Another article by Captain G on us running girls ;)
Just because we're sweating it out, it doesn't mean that we can't look nice right?
So, always, always look pretty, even when you're working out ;)
RUNNING CITY GIRL: Run Like A Girl
IT’S a well-known fact: women love fashion. From girly to tomboy to sporty, we all love to look great in our own way. As running has become the current rage, so too has fashion for women runners.
For those who have never come across one, running skirts are made of moisture-wicking material and designed for running. In general, they come in two main styles; with attached briefs or attached shorts. There is a range of designs to choose from: Polka dots, camouflage, plaids and many more. The best thing about these skirts is that they are comfortable.
SKIRTING THE ISSUE
I have to be honest, though. When I first saw female runners in skirts on the streets of Kuala Lumpur, I was sceptical. Although I totally supported the idea of looking good while breaking a sweat, I wasn’t fully convinced about the practicality of these skirts.
IN COMFORTABLE FASHION
I liked the fact that I didn’t have to spend a single second thinking about my shorts creeping up. My verdict? The skirt was probably the most comfortable item of clothing I had run in. At the end of the run, I became a skirt-convert.
There will always be a debate on the “seriousness” of those running in skirts, but these skirts are here to stay. For my part, anything that adds fun to my
running activities works for me.
