  3. What are you wearing… used books for sale? Interested in learning how people stay warm before a cold-morning start. That shirt looks awesome!

      I’m wearing an old t-shirt I didn’t care about! I have a short sleeve underneath it as well. I slit the top and the bottom so I can literally rip off the shirt right before the start or even during the first couple of miles. Whenever I have a shirt/sweatshirt/etc I don’t like I throw it into a bin labelled as throw away clothes and I use them to keep warm before races!

  4. What do they do with throw away clothes? Are they donated to charity? If so, I think that’s awesome. Then I wouldn’t mind doing that so much. But I’ve never seen anything like that here in Europe. @ Mile Posts By Dorothy Beal:
