Skirt the Issue

Last weekend my oldest daughter dragged me to her favorite consignment shop.  The girl loves fashion and is a whiz at finding hidden treasures and pulling together the outfits that always bring compliments from strangers.  It’s a gift.  One I have no idea where she got.  I digress.

On that particular day, she didn’t find anything she wanted.  But I did!

A brand new, with tags tennis running skirt for only $10!  Yes, please!

The skirt features white shorts underneath and slits on the side.  Trust me, the white shorts situation gave me cause to pause.  But I decided since I usually run pretty early in the morning, if there was an issue of any kind, I would be the only one to know and then I would never wear them again.

One thing I didn’t notice until I put them on for my first run?  No pockets!  Which meant no house key.  Not a big deal but I do prefer a little pocket of some kind.  But there was a bigger problem with the built-in shorts.  They wouldn’t stay put!  They kept riding up in the front the entire time.  Thank goodness it was early out so no one had to witness me constantly yanking them down.  Classy!

This is me doing the yoga pose Viparita Karani.  It always feels great after a  run!  Anyway, you can clearly see my issue here.  (And once again, my amazing photo skills are on display!)

I was terrified I would end up with terrible chaffing.  Thank goodness that didn’t happen.  But I’m still not sure about this skort.  I liked it for the most part, but the riding up may be a deal breaker.

Should I give the skort another chance?

Do you run in a skirt?

  1. I was literally JUST contemplating the “running skirt” while out on my run TODAY!! I am skirt-curious, but nervous about the ride-and-rub, too. I have been hearing a lot of good things about some stay-put ones that Lululemon carries, but I know they are $$$ so I haven’t ever bought anything from them! I’ll go do some research and let you know… :)
