A while back I wrote about the chafing I was getting from running skirts during long runs. After posting the article, Skirt Sports reached out to me to try their skirts to see if they could help me with the chafing issue.
I received a Gym Girl Ultra Skirt and one of the Marathon Chick skirts. For those of you who have not checked out Skirt Sports yet, they have an UNBELIEVABLE selection of colors and prints for skirts. The Gym Girl Ultra skirt is a beautiful turquoise color and I chose pink for the Marathon Chick skirt.
I have worn both running skirts numerous times now and I love them! The Gym Girl Ultra is great if you like a little more length to your skirt and you prefer the compression shorts underneath. Plus, it has a pocket on the right side of the shorts that can hold an iPhone! I went running the other day and loved the fact that I could stash my phone there and it stayed put and was comfortable for the entire run.
The Marathon Chick is shorter and has the spankies (underwear) instead of the compression shorts. I majorly HEART this skirt! I wore this skirt in my last race and loved how comfy it was. The people cheering must have loved it too, because the kept yelling “Go pink!” I am a total convert to the running skirt with spankies—I think a lot of my chafing was from the fabric rubbing together between my legs and that’s just not an issue with the spanks. I can’t wait to wear it for the ZOOMA Cape Cod Half Marathon!
I also love that Skirt Sports was started by a fellow mother runner and triathlete, Nicole DeBoom. She believes that if you look good, you feel good, and your training and performance follows! I think she is spot on.

Skirt Sports provided 30 Something Mother Runner with two skirts. I was not obligated to write this review, but I chose to do so because I LOVE them!
