I am so proud and excited to have been chosen as one of the 2016 Skirtsports ambassadors. Seriously, I have been acting as an unofficial ambassador for them for years — I can’t begin to tell you the number of times I’ve gotten “cute skirt” in training, in races, and shouted out “Skirtsports”!
Clothes for real women
From the Skirtsports Website:
We pride ourselves on making products that fit real women’s bodies
Of course all companies say that; Skirtsports really means it.
I am a curvy girl. I am vertically challenged. And I am not reed thin. Let’s just say I don’t have a thigh gap. When I started running I tried running skirts from several well known brands — they always rode up and/or gave me a wedgie.
And then I discovered Skirtsports: Hallelujah! They don’t ride up! And they have pockets on the attached shorties. Pockets large enough so I can stash a cell phone and my ipod and some fuel.
And I am all about the pockets!
But Skirtsports is about so much more than just running/workout clothes.
Inspiring women to move
Running ought to be simple and inexpensive, but the truth is not so much.
That’s where Skirtsports’ Kickstart program comes in. They help women who probably would never be able to start running through mentors, coaching, tips, and more.
But wait, there’s more!
Maybe you’ve seen the #REALwomenmove hashtag? For every 5000 of these hashtags, a real woman who might not have the opportunities so many of us take for granted gets an outfit and a free entry into a race.
Sharing Skirtsports with you
I hope by now you’re inspired by the Skirtsports’ message, just as I am. And maybe ready to take the plunge and try out a running skirt. They’re like potato chips — you can’t own just one!

All the outfits shown here? They were bought with my own money. Before I became a Skirtsports ambassador. They are not inexpensive, but they’re worth every penny and they have awesome sales. Now that I’m an ambassador, yes, I get a discount.
But I promise you: I’d still be buying Skirtsports if I hadn’t made the cut.
