Yo, I've thought some about tough times and running... Keep in mind that running is one of, if not THE, cheapest sport you can do. All you need is shoes that keep you uninjured. The nice clothes and crap people buy are not necessary (see the naked pumpkin thread). Running stores have to push gear to stay in business.

Most "exercise" clothes you already own are perfect for running -- even in cold weather.

You can even run in blue jeans if you want to. There's a guy from my hometown that used to jog 5 miles in jeans each morning before dawn. He was on his way to work at auto part factory. (He even did this run with an unlit cigar hanging from his mouth most mornings).

Bottom line, keep on running (and run more) in lean times.
