It's winter. Which means about 50% of my runs are done with something covering my legs. And for every winter that I've been running, that means one of two looks:
Running Tights: if I'm feeling skinny and have a long enough shirt to wear with them. Which, I have no pictures of. I guess I don't feel skinny enough to wear just tights that often.
Or... the ugly looking... tights with running shorts over them:
Also, after 2 years, I still can't believe Melissa
forgot to wear her Bitch shirt to a Bitch Race.
Well, as you know, this is the Year of Vain Amy, so I am actively trying to shed some weight that was gained late last fall, and that means feeling pretty gross in all of my clothing. Particularly, my running tights that are creating a lovely muffin top with my too-tight-for now running tops.
Last week, I was perusing Running Warehouse's Sale section and came across these pants:
Nike Women's Thermal Pant.
I was intrigued. They are still fitted, but they aren't skin tight.
And, they look decent in the butt, too!
The main selling point for me is that they also come in lengths. So, I was able to get a SHORT length for my petite
short ass legs. AND they are currently on sale from Running Warehouse for $48.88 (and use code FB15D for an additional 15% off).
So far, I LOVE THEM. Such a great alternative to tights. I think I'll probably order a couple more pairs and fully retire the shorts over tights look. The best thing is that on REALLY cold days, I'll be able to layer my running tights under these for two layers of warmth.
Anybody else rocking the shorts over tights look? Am I the only one that does that?
