I've had three pairs of legends and I think they're great. The only problem I've had is occasional toenail loss but they've seen me through marathon training without any problems. I'll be getting another pair next time.
I like my running kit to look as good as possible. I wouldn't mind looking bad if it were cheap but if I'm going to pay £45 for a pair of shorts and a vest then I'd prefer a bit of thought as to the design/colour scheme to have gone into it.
I quite like a lot of the Nike stuff as it is light, wicking, long-lasting and can look quite good. www.nikewoman.com is worth a look.
more of a tortoise - yes it was! my finest running hour :)
Sadly a couple of weeks later my knee gave way (thankfully after the race) and I've only been running again for the last 3 weeks. Abingdon was fantastic - I hope to go back and do a fast time (4:19:37 last year) and I'd recommend it to anyone. Were you there?
