My winter running attire consists of 3 different running jackets as well as multiple warm shirts, wool socks which I also use for gloves and, of course, shoes (trail shoes). I feel very confident on putting on any of the clothing that I mentioned above, but when it comes to running pants, I am at a complete loss and need some help. Here is my dilemna: I have a few pairs of sweat pants, 1 pair of loose fitting windbreaker running pants and 2 pairs of the spandex type running pants (a.k.a. running tights). I see some guys running in these spandex running pants without wearing shorts over them while others always wear the shorts over them. This morning I didn't wear the shorts over them. In order for me to dress properly, and be able to run with confidence, I have to get this question answered. What is the proper way to wear spandex style running pants and should they be completely eliminated from the males running wardrobe altogether?
