Be Sure To Try Out New Gear

Reading a post tonight made me thing about making a recommendation to those of you out there who are participating in fall/winter events. Don't forget to try out any new gear prior to doing your event.

This post in the Happiness One Mile At A Time blog helps make the point. Never try new shoes, new clothing, new nutrition products or gadgets for the first time during an event. Test things out beforehand. New shoes can cause blisters, new clothing can cause annoying chafing and new nutrition can make you sick!

Get a feel for something new you want to use long prior to race day and you won't have any regrets.
