Running Skirts (HERE) aren't only a trend ... they are a lifestyle. Fashion, function, fit!!!!! I love the Running Skirts brand because they are comfortable and fit perfectly. The briefs and shorts underneath are super comfortable and breathable as well. The patterns and bright, vibrant colors that they are offer are just too cool not to pass up and definitely make a statement.
I loved the length of the Preppy Purple Argyle Skirt (HERE) that I received. The fit was awesome and the length is FANTASTIC. I love running skirts, but sometimes am still self-conscious by them bouncing around while I run. The length and the shorts/briefs underneath work well to prevent chaffing and don't ride up much. I ocassionally need to pull them down ... but I'm never tugging at them while I'm running. The skirt also has a nice pocket for gels, iPods, etc. I personally have never used it, since I prefer to put everything in the pocket of my handheld water bottle.
This skirt retails for $58.00 on the Running Skirts website.
I have been in LOVE with my purple RunLove Compression Socks (HERE) from Running Skirts. I have a few other pairs of compression socks from other companies and I adore these babies. The color is fun and the heart accents are adorable. I receive so many comments on these at races and while I'm out training. Some people snicker, some people just smile, but most say, "nice socks". They are comfortable, even for long distances and they've been great even in the heat. They breathe really well. I wore them the whole second half of the summer. And, I really love them for Spring and Fall months when the weather can be iffy or cool. They are a great alternative to wearing running tights under your skirts or shorts. They don't move, slouch or pinch. I didn't say they weren't hard to get on/off, though. They are available in the funnest (yes, I'm making that a word today!) colors around: pink, blue and purple.
These socks retail for $32.00 on the Running Skirts website. And, the more you buy, the more you save!! Check out the specials they are running (pun intended!) right now. Get a group of your running buddies together and place an order. Ok, I give you permission ... go ahead ... flaunt your stuff out there on the road. If I lose these next ten pounds that I've been trying to get off ... I'm treating myself to the blue pair.
