Meet Sarah & Kelly
They are the women behind Spandits.
Spandits is a Maine company specializing in creating high quality, original athletic apparel. Both of these women are amazing. They are mothers, running coaches and marathoners. They know running and what feels good.

I came across their store on Ward's facebook page a few months ago and immediately fell in love. I have gotten quite bored with my plain black and gray tights and capris. Yes, they match just about any top, but there's nothing special about them at all. Now, Spandits is all about special and original. They stand out in a crowd and definitely get quite a bit of attention.
I was given a pair of Confused Cheetah capris to review by Kelly and Sarah. I cannot think of a better way to review running clothes than to run a race in them. Now, I wouldn't suggest trying something new out for a marathon but I think it's safe to try something out for a 5k.
|Proudly showing off my new Confused Cheetah look|
- Super silky fabric, I really couldn't get enough of it. I kept rubbing my hands on the fabric. Weird I know, but it felt awesome
- Waist of pants came to my navel area, just high enough to cover the awkward mommy belly but not too awkwardly high
- Little pouch on the inside - perfect for key, gum, gu, whatever you need, just as long as it's small
- Fun attention getting prints

- not a single thing!
I actually went to Hannaford and Reny's after the race (yes, all sweaty and gross) and overheard so many people commenting about my pants and actually received 5 compliments about my new capris.
I have worn these capris 3 times this past week. I may be a little obsessed with them. Each time I've worn them, I've noticed how supportive yet silky they feel.
|Check it out, they match my fun purple Asics too!|
- men's shorts, tights, 1/2 tights,
- youth over-the-knee capris, 3/4 tights, shorts, tights
- women's 1/2 tights, 3/4 tights, full length tights, over-the-knee capris, shorts, boy shorts, running skirt
- calf sleeves & arm sleeves
- skull caps
Please note, some items are very new and photographs are not available just yet. However, I did see a woman sporting one of the skirts and it was awesome! I wish I had taken a picture of her now.
Izzy and Tucker both wanted headbands - so of course I bought them each one. Tucker has been wearing it daily for the last week. I can't say if he's gone to school like this or not, since I don't see him in the morning, but I can say that he definitely has it on in the afternoons when I get home. I think he looks like he's ready for some kung fu action or something. Don't you?
Oh and Izzy has been too cute with hers. She's been wearing it around the house - saying she's a runner and it helps her run fast. That girl is adorable! I've got to say. I tried on Izzy's and I love it. I actually tried it out on a run this week. It didn't slip at all and it wasn't too tight.
Since I am beyond pleased with my capris, I want to share this happiness with one lucky reader. I will buy one very lucky reader one item from the Spandits store. Yes, that is how incredible I think these pants are.
