womens capri bottoms which curve around the calf

Posted: 22/06/2015 at 15:24

My favourite running capris have sadly died and I am looking for another pair, the thing is these curved around the calf which I really liked and I can't find any similar ones.  The ones I have found online all seem to cut straight across the calf. 

I was wondering if anyone had seen any that curve around the calf that they could direct me towards please?


Personal Safety for Female Runners

I have answered the surgery, but a few points.

I carry my phone so I can listen to music or audio talks.
I tell my husband when I'll be back sometimes so he can have dinner ready!
I do use RoadId sometimes though, especially in the snow but that is for collection if injury rather than attack, though I guess some people might use it for the latter.

Thank you mowzer for the response.  I don't want to be slipping into the river, that would sort of ruin the day for me!! xx

I am getting my things together for the weekend and I wondered if road or trail shoes are best for this event?

I prefer road shoes, but not if they cause a problem!

also is there anyone else put there doing the event / has done the event and can share any words of wisdom please?



Abingdon Marathon 2014

As a 5+ hour finisher, (had hoped for 4:59:59) we were very well looked after and monitored to make sure we were safe, healthy and ok to keep going.

I loved it, the marshals were amazing, the support from locals and organisers was fantastic and I am so pleased that all finishers were able to get a time and a medal having gone past the later 5+ finishers at the half way point!

A great club classic, wish there were more races like this one (or that I could find more races like this one if they exist!)

Thanks to the photographers, you were great and friendly when it was lonely out on the roads - loads of great pictures to choose from!

Also thanks to Mike at the sponge station (I'm sure it was Mike not Mick) for the water for my bottle and the lovely friendly encouraging supporters there.  Life saver.  My running buddy was also very grateful for the gel

Thank you Abingdon.  Never say never, I will go sub 5 hours one day!!

Oh goodness, lots of fast runners here!!

I'll be at the back keeping up the rear and hopefully sneaking in under 5hours!!

Any body done the Stort 30?

Definitely looking forward to this one, even if I will be running on tired legs.  Heard really good things about it from some runners I ran with for a while on a particularly badly organised event, so signed up

Dave, I think I came into CP4 with you (me being a CP volunteer)

Well done, we all think 101 miles was great going.

not been here for a while. It I was wondering is anyne attempting sub5 at Abingdon at a slow pace?

traning not gone to plan but hoping to claw myself back and would love to knock 5 mins off last years time but not sure how realistic that is at the moment.

will be doing a long run at the weekend so will see after that.
