The newest fad in woman's running apparel is the running skort. A woman clad in a running skort was featured on the cover of last month's Runner's World.
Then one day while I was running and my running shorts (which I think are too short anyway) kept riding up I started to think maybe a running skort would fix the problem. Most have compression shorts and then a skirt on top. I have to admit I have an ass. It is mostly toned but I am not flat back there. Most shorts ride up the back and I am left feeling like my cheeks are showing.
So I broke down a couple of weeks ago and picked up a skort at the Reebok outlet. I have run in it a couple of time since I bought it. It is in the rotation with the rest of my shorts. I find that it doesn't ride up as much as my running shorts. Sure the shorts ride up a little but there is the skirt part that covers my rear so the world can't see my cheeks. I then had to admit to my husband that I broke down and bought the skort. He looked confused when I told him. "Didn't we just talk about your disdain for them?" He asked. I admitted that I am not doing this for fashion but modesty.
All in all I am happy with the purchase of a running skort. While I am still not a "Fastinista" the skort adds a level of comfort in the knowledge that my cheeks are not on full view for my neighborhood during my morning run.
