do your thighs eat your shorts?

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

As I run...My thighs completly consume my shorts! So every 1/4 mile I have to fix my shorts...not easy to do while running.
So...I have a product endorsement...The running Skirt! I thought it was goofy at first, but after I ran with it the first time..I was hooked! The skirt addresses a few embarrassing things that happen while running. First is the thigh consumption...the skirts has a running short underneath the skirt so your thighs can feast all they want and the skirt conceals it...keeping you looking cute and not like you are wearing a diaper. The other main concern for me is unflattering sweat marks. I had already started wearing only black shorts, because the last time I wore gray..I looked like I peed on myself. The skirt I can buy in any color because the overlay of the skirt conceals any sweat marks!

This blog may come off as a little shallow...I am sure you are thinking, "why do you care what you look like while you run?"

But, for me, running takes focus and confidence. So anything that makes me feel better about myself gives me the confidence to go out and conquer that run! And if I am not worrying about fixing my shorts...I can focus on that final mile!

So go get your skirt on!

    Hey--it's not shallow, it's a fact of life! The less I have to focus on other things, the more I get into my "Zone!"

I have a cute Nike running skirt (Academy for $10...woo hoo!) and I do enjoy it. I have gotten used to actually wearing a pair of tightish bike shorts underneath whatever I'm wearing. It's kinda like guy's boxer briefs--there is NO way these can give you a wedgie because they come all the way down your legs AND it keeps my tummy in and non-wiggly when I'm running.

I'm glad you found something to help with this annoying problem!

    Amen sister!

I have not tried the skort yet but I love the idea. Right now I actually wear tighter fitting athletic pants or capris cause my thighs rub so much I'm getting chaffing :( (sorry for the TMI!)

When I get to the point where I can wear shorts, I'm going to try the skorts. Thank you for the tip!

    I read your title and immediately scream yes1 It made me smile and yes I love skorts too, when I lose enought to wear them again. For now I will stick to my Navy blue sweat pants and keep walking away what I can and water jogging the rest.
