***UPDATE!! WINNER!! LADYBUGS714 e-mail me your snail mail, CONGRATULATIONS!***
I wore some of the most comfy pants ever this week, and they’re from One More Mile.
I almost went to bed in them. For serious.
And I normally have an issue with pants. It takes me a LOT of research to actually procure even just one pair of any kind of pantelones. I am, (how do you say) vertically challenged,(approximately 5’1”) so finding pants unless they’re capris, is a big problem for me. I try on gobs and gobs of pants. And ordering pants off the internet is not even an option for me, ever. (You can just forget jeans. I won’t even tell you what a nightmare that is!)
But One More Mile assured me that the “regular” size would probably fit my short legs, and sure enough: perfect. It was like the clouds parted and the sun shone on me. When I got them, I only had one foot in the door before I tried them on because I was so curious about the length.
A little about these pants: they are made to be less like pants and more like loose-fitting running tights, hence their name “Not-So-Tights”. They have a tapered leg and they are zippered at the ankle. Because I’m not really a “tights” person (I in fact have a deep-rooted fear in tight-pants), these still make me happy because they are loose throughout the leg and they don’t hug my bum. They’re made of a diamond-knit wick-lite fabric that is so super-soft and why I didn’t want to take them off.
They are very, very light, but still they lock out the cold. They are still warm while being light. It is still just a little warm here in Florida so I can’t wait to really try them out in the cold cold, but the fabric is so great they also didn’t overheat me in the warm weather either! The pockets also have velcro on them so you can put things in them and they’ll stay closed.
What is my least favorite thing? The waist part is just the slightest bit high, so I have to fold them over a bit. But the length is so perfect that it almost cancels it out for me. (Plus I blame it on my short-people torso and my fight with pants in general.) I am pretty sure, though, that when it’s cold I’ll enjoy the high-pantsness of it because it’ll cover up more of me with that fantastic fabric.
So the pants? Love em! Before I let you go, I want to tell you about my undying love for the company, One More Mile. If there were such a thing, they’d be on my speed-dial. I love their tank tops (I have a “One More Mile” and “Will Run for Wine” tank top, both in pink, but they also have “Will Run for Beer”, “Will Run for Chocolate”, etc etc). I have their “Runner Girl” magnet on the back of my mini-van, I have ordered their jewelry (I got their 13.1 charm after doing the half-marathon earlier this year). I personally love their slogan the most, I cannot tell you how often I’ve uttered to myself whilst wanting to quit, “Keep going. Just ONE MORE MILE.”
Another reason they’re so cool is that they’re offering YOU a chance to win one pair of these luxurious pants!
