I wish I wasn't wearing pants

Looking for some eye candy, are you? Photos only by request.

This morning, as I was getting ready to go running while Alec was at swim practice, I was looking for light gloves and my knit watch cap. I was already wearing some track pants and had to hustle Alec out the door. I was expecting it to be chilly, likely just above freezing.

When I got to Mercer Island, I was amazed to see that it was 50 degrees! It was way to warm to be wearing track pants. I've got to find something better for my lower body when I run in winter. Something that breathes better (that was the most part of my problem).

I'm not sure if I am secure enough to wear "running tights" but there has got to be something. Not leggings - maybe running pants. That sounds manly. I'll have to look for something. Any pointers?

I actually did get a pair of running pants - a little less tight than tights. Now, I'm waiting for it to get cold again!

eh, just suck it up and go with the running tights - definitely the most comfortable option available. If you feel insecure about it, just ask Heather whether you have anything to worry about ;-)
If you can't get comfortable with that though, new balance makes some pretty good lightweight running pants.
