Running Skirt Love

I want to talk about running skirts. Most people who know me know that I am not much of a girly girl and it is rare to find me in a skirt or dress. I used to love to run in my split sides running shorts but after a group of ladies from a running forum raved about their running skirts from I changed my mind. I had tried running skirts once before and they had compression shorts built in. The shorts rode up and drove me nuts so I gave up. The beauty of the skirts that the ladies were raving about is that they have a brief built in instead of compression shorts. I reluctantly gave a try.

I fell in love with the green running skirt I had ordered the first run and have never looked back. Not only are they the best thing ever to run in, no worries about your thighs eating your shorts creating that awesome lump of fabric up in your crotch to rub you raw, but they also come in the cutest colors and patterns! My favorite is my pink plaid skirt. I also have hot pink, green, and a black one that has the Run Like A Girl logo on the back.

My friend and running buddy, Laura, is giving away a skirt from So head over to her blog and sign up to win a skirt. You won't be sorry you did. I've recently thrown out all my running shorts. I now refuse to run in anything but these skirts. What skirt would be complete without a pair of compression socks? Here's a cool blog, Lil Runner, that is giving away a pair of CEP Compression socks.


  1. I entered both, I could use a running skirt and some compression socks not to be greedy or anything :) you look so cute in your skirt I can see why you have given up the shorts and become exclusively a skirt girl. :)

  2. Thanks, Erica! My friend Kay and I always wear our skirts at trail races and we get lots of positive comments.

    I've been trying so hard to win some pink compression socks this year. And, I can't justify buying anymore skirts so I've got to win one so I can feed my habit.

  3. I love that plaid skirt..sooo cute.

  4. the skirt was so cute. I like it! Want to have one also :)
