In the world of womens fitness there are so many different diets, and exercice programs, but good old fashioned running is my plan!

My Search for the Perfect Running Pants

I finally broke down and bought a new pair of running pants. This was another item I always bought at the thrift stores and 5 pairs later still didn't have one that fit very well. Most of the time they were too short. I come across this a lot and I am not sure if 5' 8" is just tall or if they make running pants shorter than average. I was determined this time to find pants that didn't look like high waters. So I headed to the mall, which is like a foreign country to me, and wouldn't leave until I found what I needed. Being cheap I scoured the place for big sales. I ended up in JC Pennies and found a clearance rack of sports wear. Now, I may just be a nut, but when I saw that a $40 pair of pants was marked down to $5 I began to salivate. By the time I was done I had bought 3 other pairs of pants and saw on my receipt I had saved $145 dollars. This makes me understand why people flock to the mall. I still hate going there, but I feel like I may be developing a mild addiction for mall sales.
So my pants fit great and I think my jogging pants make my butt look a little slimmer. Maybe someday I will trade in my thrift store running shoes for a nice new pair of clearance rack shoes. Small steps!
