                BTW, that is so sad that you lost her. Car accidents scare me...it's one of those freak things that we often have no control over, no matter how careful we are. Sad k

                  Jill, speaking of that skirt...I just tried it on at a running store today. It ran VERY large, the compression shorts were even loose on me in a size small (I wear about a size 6 and have bulky thighs, so I'm not super small). I also thought it too long and not stretchy enough for running. I can see why you didn't like it. I think it would be nice for hiking or maybe yoga, but not anything more active. Definitely not well desgined for running. And that drawstring waist would make me nuts. k

                    I've got a fever...

                      Do running tights on ANYONE not look kinda fruity?
                      Dropped down to about 35° this morning. So for my run I put on my favorite pair of tights -- the black ones with the red and blue accents. Nothing but a thin layer of spandex/nylon separating me from the elements. You call it fruity -- I call it freedom! Tongue

                      On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

                        I think that blogger is missing the point...it's not so much about wearing a skirt as it is about not having fabric bunching up between one's smooshy inner thighs...which is uncomfortable AND really unattractive. With shorts I was forever yanking excess fabric out from my crotch regions. I'd wear those snug sprinter/compression shorts, but THAT would REALLY make me feel self-conscious. The running skirt (skort) is all about the compression short with the skirt on top for modesty. The fact that it looks cute is just gravy. Big grin k
