Spandex love

When I started training for my first marathon in 2009, I fell in love with running skirts.  Eventually I realized that what I actually liked was the spandex shorts underneath and the skirt was unnecessary fabric.  Thus began my love affair with spandex.  A while ago, Page reviewed a pair of shorts she got at Target.  Being an avid Target shopper, I knew I wanted to try them.  I purchased a pair two weeks ago and it was love at first run.

Original pair (cat not included in purchase price)

So this week I returned to Target to get more.  Because can you really have too much spandex?


Though I was tempted to get two more pairs of shorts, I decided to go with shorts and capris because then I am covered for more seasons. (I won't mention how much I already own)  Totally justifies my purchase, right?

Do you have a good pair of running underwear to wear underneath? Moving Comfort makes some that don't ride up and are great under spandex.

Love my running skirts but you are right, it may be the spandex. You can thank B.o.B. for "introducing" me to you!

I love target! I mean, is there a better place?! :) (I, too, rock workout gear from target) :-)

PS - are you running Clarendon Day 5 or 10k?

I love Target and I love spandex...looks like I might be making a little trip over that way to pick up some new running gear.

Will you let us know how you like the capris? I could use a new pair and if you like them I might give them a try!

The workout clothes at Target are my favorite - affordable and comfortable. I will have to check out the spandex shorts!
