I've been wanting to write a blog about running for a long time. I woke up this morning and decided "today is the day." And so, I thought, "Today, I'll go running and blog about some of my new running gear that I got on GREAT sale." So, I jumped out of bed, took some pictures of my awesome running gear, and headed out the door.
(also please note I still have my Dtag on my shoe from marathon. Not quite ready to let go of that little guy just yet)
I always, I repeat, always, wear running tights (either capri length or pants length). I hate wearing shorts running. So I got these great Nike running tights, originally around $60, for $15. I was pumped. But here's the thing, I didn't try them on. So, today I went out for a short little run. I'm trying to ease back into a training schedule after my marathon (my marathon! Wheeee! I will post more on that later). Well, these pants are WAY too big at the waist and there is no drawstring. FML. Seriously, I could not hold the pants up and was having major issues. So, I cut my run short, held onto my pants, and walked the mile back to my car, head hung in shame.
So, in sum, I cannot comment on the effectiveness of these Nike running tights. However, I now have an excuse to buy other running tights (that do have a drawstring).
Here's to a better run tomorrow!
