My current exercise clothes? Not so cute.
They’re functional but frumpy.
While you don’t have to look the part to start running , it helps. I’ve decided to make new exercise clothes my rewards during the Couch to 5k program.

As a reward for starting, I’ve gotten myself new running shoes. Really, the shoes were a necessity more than a reward: the last time I used my current pair of running shoes (a pair I bought from Walmart to wear at work when I worked in the dining common my sophomore year), I could feel water seeping into my socks after running through a puddle.

Two of my favorite colors AND I’m sure water won’t leak through the soles.
