I had another dead Garmin battery and another night of guessing how long I’d been running. Obviously, I’m not a quick learner. I was exhausted yesterday, so I postponed my training until today. I chose my route because I was in search for a key that might have dropped on the road. I did a slow jog down the road and back keeping an eye out for a lost key. It felt good to be moving and the key search kept my mind of the distance and the heat. I wore a pair of running shorts and was quickly reminded why I’ve become a running skirt convert. Unless you are Barbie, I would expect other runners to understand chafing. My shorts were short, it was a bazillion degrees outside, and I was sweating. When I run, I intentionally make sure my thick thighs do not meet by covering them with compression/spandex shorts. My not-so-sexy behind does not need to be seen by the world. Thus, the running skirt is a perfect solution for me. The skirts I wear come with compression shorts under them to keep my friction under control. Then, the skirt adds a nice feminine touch while covering what needs to be covered. I LOVE the skirts from Running Skirts (www.runningskirts.com).
On the topic of running skirts, I just bought this one to wear at the Run Like a Girl Half-Marathon in October (www.runlikeagirlbellingham.com). Check it out! I have a great group of women joining my Sole Sister’s team. It is going to be a blast and an experience the gals will never forget.
