I Quit...

No, I don't quit running. I quit compression shorts with no grippy things at the leg openings.

I don't know how this slipped past me. Maybe it's because I've pretty much been wearing my tri shorts for all my training runs. Maybe my shorts are too small (or too big) but the past few runs chub rub has returned with a vengeance. I did forget my body glide once. That cut my 6 miles to 4 real fast. My 7 miler on Sunday saw me slather the lube on like no tomorrow. The run wasn't uncomfortable, but I do now have chub rash. It's really not pretty.

So I'm looking for pants and tights (read anything capri length as it ends up wearing like full length pants on me). I'm probably going to get some longer, almost knee length shorts. I'm open to suggestions. I might have to ditch the skirts/skorts completely. Especially the Nike ones. They like short shorts...

I love my Nike running tights capris. The inseam on them suck. I have heard Brooks running tights are the bomb for us height challenged peeps.

The tri shorts grippy is always a nightmare. I love my DeSoto tri shorts different material like grip that never rides up yet comfortable.

I'm the same way with Capris (they're almost full length on me), but I have some C9s that I really like that come from Target (of all places). They're called Knee Tights. They also have a small zippered pocket in the back...AND they're only $22!
