Last year I ran my first ever marathon and I did say never again unless it was London! But when I was offered the chance to run in the Manchester marathon which is now in just 2 weeks time I couldn’t say no. I’m a sucker like that, when I’m given an opportunity however hard it is I’ve got to give it a go because otherwise I’d spend my life thinking ‘what if?!’.
So with that in mind training went full stream ahead in January and my running kit got a bit of a battering with all the miles & all the wonderful winter weather. Anyone who’s a runner will know your kit doesn’t stay fresh for that long, however many times you wash it.
When I received the email asking if I’d like to review something from www.excell-sports.com, the opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time. I chose the New Balance Accelerated Running Tights and waited patiently for them to arrive.
A few days later, very speedy service, the came and without even trying them on I loved them! They are made of very soft material and once they were on, like some running tights, they didn’t stretch and loose their colour when I moved or bent over. They held everything together where they needed to and they just felt so incredibly comfortable. They have zips on the ankles which help getting them on & off a lot easier, especially after a long run.
They also have a tie around the waist do you can tighten or loosen the waist to your comfort.
The next test was to take them out on the road and see if they still felt comfortable after a few miles......
And I can report that they do. They have become one of my favourite pairs of running tights and have done a good few miles and are still in brilliant condition. I love the bright colours at the bottom of the tight and I didn’t even realise they go with my trainers! Bonus!
So I would give these a definite 10/10 as they are just brilliant!
