Guide Review - MarathonGirl Ultra Running Skirt

I was never a big fan of running skirts until I tried SkirtSports' Marathon Girl Ultra running skirt. Now I'm officially a convert. This running skirt is more comfortable than most running shorts I own and, let's face it, it's so darn cute. I felt fun and confident while running in it. It's perfect for women who often find themselves heading out to do errands immediately after their runs or workouts.

The built-in "Spankies" underneath the skirt are made from with a wicking nylon liner, which really stays put, so you don't feel the need to constantly tug and readjust the skirt.

The skirt is practical, too: It has a little pocket in the back, near the waist, to carry money, keys, two gels, or even a cell phone. I liked this skirt so much I found other uses for it beyond running. I discovered that it's a perfect bathing suit cover-up to wear at the pool or beach.

The only real downside is that the color selection is limited. I would love it if it came in more of a variety of hues so that I could mix and match with more of my running tops.
