I've historically been a capris girl, even in the summer. I have Thighs and a Butt and I don't like Chafing. But it's so freaking hot in the Puerto Rico summer that I just had to break down and buy some running shorts.
I had an old pair from Target's C9 line, but they were sort of flimsy and didn't have any pockets. I needed to call in reinforcements. I snooped around on some potential models and brands, both luxury and cheap, before settling on an Old Navy pair. They were cheap, had a reasonable 5 inch inseam, and had side pockets, so what the hell, right? I took a shot.
AND FELL RIGHT INTO HEAVEN.
How have a gone so long without side pockets in ALL my running gear??? Side pockets are the BUSINESS, my friends! Key pockets are so yesterday; I want to shove my keys in my left pocket and my whole goddamn cell phone in the right and CHAAAAAARGE! (aka slowly shuffle)
|I feel I should explain: the Amazon box under my bed is full of race medals.|
And finally: the price. They retail at $20. But it's Old Navy so there's a sale, like, every other day.
Oh, I found it: their popularity. My research has not been exhaustive but I've ducked into several physical
And now I'm telling you people and making it worse. I see the problem now: I'm an idiot. But that's not your fault, so buy a pair! You won't regret it.
Who makes your favorite running shorts? POCKETS ONLY.
