Let me preface this post by admitting that it's shallow in nature, but hopefully, semi-relatable at least to my fellow women readers/runners.
I have always loved shorts, much like I've loved bikinis, but have never felt comfortable in them.
I'm 5'8" and have a short torso and long legs, so you'd think that shorts would be a God send, especially in the summer.
But no, they conjure up images of inner thigh rubbing, cellulite bobbing, white creamy legs that really should just stay under skirts and inside pants.
But when you run, especially outside in 90 degree plus temperatures, it's fucking hot and you don't care about your inner thigh jiggle, you just want to be naked because it's toasty and your sweating your God damn ass off.
So, I invested in some (yes, those that know me are laughing) Lululemon (www.lululemon,com) shorts. And they are short shorts. But they're cute. No, they're not cute....they're hot in a cool, sort of sexy way. They make my legs feel longer, my cellulite invisible and for a few brief moments, I'm a full fledged member of the athletic girls short shorts wearing club without feeling like a hoochie.
My advice girls...wear the cute shorts. You're sexy and you know it. Set your legs free. They'll get sun. You'll stay cool. And the world will be right again.
Aw, the hotness of shorts.
