We all have something special that keeps us going when times get tough while running. For some it is a special mantra, for others it is a message on a bracelet and some even wear a necklace with meaningful charms. Whatever it is, we all have this in common: those inspirational words often help us soldier on, and can even mean the difference between giving up or finishing what we started.
We were wandering through all the stalls at the Cape Town Marathon Expo when I came across the Compressport Overshorts. As someone who is rather fussy about the fit and length of my running shorts or tights, I immediately liked the look of these shorts, mainly because they seemed a bit longer than a normal pair of running shorts and they felt incredibly light.
