    I highly recommend checking eBay for Nike gear! You can often find a ton of past-season items for waaaay cheaper than retail – I just picked up an aeroloft flash vest – normally $280 – for $60, new with tags (and I had multiple options in my size to choose from).

      The local shopping outlets can also yield some pretty amazing deals if you time things right – I have seen Nike Element Dri-FIT 1/2 zip tops for as much as $90 regularly priced…and picked up three at $10 each last year, and one for $5, at the Nike Outlet in Medford (which is conveniently ten minutes down the road for me). I have also had some decent luck at the Nike Outlet in Eagan, although that shopping center in general seems better suited for selection than truly amazing deals.

      (And I will still never forget the day that I got my $350 Flash jacket for under $50…)
