I finally, finally found my running shorts! I've tried half a dozen pairs in all price ranges this season and I finally found a pair that feel comfortable, wick well and most importantly, don't ride up.

I wore these for the first time on Saturday on a tough 9 mile interval course that had lots of uphill and back woods trail and I realized 2 miles into my run that I hadn't once had to pull the legs down out of my crotch, which is what I continuously have to do with my compression shorts.

What remains to be see is how they hold up over time. I can tell that these are going to be my favorite shorts, so I hope they do.

The only complaint, and it's really more of a nitpick, really is that the striping on the legs is kind of unflattering if you carry your weight in your hips as I do. They should swoop out in the opposite direction. But that is such a minor thing, I feel sorta bad even mentioning it.

But really if someone from GoLite is reading this and is looking for ways to improve the shorts, just flip the swoosh around so they make your quads look bigger and your hips look smaller. Thank you!
