Too Much Gear

As I was doing laundry this week, I realized that I haven’t washed workout gear since before the marathon.

And I haven’t noticed that I’m running out.

Clearly, this is an indication that I have way too much workout gear and that I should pare down.  Of course, then I would have to do laundry more often.

Admittedly, I haven’t been working out as much as I should.  I took a bunch of rest days after the marathon (which is something that I should have done) and I’m still easing back into the rest.  Also, I’m picking up biking and swimming, which involves different gear (well, I bike in my running shirts when I’m on the trainer since I don’t need the pockets).

But I feel like my drawer of running shirts is still fairly full.  This is partly a result of racing – all those race shirts really start to add up.  I’ve already pulled out the ones I never wear, but everything else ultimately ends up in rotation.  Clearly, I can pare down again.  I’m not getting rid of them – rather, I’m keeping them in a box for this hypothetical t-shirt quilt I will someday make.  When I learn to sew.  I’m excellent at making big plans, you see.

So maybe I should go through my gear and see if anything needs to be tossed.

Of course then I’ll have to do laundry more often.
