Brrrr. Dont’ worry. It’s already too cold (for me) on the east coast to wear running shorts. But, I have taken up running. Well, I’ve been three times in the last week. Considering I despise running with every fiber of my being (second only to hiking), this counts as ‘taken up running’ for me. Why am I running? Because mid-30s spread isn’t pretty. It’s super efficient. I love the idea of running. And, it’s kind of the easiest form of exercise there is, no? I know I should find exercise I love, but those all cost money (ballet, swimming, Bikram) and this is kind of… free.
I’ve noticed when I run that, I um, sweat — everywhere. I’ve been to the Under Armour headquarters and I thought it was so funny when I saw they made underwear. It seemed like a great way to gouge people. $19 for shorts that I won’t even look cute in! Think sausage legs with a jelly roll on top. But, now I know why moisture wicking shorts exist.
I’ve isolated a pattern from Patrones. Something I’ve made before as a swim bottom. But, I think with a few small alterations, they will be good exercise base layers.
