Skirt Chaser

The cover story of this month's Runner's World magazine is about the fashion tidal wave that is the running skirt.

I started wearing running skirts before there were running skirts. I'd buy longer, non-white, tennis skirts and train in those. If you catch me wearing one of my older running skirts, I can show the hidden pockets that you're supposed to use to tuck a tennis ball for second serve. Whenever I'd wear a skirt to a race, a few women always asked where to get one. Other people were like, "WTF is she wearing".

Honestly, I don't know if I'd have kept training if I couldn't have found the skirts. I hate my thighs and the skirts make me feel a little bit better about myself. The skirt allowed me to feel girly enough that I wasn't horribly self-conscious.

Whatever gets you out to train is all right with me. All hail the skirt!

  1. Read that article also and immediately ordered one from Title Nine. Will wear for first time on today's run. Hopefully should eliminate any panty issues too. Lisa in OK
