Running skirts are one of the best things to ever happen to fitness fashion. It took me long enough to discover the phenomenon but once I got my first skirt from Skirt Sports, I pretty much knew I was a goner.
I am SO excited to be Skirt Sports Ambassador, not only because the styles are completely awesome but because it’s a product and clothing line, that I absolutely believe in.
I’ve always been a capris and long tights kind of girl when it comes to races. Short shorts were never comfortable and would always ride up and look crazy because of all the junk in my trunk (and I say this lovingly). I’ve seen women on the course with gorgeous skirts but I really didn’t think I could be apart of the Skirt Sports tribe because my hips and bum would likely make the skirt look…weird.
My First Skirt
My first official skirt I wore to the Brooklyn Half Marathon earlier this year. It is a beautiful fiery red and white piece that felt perfect when I tried it on. This particular skirt comes with built in shorts that have a lining around the bottom of them that help them not to rise when you are running.
The shorts did not move for the entire 13.1 miles (and the afterparty too!) as a matter of fact, I got so many compliments on the skirt, before and after—It was also pretty hot out and it was nice to not have anything on my legs!
More than just Skirts
The options are endless when it comes to Skirt Sports. They have capris, tops, skirts, skirts with shorts, skirts with leggings, skirts with nothing at all—all with the best patterns and colors. Here I have on a cute white tee and these adorable vibrant capris that I can match with on a ton of tops in my workout wardrobe!
Pockets For Days
My favorite and most useful feature is the huge pockets on both legs of the inner shorts. I can fit my iPhone6 WITH my Otter Box comfortably and not have to worry about stuffing it in my bra. 🙂 It’s also a great place to store gels and other snacks–but I recommend you keep keys and other important stuff in zipped pockets.Sharing why I am completely obsessed with my @skirtsports running skirts! #skirtsports
