Always Wear Tights

On Monday, I decided that I should try out my new running tights and look around at the new part of the running trail that had just been built.  So, I get my gear on - running tights, shorts over tights, fitted long sleeve shirt, and shirt over it.  I get in my Tahoe to be told that I have low air pressure.  Awesome.  So, I look at my tires - they look okay.  I head over to the gas station to air the tires up.  My dad and the hubs were both in the deer woods where there is hardly cell phone reception.  I get to the air pump, insert my quarters and realize I have no tire pressure gauge.  I've never needed one in this vehicle since it tells me the pressure of each tire on the display readout.  So, I decide to air them up and check the display.  Then, I decided this was for the birds.

So, I called my stepmom and asked her what I should do.  The appropriate PSI is 34, my tires have 30.  Then she reminds me that I have Nitrogen in my tires and to get that, I'll have to go to the dealership. I'm bound and determined to go running and not to mention I have to go grocery shopping later that day too.  So, I head over to the dealership by my house (where everyone knows me - I have no idea why besides that's where I get my truck serviced).  I get out of the truck and explain that I'm low on air pressure and that my dad and husband are in the woods.  They tell me to pull around and they'll fill em with Nitrogen with their computer.  No big deal.

Except, I notice I'm getting a lot of looks.  Oh yeah, I'm in my running tights....Awesome.  Needless to say, they aired up my tires - all 4 of them - for FREE with Nitrogen.  That usually costs me around $30.  That's awesome.  So, moral of the story, always wear tights when going to the dealership! ha! ;)

I had to have my car towed once after running when it wouldn't start (fuel pump issue). I got lots of funny looks at the repair shop too... ;-)

I'm thinking if you would've been in tights and a running skirt they might've paid you to let them help you. Hehe!
