A running skirt can make you feel like wonder woman, flying down the road your skirt flapping in the breeze like a sail.
Running in skirts is not for punks... it takes one graceful, stunning, hardcore woman to be able to wear one!
Here are some tips on choosing a skirt to run in.
1) What's the difference between a running skirt and a tennis skirt? The skirts made just for running are supposed to be better about the shorts underneath not riding up. However I've run in a Wilson tennis skirt without any problems and I really liked the way it fit.
2) You do want a skirt for running to be made out of moisture-wicking fabric so that you don't chafe. For added protection, you can put some body glide on underneath your skirt.
3) If a skirt is not made out of moisture-wicking fabric, you can always wear it over your running shorts, tights or capris.
4) Most running skirts come with pockets. This a nice way to carry your gu, keys and other small items. Here are some of our favorite selections.
Runningskirt.com. I like this one best because it has two big pockets and the skirt is longer, I also like the built in panties so there is no riding up.
Skirtsport.com. My issues with this skirt is that the pocket is under the skirt so you have to lift your skirt and show off your A$$ to put anything in it or take anything out of it. It is also a shorter skirt. The nice thing about this skirt is you can buy it either with breifs, shorts, or capris built in underneath the skirt.
I usually don't run in a skirt, not that I have a problem with them, I'm just all about comfort. But sometimes I feel like going all out for a race so I'll wear a skirt over my tights or capris. My favorite skirt to run in is from sparkleskirts.com. It's nice and sparkly and it flows very nicely. It's not made of moisture-wicking fabric though, so you will have to wear shorts or tights underneath.
