So, I am officially a convert to running skirts. I rarely wear shorts any more because I feel like the running skirts are WAY more comfortable for me. I bought my first two on a whim at T.J. Maxx. I figured for $14.99 each, how could I go wrong? On a side note, it’s kind of funny that the photo of me in the banner on my blog is of me in running shorts–probably the last pic you will see of me in them.
Why do I like running skirts so much? First off, I think they are just more comfortable than any running shorts I have ever worn.
I like the ones with compression shorts underneath (they typically come with a built-in panty or compression shorts). I feel like I can run without worrying about any chub rub or worry about my shorts riding up. I have worn them for short runs and runs up to 14 miles with no issues.
Secondly, I think that the running skirts are just more flattering on me than shorts. After having two kids and being a thirty-something, there are some things that I would rather be left to one’s imagination (you will not catch me in bun huggers any time soon!).
Lastly, I think that running skirts are really cute! Now that they have become hugely popular, there are so many different styles and every color and pattern you could possibly imagine. Although I only have two black skirts and a white one, I definitely plan on adding to this collection. I think I need to add a little more color to my line up!
So, my question for you is shorts or skirts and why?
