But first I have to find the perfect pair. I prefer shorts that are a little longer (inseam 5" or more) because let's face it, they need need to cover the areas they are supposed to cover when I'm running. Shorts that are too short can "ride up" a bit and may reveal more than my
I saw these shorts online the other day and I love love love them...
But they are too short...and way too expensive.
I also love the Brooks running shorts I got a few weeks ago...
Perfect length (6" inseam) and they were on sale so I got them at a really great price :).
But I would prefer if they were black or a darker color.
And I also love my MPG Sport shorts...
But they are shorter than I would like so I don't wear them as much
I have a few other pairs that I bought at various stores (mainly Walmart, Target, and Ross) that I've been testing out to see how they hold up. They are not necessarily designed for runners but on some of my shorter runs they work just fine.
Like most things in running, finding the right pair of running shorts involves trial and error. I have quite a few weeks of "running shorts weather" ahead of me so hopefully by the end of the Summer I will find the brand/design that works well for me.
In the meantime I'll be doing my research and focusing on my next running obsession...fine-tuning my nutrition to promote a balanced diet...
What do you prefer to run in?
Any running shorts recommendations?
Do you spend a lot of time researching what running gear/clothing/shoes you're going to get?
