I didn’t until Tom Madura, Erie’s barefoot runner, sent me this note:
Are you still looking for feedback on what gear people got for Christmas?
I got a great Nike Dri-Fit cold-weather shirt, and three new pairs of tights from Running Funky.

Here’s Tom in his funky tights:
Running Funky has dozens, literally dozens, of funky fabrics (click on the drop menu under “tights colors”) you can choose from and tights are just $53, which isn’t a bad price considering a pair of boring old black Under Armour tights (like the 18 pairs I have in my closet) will run you $60 to $100 each.
Aren’t these way more fun?
