For my 35th birthday, I decided I'd run my first half-marathon as a gift to myself and my border collie who looooooves running with me! Right after a 10-mile training run on an August afternoon in North Carolina, I popped into my office for a hot minute when my co-worker spotted me thoroughly soaked in my cotton tank top and shorts. Some of you are shaking your heads, but I just didn't know better! Honestly, I didn't...
She suggested I try a Skirt Sports Gym Girl Ultra running skirt and I laughed at her, "I'm soooo not running around town in a skirt!"
Thankfully, she persisted and brought one of her skirts for me to try and I was hooked!!! I've tried other brands of running skirts since then and they've fallen short of my high expectations: they ride up, they have inadequate storage, they fit poorly, and on and on. I'm a true believer in Skirt Sports and have been wearing them exclusively since 2009!!! They make me so happy, I wear them every day. Shockingly durable as they are, I've never retired one item of my Skirt Sports gear, so I have a vintage collection. :)
Probably, the most unusual way I skirt is on the slopes, Snowboarding in my Tough Girl Skirt!
In 2011, I took up snowboarding in Colorado and started using my Tough Girl skirt as a base layer under my snow pants. Rather than leaving the skirt tucked in, I flip it outside my snow pants and this makes me most happenin’ on the slopes! Guys and gals slide up to me all day long, asking about my skirt! Where did I get it? Is it meant for winter sports?, etc. The Tough Girl skirt keeps my tush warm and happy, even on the lifts! Best of all, my husband can easily spot me among the masses of people ‘cause I'm the only one wearing a skirt!
I skirt in so many ways, as a Runner (Gym Girl Ultra), Swimmer/Snorkeler/Diver (Rolldown Skirt as a cover-up), Hiker (Ice Queen Jacket), Zumba Instructor (Lotta Breeze Capris), Swing Dancer (Wonder Girl Dress), Errand Runner (Serendipity Dress) and I wear my oh-so-comfy-how-can-it-possibly-be-so-perfect Skirt Sports visor ALL. THE. TIME!!!
Thank you Skirt Sports for your functional, fashionable, fabulous clothing!!
