Marathon Training Issue #1

I am a graduate student. This means money is not currently found in abundance in my house. I am not in fear of housing or food issues. In fact, I have the ability to train for a marathon (which also helps burn off the stress associated with grad school).

However, I have encountered my first marathon training issue. The issue is a fashion crisis of epic proportions.

As I have been running and lifting, my waist size has lost a couple inches. Hurray!

My legs are a little bit bigger. Hurray!

But now my pants no longer fit comfortably.

… hmmm… hopefully the local Goodwill has some decent pants in stock… because new pants do not fit into this year’s budget.
