I'm in Ohio for the holidays. My mom got me a pair of awesome running tights for my birthday, and I took them for a test run today. My older brother came with me and we ran 6 miles of really rugged trails (the kinds of trails where you frequently lose the trail and search the ground for a space that looks kindof stamped down). There were briars and trees to jump over and puddles to run through. I got my new tights all dirty and even had a tangle with briars so bad I had to stop and de-thorn myself enough to keep running. When I got home and took my tights off, my legs were all scratched up from the briars and were even bleeding in places. But amazingly, my new tights were just fine. Whew.
