Yes, I am a runner! But I lift, crossfit, teach pilates and spin,p.s I'm a seamstress too. I've been seeing a lot of these types of shorts around the market and I just had to figure out how to engineer one. So I did! It took me a few tries,but I have logged in several of these shorts that you can wear for all of the aforementioned activities. Yes they are my favs for running but have inner panty liner,stretch wide waistband, rear zip pocket, back is vented to keep you cool and you can order them in 2.5" or 3.5" inseam lengths. I want color and visibility, and so have at it with these orange crush floral running short! Now available on the website. Stay tuned, I'm working on a new style too!
