Hey Shorty, It’s Your Birthday…

The weather has gotten warmer and that can only mean one thing for ALL runners…My birthday. NO! New running shorts, of course!

Maybe your old shorts are too big (yay!) or too small (oh no! but that’s okay). Maybe the elastic has gotten stretched out or cracked over time. Maybe they’ve gotten rips or tears from shiggy trails. Maybe you need more because you only have 1 pair and let’s face it, your significant other is tired of washing them every other night. Or maybe you just want some new shorts in some stylish new colors!

I have a few commandments for my running shorts:

  1. Thou shalt have at least 1 pocket, even if the pocket is so small and narrow one could not fit a stick of Orbitz gum in it, let alone a single car key.
  2. Thou shalt please me greatly by having a larger, zippered pocket(s) that one can fit a key, ID, & perhaps some $$$ without falling out.
  3. Thou inseam shalt not be too short, likest a 1960’s mens basketball player or a moderne-day girls volleyball player (Note: Husbands may disagree with wives on that last one, but they aren’t the ones wearing them).
  4. Nor shall thine inseam be too long, likest a moderne-day basketball player, reaching past one’s knees.

Now I’ve just got to find some shorts that fit all these commandments…

PS: Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes!!!
