Because Sometimes…All It Takes is a Pair of Pants
Hi – I’m Emily from sunny San Diego – runner, hiker, yogi and pretty much
always spotted in leggings.
I have notoriously always struggled with confidence. I have been running for 10+
years, but honestly haven’t always felt like a “true” runner. I lacked the
stereotypical body of a runner and was never shaped like any girl on my track
and cross-country teams. Rather than thin, graceful legs, I had thick, muscular
thighs and a curvy backside. For years, I believed girls who were thin and fast
were “true” runners, while I was just someone who ran…a lot.
Not only did I lack confidence towards my body, I was timid and painfully shy. I
liked to remain in the background – wearing all black when I ran so as not to
draw attention to me. Like I said, the confidence struggle was real.
As I grew older, sure, my confidence levels went up. But, I was still missing that
Upon joining November Project SD, I was drawn in by one of my friends’ leggings
– patterned, vibrant, and flattering…the complete opposite of my plain black
leggings and grey shoes.
As someone always on the hunt for new (and flattering) leggings, I decided to
take a leap and break out from my normal black attire and snag a pair of Zayze
Sugar Skull leggings after chatting with this friend about how much she loved
When I put these on, it was love at first fit. The pants’ wide waistband didn’t fall
while I ran, the legs compressed all the right areas without being too tight, and
my thighs and butt looked fantastic! I felt stylish and incredibly fit and strong! I felt
like a runner – proud of my strong body and proud of my speed.
More than that, the vibrant pattern had me feeling fun and like I was ready (and
willing) to step into the spotlight! I wanted to be show these off and be seen! How
can you not with pants this loud and proud?!
You could say confidence levels went up…because, sometimes, all you need is
great fitting and fun pair of pants.
