I have a problem...

I have a problem..I will admit it..I may need counselling.  I think I may be addicted to socks..especially running socks..but really I just realized this morning that I have a crap load of socks in general   I guess this is what you find out when you are on spring break and it is snowing and you decide to clean your room and go through some drawers to get rid of stuff.

How many drawers of socks do you have?  I have two..One large drawer is for my funky socks.  I will claim that I buy them for know that the kids love it when I am wearing fun socks.  But really I just like some crazy socks.

I also have a smaller side table that holds a crap load of white socks..many purchased specifically for running.  I love running socks!  I have toe socks, feetures (love some of them), bulega, nike, adidas and every other sock under the sun.  The funny thing is that I am not loyal to one brand of sock (obviously with all of the different brands in my drawer.)  I have some Bulega's that are ok..I have one grey and pink pair that I love!  I also have some Feetures that are ok..the elite I can wear on short runs, but not on long runs..the grey pair of them in the winter!  I guess you could say I'm a sock love is not just for one pair/brand.

When I was sad because my green hairband did not come in the mail before the RnR USA what does Megan say to me to try and make me feel better..hey maybe you can find some nice running socks at the expo to take your mind off of the green headband.  :)  Yeah I may have a bit of a problem.  And it seems like my friends may know about my problem too.  

I usually pick up a new pair of socks when I head to the local running store.  I mean really what is one more pair of socks thrown in with my running purchase, right??  

Do you have anything in your drawers or closet that you think..why am I buying another one of these??  Or am I the only one?  Please tell me I'm not the only one with issues... :)

My problem is Running Skirts! My husband always asks, "do you really need another one?" lol
Love fun socks too!

I have a separate area for my Injinjis and then an area for everything else. Nothing wrong with a bunch of socks -- most running socks last a long time anyway. :)

So funny that you posted this right now. I was just thinking how my Throlos have all kind of worn out and it's time to replace them. I bought tons of knee socks when I was crossfitting because you jump rope and drag barbells up your legs, so you need long socks. Now I'm back to running and I have to shift my sock focus!

I totally and highly recommend Point6 merino wool compression socks. I have like 5 pairs of the compression socks (both short and long) and then a few of their really soft and bulky hiking socks. They make me very happy in the winter :)
