A couple weeks ago B & I were in Victoria in search of Lululemon pants and a pair of crops I had seen online and during the Victoria Half Marathon. I noticed two girls running in them, and the little ruffles on the side were so cute and I decided then and there that I HAD to have them. My bank account was thinking otherwise, but once I had some extra spending money, I bit the bullet and went for it. I am glad I did!
The crops I purchased have a hot pink band at the top. They are super comfortable, and when you are running in them it feels like you aren’t even wearing pants. Whoa, risky business without actual risky business. For the longest time I have been running in a pair of Everlast brand spandex shorts. I love those because they have grips at the bottom hems, so they don’t slide up your legs. However, since colder weather is upon us, I love these crops as a happy medium. I have ran in them probably six times now, and I am happy that they don’t slide around in the waist, and although they cover your knees, they are cut at an angle so your knees can still bend and move freely. There is also a drawstring pull inside the waist to adjust the tightness, and a small zip pocket in the back for gels, keys, etc to slip inside. Note: the ruffles aren’t too visible on this picture, but they are there! They’re small, nothing huge and distracting, but they are cute and add a little something to these crops. They run for (har har) $82. Pricey, yes, but if you are going to wear them a lot, then the cost per wear is worth it!
Alright! Breakfast is done, and I don’t have to work for another couple hours here. Ah, shorter days. I love you so! I plan to run seven miles today. I have already done three, so the last four will have to wait until after work. I’ve already showered, so… Yep. Gotta wait!
Have a happy Monday! 🙂
