Let’s face it – when it comes to choosing what to wear while running, you have lots of different options… shorts, leggings, even skirts. Although summer is officially coming to a close, we are lucky enough to live in Southern California where we are able to rock our favorite women’s running shorts year-round. If you aren’t fortunate enough to live somewhere with a consistent summer climate, don’t worry, running shorts are the perfect attire to wear on the treadmill when the conditions are less than ideal outside.
Finding the perfect pair of women’s running shorts can be hard, but we are here to help! While having a go-to pair of black shorts is great (and often a necessity), we prefer to mix it up and add some fun into our wardrobe – and shorts are a perfect place to start. We have two favorite styles of running shorts – our Fun Run Elastic Waist Running Shorts and our 2-in-1 Pocket Running Shorts – and are sure you will love them once you give them a try!
Why We Love our Fun Run Shorts
* Sparkle Athletic fun run shorts are made with a lightweight, woven, four-way stretch, sweat-wicking fabric. These are the perfect pair of relaxed-fit shorts to wear for whatever type of run you have planned. You’ll be comfortable whether you’re running fast, running for fun or just running errands around town. The wide elastic waistband is super comfortable and won’t dig into your skin.
* There is a built-in, lightweight brief liner made from wicking, anti-microbial fabric. The lining in our running shorts offers some support while also helps to prevent chafing because an additional pair of underwear is not required.
* Our fun run shorts also contain a small interior back pocket at the waistband, which is perfect for stashing essentials. This is a great place to hold a key, lip balm, running fuel or even a few dollars for your post-run sweet treat.
* We believe running is more enjoyable when you’re having fun. So, all of our products are designed to inspire athletes to “put the fun back in their run.” It’s hard not to smile when you’re rocking colorful, attractive running apparel. Our geometric, pineapple or feather designs match just about everything and will be the perfect addition to any running outfit you put on.
Why We Love Our 2-in-1 Women’s Running Shorts
* Sparkle Athletic 2-in-1 shorts offer a hidden spandex undershort and a loose woven layer on top. These shorts provide additional coverage and support for women who are looking for both. The undershort fits snug to the body, hugging all the right spots, without being too tight.
* The mid-rise spandex waistband is wide and stretchy, allowing for a smooth and secure fit. Because we know how important the perfect fit is, these shorts also feature a drawstring so you can be sure to get the flawless fit every time you wear them.
* Our 2-in-1 shorts feature THREE pockets – two side pockets on the breathable spandex undershorts as well as a back waist zipper pocket. The two side pockets are large enough to hold your phone (and secure enough so it won’t escape while getting your miles in) and the back pocket is perfect for a key, lip balm, running fuel or even a few dollars for a post-run treat.

So, all of our products are designed to inspire athletes to “put the fun back in their run.” It’s hard not to smile when you’re rocking colorful, attractive running apparel. Our unicorns and rainbows, cats, red and white polka dots, mini donuts and sharks designs in the 2-in-1 shorts match just about everything and will be the perfect addition to any running outfit you put on.
There you have it – just a few of the reasons why our women’s running shorts are our favorite (and will be yours too). Trust us when we say, this is only the tip of the the iceberg. We didn’t even talk about how our shorts are also awesome for playing tennis, wearing to the gym, playing at the park with your kids, riding a bike and more.
