So, some of you might remember (from my excited blog entries) that I was part of the Brooks I.D. Team that year. I did get free clothes but was under no requirement to blog about them. I just decided to do because I am in love with their clothes and shoes and wanted to spread the good word.
My last installation of this review series is for my favorite article of clothing – their Epiphany Stretch Short II. I am EXTREMELY hard to please in the short department, and I am also EXTREMELY obsessed with these shorts.
They are perfect:
Short enough that they dont get caught between your legs, but long enough youre not giving a show to the world as youre out for a run.
They have a wide waistband that sits on the lower abdomen, which in my world, should be a running short requirement.
They come in approximately 18 different colors (3 of which are on sale right now) – they can match (or MISMATCH) anything you want! Like the bright green pair of Adrenaline’s I just bought and cannot wait to wear.
When they get wet they aren’t as thin as “regular” running shorts – meaning you don’t have the plastered look.
They fit pretty true to size.
These are my go to running shorts. I currently have 4 pairs – in all different colors – and I will probably end up with more next year.
They also go really well with the matching Epiphany Shirt, if youre looking for one (also my go to shirt).
I just did my annual end of year stock-up: More shoes and more shirts!!! I like to do it at the end of the year because then it is almost like Christmas again when they show up!
And since this is a Brooks focused post…here is an oldie but goodie video of us at the New England Ragnar Relay…Team 5 Guys 1 Girl & 140 Characters by @BrooksRunning
We did Ragnar as an Ultra team (6 people instead of 12)…we had met for the first time AT THE RACE, and we had way. too. much. fun!
