Which is when I saw how much gear I actually use. And the lack of brand loyalty I display. You know how they say that running is so cheap, just the cost of a pair of running shoes. Well, they weren't thinking of training for marathons...
Here's my gear in US$
$320: Garmin Forerunner 305 (with heart rate strap)
$90: Asics GT 2110
$40: Fuel Belt hydrating system (4 bottles)
$35: Saucony running top
$25: Race Ready shorts
$25: Nike Chicago 06 (RunChi) hat
$10: Nike thin socks
$2: Clif Bar
$2: Clif shots gels
Total cost: $550
I guess in perspective, I don't pay gym fees, so I can justify the expense... Can't argue with the 1400+ kilometres (870 miles) i've done on the roads so far...
