I purchased some today from t'interweb, cost about a tenner if I recall, .
I live in Poland, and it has already started getting cold in the evenings, so thought it best to be prepared. I thought i'd try them out and if I like them maybe buy some more expensive ones.
Frankly I couldn't give a monkeys what I look like when I am out running, and I can't understand why anyone would care?
Who cares if they are accepted or not. Up to you what makes you comfortable when you are running.
My four kids fell off the sofa laughing when I first put on my triathlon suit. My daughter was aghast when I told her I'd done a session in it round our town after a swim (she goes to the same school I teach in)!
Personally I hate running with anything on my legs, so although I own some tights I only use them for cycling or warming up in.
How many more justifactions do you want to have given yourself in your own question? They stop chafing (which apparently only has one f!!), they are comfortable and they keep you warm so whats your issue?!
I wear cycling shorts (under normal shorts) in summer and tights in winter - just get a long T shirt that hangs over them a bit more, or better still a jacket that hangs over..... personally I think that looks pretty cool on runners that i've passed in the street! But i'm one more for not wearing shorts over them, that just looks crap!
I've got a pair of tracksters too but they are just wrong in so many ways that I don't wear them!
p.s I remember the first time someone commented about my tights, they told me I looked like Billy Elliot - but who cares, I still wear mine!!
There's nowt wrong with my Ron Hills. I have customized them just a little bit though. This is me at a recent half.
I wear skins, as does my husband even if it's warm. I don't care if he looks like Linford Christie at the front, though I know he's a little self concious but we've both noticed how much better our muscles feel for wearing them.
FB - white lycra is wonderful
Quality grouting. I like that 'wet t-shirt contest' has cross linguistic divides too.
Blimey. She's fit.
