Race-Day Salvation Lies in Goodwill Piles.
Ready to part with that ratty fleece you’ve had since the Clinton Administration? Time to get rid of your “fat” warmup pants? Well, don’t throw them in the donation pile just yet. These gems can serve as an important piece of race day gear: the throwaway.
It can get a bit chilly standing around the starting area before a race starts. You can load up on layers that you’ll no doubt want to shed — remember the 20-degree rule? — and then literally throw them away once you get warmed up. Voila!
And, most big races will donate all of the discarded clothes, so everyone wins. — Mags
