So, as of late I've been adding quite a bit of extra mileage to my weekly runs. I ran my second half marathon (first was last year) on Saturday. Woot!
Naturally, I've been enamored with fabulous workout gear as that always inspires me a bit. Thus, today's review is all over Nike's Dri-Fit Be Strong Polyester Training Pants. With the full length pants retailing for $60, these runner's delight may seem a bit pricey but they are so worth it. They make for a great alternative to running tights and are super for cross training, too!

The Nike Be Strong Polyester Pants: Mid-rise comfort
Performance meets streamlined style in the Nike Be Strong Polyester Women’s Training Pants. They offer freedom of movement, lasting comfort and a smooth look for any workout regimen.
Wide waistband with drawcord for a flat, smooth look
Triangular gusset for comfort and wide range of motion
Rise falls 1-inch below natural waistline
Flat-seam construction for reduced irritation
Performance fabric to help keep you dry and comfortable
The mid-rise Be Strong pants are fitted through the hip for shaping and relaxed through the knee for comfort during squats, lunges and other bending exercises. The slightly flared leg adds modern style. And, for a flat, smooth look that flatters around the middle, these pants feature a wide waistband with drawcord.
Dri-FIT fabric helps keep you dry and comfortable by wicking sweat away from skin to the fabric’s surface, where it quickly evaporates. The spandex adds just the right amount of stretch for working out in comfort.
Contrast piping as side seams
Fabric: Dri-FIT 88% polyester/12% spandex
And onto my review...
The Good: As mentioned, these pants are the bomb dot com. Comfortable, well made and, frankly, they make your caboose look faboosh. Plus, if you do a bit of digging online, you'll find them on sale! Like here, or here, or in capri length here. They also have short, regular and tall length for all heights!
The Bad: Very little to report here...you just may have to dig a bit to find them on sale!
The Verdict: A all day. These pants have lasted me at least three years and they are still going strong!
