Exploring great and new running clothes

source_8de0c7c4ed60af69bbb164549d2c303b33825d0b319cf4f9d61461050883593dRemember when Columbus discovered America? Those were the days, when there were still places where no one had gone before!

There was still something left  to discover. Nowadays we’ve pretty much got the whole world mapped out. And even if we don’t, Google does. Just take a look at Google maps. If Columbus had done that, he wouldn’t have mistaken America for India, that’s for sure.

So if everything has been discovered, is there nothing left to explore?

Explore the world and yourself by running

I think there is! Both literally and figuratively. And the best way to explore both yourself and the world is by running. Sure you can see an area on Google maps, but it’s different if you explore it on your own two feet. And there’s nothing like a run to really make you feel like you’re in touch with your inner self. Even though your inner self may turn out to be like toddler whining that she wants to go home.

The importance of being comfortable

If you go out on a run it’s really important that you’re comfortable. Because let’s face it, running can feel uncomfortable all by itself! No need to add traveling underwear to the mix. That’s why, when it comes to running clothes, I’m very much like the Princess and the pea and Goldilocks. I feel every little bump or lining, and my running clothes have to be just right!

So whenever I explore the internet, I love to discover shops that sell great running outfits. After all I may be a runner, but I’m also a woman. And I love buying new running clothes. Knowing I can wear something new on my run, really helps motivate me. A new pair of running tights add a certain frisson to my run! And so do a new pair of undies.

Boldly exploring new shops and finding The Clymb

This week I discovered a great new site called The Clymb. I love their mission statement:

Our mission is to increase the well-being of the planet and its inhabitants by inspiring human-powered adventure.

Gotta love that! They’ve got lots of great running clothes, but I went straight for their underwear. Not only did I like the colours and models, I was very much impressed by a Colosseum bra that sported a pocket in the front! It even had a zipper! How convenient is that?! It’s even better than sliced bread if you ask me.

So after you’ve explored the world, I highly recommend you go and explore The Clymb. After all, after a run you deserve it!

Oops, I ran a marathon

accidental marathonUsually runners who participate in a marathon go through months of preparing and training. And blogging about their training.

Not Dutch Dennis Hübner!

For a year he ran 5 miles per week to get himself ready for a 10K.

But somehow, somewhere he took a wrong turn, and found himself surrounded by runners who were participating in the Rotterdam Marathon. Embarassed about his mistake Dennis decided there was only one thing he could do to save face: finish the damn thing.

And then he did. In a respectable 5 hours.

‘Stopping wasn’t an option,’ Dennis said afterwards.

Which just goes to show how important your mental state is during a marathon!
