Last winter when I bought running tights, I had no idea what i was doing. Which showed when i bought tights that are to be worn to keep you COOL!! Whoops! I have had to wear them a few times and while they have done ok, I am freezing after my runs.
So on Saturday we went to Dick's Sporting Goods to find some tights to keep you WARM!! :) I was quite surprised by the fact that most of the ones they had were to keep you cool? Very few were for warmth. I was about to give up when Jeremy saw a back of a rack that I had missed and sure enough they had the right kind of tights! I tried on two different styles and found one that fit and weren't as "long" as the other ones. Being short makes it hard to find pants.....
Also while I shopping I found a base layer green long sleeve shirt. Of course it was to keep you COOL but I love green and am a sucker for anything that color and it was on sale and jeremy said to go on and get it!! :) yay!
I also tried on some green (notice a pattern) Brooks Ghost 4 shoes. I dont need shoes yet but will in the next couple months. Although I love my local running stores I dont feel like I can just go in and try stuff on without buying something. So I saw these shoes that I had eyed on the internet and decided to try them on so that when it is time to buy shoes if I find them cheaper online I'll know if i like them or not and what size to buy.
does anyone else feel guilty if you dont buy from your local running store?
