    I love this post about reasonable priced athletic wear, because I am training for a half marathon I am in the gym everyday and need new gym clothes to keep up with my training. Although my mom thinks my workout wardrobe is a bit excessive (she may be right), wearing the same shirt to the gym is not only a fashion faux pas, its also unsanitary if it hasn’t been washed. This blog gave me great advice about purchasing new clothes/accessories without having to pay over 80 dollars per item. In addition, I also enjoyed the description of the items, which will help me decide what the item does, whats special about it and it if it would be the right piece of active wear for me.
