trail blazing



Hitting the trails running is easy to do in Run:Speed Shorts.  On the treadmill, under the sun, and in the rain, anytime is a good time for a hike.

I had been going back and forth about getting the speed shorts until I saw this photoset on Flickr! It’s great seeing them on a real person. Unfortunately I ordered a size up, thinking that I would want them longer. Nuh-uh, I’d rather have them fitted and cute. One size up was way too baggy. But I’m totally stoked to get them exchanged! Can’t wait!

It looks so beautiful there! You’ve inspired me to go find some nice trails to run on around here instead of my same old concrete route!
