Who Wears Short Shorts?

Not me..that's for sure.

When your 5'2 and have legs that look like turkey legs you tend to gravitate away from the whole booty shorts aisle at your local sporting goods store.

Maybe not that bad ....but pretty darn close.

So, finding the right running shorts has been a bit of a hassle for me. I cant wear the infamous Nike Tempo Running Shorts even though they come in all sorts of yummy colors and patterns because they make me look like I'm carrying an extra 10 lbs in my butt.

Like I said before no booty shorts for me 1) because I have Thunder Thighs from Hell and 2) because I look like a stuffed sausage when I try them on (yes, I tried them on and didn't eat for the rest of the week- kidding kidding)

So this weekend while at Dick's I found the Holy Grail of running shorts for myself. At least they're in the running (no pun intended).

Drum Roll Please.....................................

Presenting the Adidas Women's Marathon Run Short *insert applause*

Isn't that little Runner Girl on the back of the short too cute to pass up?

Well Dicks was having a 40% off Adidas Apparel Sale so it turned out to be a deal I couldn't pass up.

The Ultimate Test is tonight when they prove to me that my Thunder Thighs don't make them ride up.
Now that's definitely not the kind of short shorts look I want to go for.

Stay posted for their Final Grade!!

My whole leg thunders, not just the thigh, so I opt for capri length sweats although the shorts are really cute! Maybe someday the shorts will look good on me...

I have the same problem with shorts..running shorts. they always end up all chewed up between my legs! It sucks. So I end up wearing biker shorts under them to prevent that lol. It probably looks whack lol
