Skirting the issue

Not running for three weeks is enough to drive anyone crazy - add to that the fact that I'm trying to save $$ and curb spending, and you have a full-blown insane girl on your hands.   So what has this insane girl been doing?  Web window shopping, of course!

A few months after I started running, I discovered these skirts and have been a fan ever since.  I have four of the Gym Girl Ultras currently, and had to retire a white one after it got washed with something it shouldn't have and turned a horrible gray shade.  I tried dyeing it, but that did not go well, and I had to chalk the skirt up as a loss.  :-(   I love the skirts for their practicality - long shorts underneath keep my thighs from chafing, they have pockets that will hold my key, phone, tissues, whatever I need.  They also have a hole in the skirt for your headphones so that if you listen to music while you run, you're all set.  I also love the way these skirts look and feel.

THEN I discovered Lululemon and this skirt.  I am IN LOVE with this skirt.  I don't own one yet, but I have a few friends who have it, and they love it.  I think it's just too freaking adorable. This skirt is going to be my "reward" after I finish my Half Marathon this spring.  Unless I cave before then.  So! Cute!

Are you a skirt runner?  What are some of your favorite running pieces?

  1. Omg those are so cute! I never thought about wearing a skirt while running b4 but someone has perfected it! Pockets even! I always have no clue where to put all my crap when I run. I dread wearing a fanny pack. :-O
