It's nice of you to think of a gift like this for your wife! My husband is also a big fan of the running skirt. Have you convinced her to log her runs on RA yet?
Every time I mention them to my wife she just laughs at the people that wear them. She thinks that they are the stupidest idea that anybody has ever come up with. I think that talking her into trying one is going to take a lot of work...(obviously, I have nothing of value to contribute to this thread.)
Needs more cowbell!
My wife has recently decided to take up running (YAY!!) and this opens up a whole new avenue for potential Christmas gifts. I've told her about running skirts (because all of the women here and on the Runner's World forums RAVE about them) and she seems agreeable to the idea of trying one out. What should I be looking for, who has them at the best prices (we're on a bit of a tight budget this year) and how does sizing work? Do they all come with compression shorts underneath, or are some of them skirt only?
