Wearing a Running skirt?

DON"T FORGET TO ENTER MY GIVEAWAY HERE

Today was a day of firsts, I ran my first 10k and I wore a running skirt for the first time. (Race report will come tomorrow!!)

I gathered my outfit last night and of course tried it on to see how I "looked". Wasn't too sure but thought what the heck, you bought the thing might as well wear it. I purchased my running skirt from another blogger it is black with the "Run Like a Girl" motto on the back. It has the undies built in but I also wore thin undies as well, it was a more comfortable fit for me.  After arriving to the race and wearing the skirt for a while I felt more and more comfortable in it. As the race began I started feeling my thighs rubbing together and worried about having chafing. However except for being annoyed by the rubbing I did not have any chafing which was a huge relief!! The wonderful Hubs took me to Kohl's the other night and purchased me another running skirt, it also has the built in undies so I am going to give it a try to see if the rubbing is an issue with it.  I am wondering .....Do they come with maybe a little longer "undie" inside maybe with some compression?? Sounds like a good question for the ladies of runningskirts.com and MAYBE just maybe they will offer one for me to try and HOPEFULLY giveaway, we'll see what happens!

So HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT RUNNING SKIRTS??? DO YOU LOVE EM OR HATE EM AND WHY??

I want a running skirt, but I haven't been able to find one with compression shorts that are comfortable and stay where they are supposed to. I'd really like a Running Skirts Athletic style, but just haven't decided that I need one that badly. ;o)

I like the one I got from Kohls!
Zensah.com has some skirts that have a compression short underneath that is pretty long and are on sale for under $30.

I like to run in a skirt every now and then. I think that they look so cute:) I have the same problem as MCM Mama...finding one with shorts that don't ride up to the wa who:)

I was terrified of them forever, but now I really love it! So long as I have lots of body glide!

If you use body glide, you won't have to worry about chafing.
