It’s no secret that I have an obsession with Nike Tempo Track Shorts. I do have a few pair in my possession.
I have always been afraid to try any other shorts since I have developed this obsession, because well, I have too many pairs to love anything else more.
Well all that changed last week.
Being a co-captain of team lemon run club is awesome, but I do have to go into the store every single week and drool over all their amazing clothes. I have been scoping out all their new run shorts recently and was invited to come into the store to try on all their new pairs! I was very excited and immediately went to the store to test them all out.
I have 2 pairs of the Groovy Run short, which they aren’t making anymore, that I liked because they were longer. The popular Speed Short was just a little too short for me.
I tried on 3 pairs:
- Run: The Fastest Short – longest running short, super light fabric, no back pocket, sized down*.
- Turbo Run Short – combo of Groovy Run and Speed Short, fit similar to Groovy Run, but flipped out on the sides a little strange on me. Light fabric and pockets. Same size*.
- Run: Willpower Short – perfect length, super light fabric, pockets, sized down*
*Size note: I am comparing the sizes to what I wear in the Groovy Run shorts (which is a size bigger than I wear in their tights). I did always feel that I was between sizes in Groovy Run, but went with the bigger size, whereas the Willpower and Fastest, I went with the smaller size.
The Willpower Shorts felt the best, so I left the store with them, thanks to lululemon!
You never know with shorts though until you try them out on a run. Thursday morning I took them out for their first run and it was love at first step. The shorts are so light and comfortable, don’t ride at all, have a mesh liner/underwear, have the amazing lulu back and gel pockets. There was something about them that was amazing and I immediately publicly declared my love for them… and you know that’s a big deal.
Sunday I did my long, warm run in them and still felt the same way. You know when something just makes you feel good when you are wearing it? That’s these shorts for me.
So I think it’s official to say I have a new favorite running short.
**Just FYI, I had this post written before the whole Ambassador deal from Tuesday. I will definitely talk more about that very soon since lots of people were wondering what it’s all about. I am so excited to be part of a brand I truly believe in and love.
***One pair (I loved them so much a second pair was purchased) of these shorts were given to me at no cost in exchange for my time and involvement with the lululemon run club and as part of their research and development program. I was not asked to review them on the blog, but really wanted to because I love them that much! As always these opinions are my own.
What are your favorite running shorts? Have you tried any of lululemon ones?
