Cold Weather Running Pants

I’m bored with the treadmill. I can’t help it. It doesn’t matter how many games I try to play to keep myself interested. I still want to jump out a window after I’ve been on one for about 10 minutes. So, in an effort to motivate myself to run outside, or at least remove one of my excuses for it being too cold – I just invested in the Women’s Ultra Windblocking Tight from Pearl Izumi.

I took a bit of a gamble ordering them online but I know from experience that Pearl Izumi Medium consistently fits me really well. What I love most about these pants is that PI uses different kinds of fabric on different parts of the leg so the pants keep you warm and protect you from the wind but don’t restrict your range of motion. There are two pockets for carrying gels or shot blocks over the hips for long runs and a splash panel that will keep my calves from getting wet if I run through a puddle or the mud.

I’m curious to know – what piece of winter gear can you not live without?

    1. Hi Casey – they are a bit pricey. Though I have Pearl Izumi gear I’ve been wearing for YEARS. So if you think about it, and these are the only cold weather tights you need, I think they are worth it… at least that’s what I’m telling myself!
