New Top - Run: Personal Best - Nice!

  • An easy-to-wear light weight tech top!
  • Made of silverescent™ circle mesh; an anti-stink, wicking mesh for weightless function
  • Knitted with silverescent™ for anti-stink and anti-static properties
  • Cinchable drawcord hem to keep from riding up while you work out
  • Flat pocket for key, card or music storage
  • Flat seamed for chafe resistance & comfor
  • Static Coal, Lolo Purple
I like this top a lot - simple and feminine. Not mucked up with a lot of color blocking or ribbon tape down the back and a little ruching on the sleeves to give it some interest. I would totally get this if I was in the market for a loose fitting and breathable short sleeve workout shirt.

For those of you who run, does the cinch cord position in the running tops bother you when you run? When I wear my I Just Wanna Run and Energy SL tanks to walk in my arm brushes against the cinch cord. I wish it was offset more to either the back or front of my body.

I don't mind the cinch cord on the tops I have. I DO cinch them, since I don't like them swinging around all loose, and it really doesn't bug me too much. I may have tucked the draw cord into my shorts at one point if it was bugging me, but it's not been a big deal. Definitely not something that bothered me enough to avoid, you know?

This is a really cute tee!

I do not use the cinch cord on my I Just Wanna Run. I sized down 2 sizes for the top, and I leave the cinch cord as loose as possible. I can't say the plastic cinchy-thing has bothered me - I'm actually planning to wear that tank for my half marathon on Sunday! I've worn it on practice runs up to 11 mi.

Tried this on yesterday, and I hate it because no matter what bra you wear, it's totally showcased. The boatneck doesn't work when you need a big'oll bra underneath to keep your boobzas from'a bouncin.

I totally agree about the placement of the cinchcord being on direct side. Wish it was at the back or side-back. When I run my pinky finger periodically gets caught in the loop as my arm swings forward in stride.

The only cinchable top I have is the Sunrise Tank. I don't cinch it because I like a looser-fitting top, and it doesn't bother me.

It came in really handy a couple weeks ago, actually - I was running outside and didn't have a pocket for my key, so I tied the key to the cinch cord and tucked it into the waistband of my shorts. It worked really well.

My friend I run with has a I just wanna run tank.. and whenever we run together and she wears it, her watch is constantly hitting the Toggle. It's soo annoying to hear the clicking everytime she swings her arm .. I think it should be placed on the side but alittle back. So it's not on top of your bum, but not where your arm falls down at your side
