Dear Under Armour,
I love your running clothes. They seriously are great. They keep me warm or cool, always comfortable, and make me feel speedy. Which is why I was so excited when I got a pair of your running tights as a Christmas gift. The looked and felt great.
And then I tried to run in them.
I realized, I either needed to hold my pants up, or tie a shirt around my waist in order to prevent myself from becoming a running plumber. Not a good look for Daphne.
Today, I thought I would be smarter and safety-pin these lovely tights, like so:
A safety-pin on each side, and a band-aid underneath to prevent chafing from the pin. I must thank Krystal-Rose for the additional safety-pin and the excellent Woody band-aid, because just one was not enough to keep my pants up. All this, to complete an almost 8 mile run (at 8:52 pace! woo!). I will say it worked, but I’d like to not have to do this again. Please start making your waistbands proportionate to the pant size.
Love & Running,
