Why we like… Shorts

During 2015 we wore running shorts every month from April onwards, through the winter and into January.  This year we have donned shorts in March and intend to continue wearing them for as long as possible.  We’ve even created a hashtag #shortsclub (maybe someone coined that before us but we have adopted it with gusto)

Shorts are the best bit of running kit you can own, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of the warm breeze on bare skin and even when it’s not that warm, once you get moving you’re fine.  Plus there’s the vitamin D that you’re producing by exposing more skin to the sunlight.  Make sure that they have some inner shorts though.  Please. No, SERIOUSLY.      I had the misfortune of witnessing something that I will never be able to un-see at a cross country event (man, sat on floor, lacing up shoe, no inner short…I’ll leave that with you)

Yes it can be a little alarming at first seeing your legs au naturel and not encased in lycra but do give it a go… If you want… No pressure…

We like standing out from the crowd too

Shorts we are loving at the moment include these ones from Salomon, or how about these from Pearl Izumi.  If you’re not ready to go short short then these are more of an entry level short from Brooks

If you’ve got any good shorts, we’d love to hear from you.

By the way, we have not been sponsored by any of the above companies – we just love them…
