arrive today! I didn’t even go shopping for food, because I am too frightened I could miss the postie!!! Pity I have to leave soon to pick up my little girl from school, but I could run…hmmmm….
Though I still feel ill, I got up at 6am every day to get used to it, as once I get rid of this flu, I will start running at 6am every day to train for a half marathon next year! Usually I run only 4 days a week,
but my real goal is to run ultra marathons!!! Oh just imagine what for nice things I can buy then!!!
This nice running inov-8 vest with the bottles on the front sites would suit me very well (spotted yesterday on the almighty internet). At the back I could stuff the gluten free chia fruit gels I bookmarked… Oh and the trail shoe which is on offer at the moment would do just fine… Also maybe I should think about a “Buff” headscarf… or maybe I just stick to my cap. Although I should buy a second one, so it doesn’t get boring…
But addicted? A shopaholic? Me? Nah I don’t think so! Those sport items/clothes… THEY ARE OF VITAL IMPORTANCE!!!
Oooooh aaaaahhhhh, I think I am shaking a bit, my heart is racing… maybe it will get better when I order the latest ultra marathon book …. Where is the postie?!? I should go and check our doorbell now, just in case, you know….
