Let’s Talk Shorts
|January 23, 2012||Posted by Running at Disney under Running Gear|
Today I’m a bit frustrated. I went to my local sporting goods store in search of running shorts to wear in warmer weather in anticipation of my upcoming trip to Florida. I currently only have full and capri-length pants, which tend to get hot in the summer months. All I could find in the women’s section were super short running shorts that I am 99% sure will ride up on me during a run and cause some serious chafing. I looked at numerous brands, Under Armour, Adidas, Nike, Reebok, and all the shorts were only 3 to 5 inches in length. I mean if my legs looked this awesome runner on the right, then yeah I’d be rocking those shorts. But like a lot of women, my thighs jiggle and are not made for shorts like this.
So what’s a girl to do? Remain forever overheated from long pants in the summer. Buy stock in Body Glide to try to avoid chafing from short shorts. I want something cool, but comfortable. Does anyone else have this problem and have suggestions for a good pair of running shorts? My inner thighs thank you in advance for your help!
