half marathon in the run:tracker shorts

This letter was written by Elizabeth from our Highland Village lululemon store in Houston, Texas. She has a passion for goal setting, running and sharing why she loves the Run:Tracker Shorts!

Hey design team,

You guys have designed my favourite shorts! The Tracker shorts are the most incredible running shorts and I want to share why:

The waistband is  comfortable and doesn't budge. There is no riding up or down, no distraction of having to adjust my shorts while I'm running.

I love lined shorts and these hold up really well.

I don't like my shorts to be tight on my "athletically built" thighs and these give me room in the leg. There is great for my range of motion while running but also for my self-confidence, plus no chafing for 13.1 miles(which is a half marathon for you non-runners)!

The side pocket was big enough for a couple energy gels, and it's easy to access while running.

When I interviewed for the educator position at lululemon, I said my goal was to run my first half-marathon, and I did it last weekend in the Run:Tracker shorts! They were absolutely perfect for the run! I gush about them to my fellow educators and guests, educating on all these amazing features.

Keep up the awesome work design team,


What are you wearing to finish your 13.1?

It took me a while to get on board with these shorts (I’m a diehard Run:Speed short gal) but after some coaxing, I tried on a pair and Holy Moly (!!!) they are the bomb! I love the loose fit and comfortable waistband. The tracker short surprised and delighted me!

Congrats on your first half marathon!
I’m new-ish to running (just did my first 5k last July) and I ran in my first half on April 17th at the Jersey shore, in my favorite black Run:Speed Shorts!

(I wore a non-lulu long sleeve top. Would have loved to have worn my Run:Swiftly Tech L/S…but I was afraid I’d warm up mid-run and have to take my long sleeve shirt off. Unfortunately the l/s swiftly tech is tighter at the wrists, and I can’t easily take it off over my bulky Garmin forerunner GPS watch).
