I love running skirts. They're flattering, feminine, and fashionable. Not to mention that they're also fun AND functional. In my opinion, they're more comfortable than shorts (which often bunch up or chafe the inner thighs - I have to mention one exception here: my Roga shorts by Oiselle), more modest than spandex, and more becoming than sweatpants.
I recently tried the Motion Skort by Brooks. The website states that its a "versatile, smart skort to help you look and feel great no matter where your busy day takes you." And it IS all of those things and more. The material is light, breathable, and stretchable. The look is incredibly cute...so cute, in fact, that you could easily run to a coffee shop or stop in at the grocery store or go to a playdate afterwards without looking frumpy.
Oh and this skirt is one of MANY cool items sold by Brooks. You should check out their site. While you're there, you might want to apply to become a "lab rat" for Brooks' Biomechanics Lab Testing Program and/or Wear Testing Program. If you are selected, you get to test running shoes (and sometimes keep them!). Who doesn't love the prospect of free shoes?
WIN IT! One mama will win a Motion Skort (SIZE M - the skirts run big so this would be perfect for someone who would ordinarily order a SIZE L) in Shadow/Black.
