Well, I was told it might be wet on the track, so I went and put on my motorcycle raincoat. And I had my own riding gloves so I didn't have to wear someone else's. I cannot stand wearing anyone else's gloves/socks/shoes/helmet or stuff which you know comes into close contact with this yucky thing known as sweat. Or perspiration. Or body waste and toxins. So even during training, I wear my own helmet/gloves. I used to ice-skate, and I ALWAYS wore my own skates. I think the only time I wore someone else's shoes was when I went bowling. And I really didn't like that. I didn't like bowling enough to go get my own bowlers' shoes.
