I’ve been on a search for a running skirt that works for me for quite a long time. I’ve tried on every skirt I could find in my local running stores. I’ve ordered a few. I’ve even received one to review. Eventually I found my one true skirt. The skirt I’ll run many miles in. The skirt that I’ll likely run my next marathon in. (Wondering what I’m talking about? I heart me some Happy Hour/Happy Girl skirts from Skirt Sports.)
Along the way, I found a few nearly right skirts. Skirts that I could run in without too much of an issue. Skirts that I thought would be “the one”. But once I found my one true skirt, these skirts were relegated to the under the bed storage. They haven’t seen the light of day in months. And that’s not fair to them. They are designed to run. They should run.
So, I’m releasing them back to the wild out into the running community. See the descriptions below. If you’d like one , tell me which one and why. Choosing may or may not be random. You’ll never know. ;o)
Mondetta Leap Skirt in a size small.
I really liked this skirt, but the undershorts basically turn into “bun huggers” as I run. There isn’t enough glide in the world to make that work for me. Worn once for a trial run to write the review.
RunningSkirts Athletic Skirt in size 2 (I think. I need to check.)
This is a really cute skirt and I thought it was going to be “the one”, but when I raced in it, the skirt slid down and the shorts moved up. I felt like a whole lot more skin was showing at the end of the race than at the beginning! I think the skirt may just be a bit too big. Worn twice – one time to race and I actually got 3rd in my age group that day. (So it’s got good mojo).
Skirt Sports KickStart skirt in size small
Black Skirt with Pink compression shorts. This one was *so close* to being perfect. In fact, I was pretty happy with it until I tried on the Happy Hour Skirt. Not offensive in any way, but I’d rather wear shorts for training and my Happy Hour/Girl skirts for racing, so I’m giving it up. Worn once for a race, but I can’t remember which one. LOL
If you’d like one of the skirts, leave me a comment as to which one. I’d love to know if you have run in skirts before or if you are just interested in trying one. I will decide where they are going by Wednesday of next week and do my best to get them in the mail before I fall off the planet go to cub scout camp.
