I don't know about where you live, but here we've had one really brutally cold and quite snowy winter. As you know I'm coming back from injury, so the majority of my runs have been on the treadmill. But my trainer suggested that I get outside at least once a week for a run. I know that the difference in surface is important.
I will run in the cold. But through my Winters here, I have learned that the right gear can make all of the difference in the world.
So on a 19 degree (feels like 8) morning, I took my Respect Your Universe endurance jacket out for a test run.
The capris - they were simply adorable. I loved the design. I loved the length. They even had a little pocket in the waistband that would hold a small ipod, key, cash etc. They were a little snug on me in the waist. But I think I just needed a slightly larger size. I don't think they necessarily 'run' small. I think that I just needed one size up. But no worries, my belly baby is toning down and soon they will fit without being too snug in the waist area as they fit everywhere else. I will definitely use these for running, yoga, cross-training and the list goes on and on.
Overall, of the three Respect Your Universe products that I tried, I loved them all. And I would like to pass on to you a coupon code that is good until 3/31/14. It is good for 15% off full priced items. Just use MRSGLASS15 at check out here
