For those of you that might have missed it, the following was my recent contribution to the Skirt Sports Blog (affiliate link). I was honored to have been asked to write a post about my first skirt.
When I first started running several years ago, you never saw women running in skirts. So when one of my early running partner showed up for some of our runs wearing a running skirt, I didn’t know what to think. Then I realized how many people were asking her about her skirts and where she got them.
I will admit, my first skirt was from one of those “big name” athletic apparel companies. I like it, I ran almost all my races in it. Until I lost some weight and it didn’t fit right. After running the Brewers Mini Marathon in Milwaukee WI one warm humid August afternoon a few years ago, I could hardly walk as I had the works case of chafing ever! The worst part? I had to drive 2 hours home in this same skirt.
The next day I went shopping for a new running skirt. I needed one that fit.
But I wasn’t just looking for one that fit right, I was looking for one that would match my new Half Fanatics top that I had ordered. It had to be just the right shade of blue! I remembered the company that Wendy had always talked about and checked out Skirt Sports. There on the website was a skirt that looked like it would be a perfect match!
And it was on sale!
Less than a week later it was in my mailbox!
I loved the color and I loved the fit! and then I discovered just how useful all the pockets were not only could I easily carry my phone, but I also had another pocket to carry fuel, or keys, or money or…. you name it, I had a place to put it!
Once again, there was not worry about chafing, it covered everything perfectly and I was in love.
But, I actually didn’t order another skirt for about a year or so… I wasn’t completely sold on wearing a running skirt.
Then I started looking for costumes for a Disney race. At that time, I didn’t find a skirt that would work with what I wanted for that race, but I fell in love with so many of the other patterns and designs that skirt sports had, I had to order a few more.
I was addicted! Since then I have slowly been converting all of my running gear to Skirt Sports! In the meantime, my love for this company and their product grew, hence why I jumped at the chance at joining their team of Brand Ambassadors! It’s a superior product by a phenomenal company that supports, encourages, motivates and empowers women to get out there and be their best! Best part? I am able to share my discount with you! CHD20 will save you 20% on your order of regular priced merchandise!
And it’s not just the skirts! Their tank, sports bras and shirts are the most comfortable clothes in my closet! I life in my Skirt Sports gear any time I have the chance! In fact my friends are so used to seeing my in my skirts that when I showed up at the ballpark in a pair of carpi’s, one of the girls made the comment that I wasn’t wearing a skirt But it was my new favorite Skirt Sport Redemption Carpi’s!
When I pack for vacation, I generally only pack Skirt Sports and yes, I would wear them daily if I could… in fact I usually do wear them almost daily! oh yeah…. Shhh Don’t tell my boss… some of the skirts I wear to work are actually from Skirt Sport! Yup I wear my my running skirts to the office and no one knows the difference!
Yes, my name is Amy and I am a Skirt Sports junkie… and I am not ashamed of it!
In fact I am proud of it! 🙂
