On Friday I mentioned that for the races I’m doing this weekend, I bought a new pair of running tights from the Gap.
Here they are:
What I liked the most about these pants – aside from the fact that they look cool – is the rear zip pocket, which is critical for holding gels, lip balm, hotel keys and other necessities for running a destination distance race.
Since I got these for 40% off (during one of Gap’s nearly ubiquitous deals), I added a matching space-dyed half-zip pullover.
These pants retail for $64.95, but since Gap routinely runs deals ranging from 25-40% off, you could realistically get them for a lot less. I paid about $39, which was an acceptable number to me.
An added bonus is that these pants have a similar feel to these Tory (Burch) sport ones:
The major difference (besides width) is that the Tory sport pair retails for $135, which is a price I equate more to items in my work or special occasion wardrobe than things I will get sweaty.
