At the rate he's been getting in and out of his little cheerleader outfit, I'd say Scotty H does...and Jacob's looking to be the next running skirt convert. :lol: Care to join the club?

Oh, you guys rock...

Yeah I probably wont get that running skirt.

You can look good running without drawing more attention to yourself. It's bad enough that guys feel the need to honk and whistle at you as you run past.

It seems to me some guy just thought to himself "God, I love short skirts. Why not tell girls to run in them now and we'll find some sexy female runner to endorse it."

Genius, bah.

But that's just my bitterness :P

Patagonia makes one as well (don't ask why I know!). Not many dealers in Canada but is orderable online I thinks. www.patagonia.com

Happy trails,

I have an idea... if any one of us can beat Jacob in a race, he should have to do Boston in the skirt and carrying the pompoms.
Now who's up for some hard-core TRAINING??!

Hey Rune...

Cool to see you here.....I wish I had known you were at The Wolfe this year (btw...my coach was the lst over the line...yippee)

Happy Ultra to you...and June!

hmm...if there were skirts like jacob42.2 suggests...just think how easy it would be to pee in a race :shock: :shock:

I considered getting a cycling skirt for a while because I use my bike as transportation a certain amount and sometimes you don't want to be doing groceries/stopping for a coffee/showing up at a BBQ in your workout gear. But I tend not to run to these things (well aside from my folks place for dinner, but then I bring a change of clothes since I have no reservations about arriving and hopping in the shower ;) ). So I likely won't get one either.

It's just so comfortable! I'm quickly becoming converted. Plus I don't know about you but I feel confident when I feel pretty... silly maybe but hey- whatever works! So for me wearing cute running stuff isn't about anyone else noticing, necessarily- just about me feeling good during my run. And if I feel good, the run almost always goes better. I almost always get a new shirt or something for a race so I feel good going into it.

amen to that!

For me it's the idea of having the comfort of compression shorts without LOOKING like you're wearing compression shorts. Plus they're just cute. lol
