Early March is a great time to buy ...
RUNNING OR WORK OUT CLOTHES!
There are three reasons for this:
1. All the new summer gear is about to - or already has - hit stores, so last year's items are going on clearance.
2. Exercise resolutions have pretty much crumbled by now, so companies are dropping prices since new purchases are down (can you imagine how many people buy their first or first in a while pair of running shoes in January?).
3. It's season-change, and all the winter clothes are on clearance. After this bitterly cold winter here in NOLA (last night there was a freeze on the Northshore), I'm going to buy some running tights and a jacket or other insulated top. I FROZE on my runs this winter. Luckily they were few and far between, hee hee. Next year I'll be prepared!
