As a runner I have mass amounts of gear. Shirts, shorts, socks, and hats. I think I have more running stuff than regular clothes, just ask my wife. How many race shirts do you need to have to be considered a serious runner? Every event you go to gives away a shirt. And since losing weight some of the shirts don't fit. But how can I part with the shirt from my first 5K? I also have iPod belts and hydration systems that I don't even use. Some of the shirts I own hurt too much in warm weather, read chaffing nipples, I never wear them. Even though I have all this stuff I still want more.

With my quest to run 50 miles I question if I need any more gear for 2013. Do I need a head lamp? Another pair of trail shoes that have zero miles on them? What about a hydration backpack, I am going to be running a lot of miles? My kids just bought me running socks for my birthday so I am set with that.
How many race shirts do you need to have to be considered a serious runner? None, you have to just get out there and move your feet to better yourself.
A pair, or more, of shoes helps, but some would argue you don't need any.
