I wish I could afford the elite clothing that's out there. It looks cool and I'm sure it's awesome, but right now I spend my money where the rubber meets the road--on shoes. Paying a premium for the right shoes leaves precious little in the budget for clothing.
Having rubbed all the skin off my nipples on countless occasions running
in cotton t-shirts, and worn Swiss cheese holes in my thighs from chafing, running specific garments are clearly in order.
So what's a money strapped Clydesdale to do?
Enter C9 by Champion.
If you want basic running clothes that hold up well, perform well,
and don't get in the way when you're running--but you're on a
budget like I am, then you're probably already familiar with C9 by
Champion. So likely I'm preaching to the choir out there.
That being said, today Sunday 1/19/14, Target.com is offering 40% off C9 clothing. Just use the promo code "GETFIT" at check out.
By using that code, (and my wife's RedCard debit card discounts) I got 2 t-shirts, 2 long sleeve t-shirts, and 2 pair of running shorts for just over $50. That's less than $10 a piece, and 6 pieces for the cost of a single elite garment by the most popular brands.
Anyway, thought I'd pass on the good fortune.
