I was traveling again this week, and, on one level that makes training easier. I can get up, train and then be ready for the day, so long as the hotel has a treadmill. I laid out my running clothes before I packed, and my running socks (wadded up in a ball) were on top. Then I quickly packed, and away I went.
The next morning, after flying out the previous night, I woke and started to get dressed. No socks. Now I know what my 2 year old was clutching in her fist as I chased her the previous night. Hmmm. What to do now? Ditch the run? Run sockless?
Nah...I just wore the dress socks I had worn the night before. They were thin, and pretty close to the foot. I have seen my running socks, and it wasn't like they were magic or engineered by NASA or anything. So black dress socks on, went to the gym.
And you know what? Worked out fine.
