My Olympic running leggings

Added Aug 6, 2012

London, United K...






This is my fourth(!!) pair of running leggings using this Papercut pattern and they’re just so comfortable to run in that I can’t stop making them! This grey pair goes so nicely with my Team GB replica vest that I couldn’t resist an Olympic-themed photoshoot (even though these were taken after running 10km!).

Read way more about these leggings over at FehrTrade.com!

Material Notes

Grey “Suzplex” technical wicking jersey from Suzi Spandex in Montreal. I reeeeeeeeally wish I’d bought more when I was there!

      Aww, thanks! I hope you feel better soon – I had a nasty bug that lasted for 18 days recently. and a coworker is out with tonsillitis right now. At least there’s good stuff to watch while you’re stuck in bed!

    Hurray for Team GB! And hurray for such awesome leggings! I’d never heard of Papercut, but now I have and I love them, so thank you! All this Olympic buzz is making me homesick…
