Recently I was online trying to purchase Madam a new wet suit, seeing I was having to pay for postage I decided to peruse the running gear, starting off with the sale items then working my way up.
I found these Ron Hill running Capris
it seemed fitting that during a month of exercise I buy my first Ron Hill product. Ron Hill won a gold medal in the commonwealth games in 1970 and was the first Britain to win the Boston marathon but maybe more amazingly has run every day since December 1964, that is almost 50 years, think on that when you next moan about athoning, but then he might not blog every day! Not that hardcore then! Ron has an extensive range of running apparel.
Until now I have stuck to the cheap and cheerful running gear, cheap and cheerful is not however an expression to use with these capris, infact when they arrived I checked them all over for the gold leaf that surely they must have somewhere to warrant that amount of money but have yet to find it!
I love lots about them, the flattering V to hold the belly back, the two coloured waistband-even though it would remain unseen
to keep them up over the belly that is being held back. I love a pocket to hold my key, phone, gel, sweets, wipes and the kitchen sink and this one is bug enough and like Mary Poppin’s bag seems to go forever.
I wore these for 3 miles on Saturday, 11 miles on Sunday and 6 miles tonight. Happy to report, no chaffing, they are a great fit, feel comfy, sometimes you have to bite the bullet and splurge on some quality gear, I am glad I did and will be surfing the net at length for more Ron Hill gear, but this time in the sales. I recommend running with Ron.
