Ready to Run: 3 New Brooks Running Pieces for Summer
Yesterday, I shared deets from my amazing time in New York City where I learned all about Brooks Running, and today I’m reviewing a few pieces that I’ve gotten the chance to test out. Remember, even though we are a Brooks Running Blog Ambassador, this is not a sponsored post, so this is our honest-to-goodness opinion (as always!).
Running shorts can be tricky. First, they’re short. Like, sometimes really short. Second, they can just look so…well…runner-y. And I’ve never felt like I could quite pull off straight-up technical running shorts because I really don’t run that fast (this is similar to my past performance sunglasses hang-up) and a lot of them give me a muffin-top. But, I don’t like running in longer shorts, and I certainly like the features of traditional running shorts that are light-weight and oh-so easy to jog in. And, seriously, the Brooks Running Versatile Low Rise Knit Short is the best of all running worlds.
They have a fabulous low-rise slim fit, a wide waistband that’s comfy and flattering (read: muffin top begone!), and a cool two-layer mesh color-contrast look. They even have pockets. Real pockets! With a 3 1/2-inch inseam, they are short, but isn’t that what summer is all about? I know they’re $40 a pop, but they come in fun colors, and you’ll so want to wear them every day of the week. Promise.
