I think if the colour of your running gear is troubling you, you haven't really much to worry about.

Count yourself lucky. 


LOL!

How dare someone start such a trivial thread.

Bigger things to worry about include:

I wasn't exactly worrying about it though was I?

I found it a bit odd yes, but it wasn't keeping me awake at night.

Think that's an own goal D2D

What about Foska? http://www.foska.com/running-vests/?sef_rewrite=1

ooh - even get free pasta when you buy a running top.

Is that graphic actually a pocket?

It looks zippable.

Somewhere to stash your iso spam - handy.

beware of Foska running vests - for fellas they are nipple shredders par excellence....

... and their choice for females is limited.

During the working week I have to wear very sober business suits and sensible ties. When running I like to dress up like a superhero in lycra and day-glo primary colours and run about in public.

I had never realised just how odd this is until now.

I like black running kit, especially at this time of year, but wish it came with some decent patterns on. Skulls, bats or stars would be nice.

Nothing odd about it at all. Worked for Peter Parker and Clark Kent

Have you seen designer sportswear? I don't mean Stella Mc Cartney does Adidas (although some of that stuff is lush!) I mean the Prada does a sportswear line- check on Vogue!

Obviously never meant to set foot in a gym (if you have that type of money you could pay people to get fit/lose weight/look better for you!) but there is the possibility to design better stuff, for unknown reasons mass market producers for Nike and etc just don't bother and play it safe, black black black and black.

 I do think though that the reason for the brighter colours is to draw attention away from the fact that one is wearing skin tight lycra (and maybe a tad too tight being that your body swells once you get very warm!) and sweating to the speed of light!

Took me a while to twig when you said 'bats' it was the small flying things... Was wondering why you'd want a top adorned with sporting equipment...
