A while ago I was asked if I wanted to try out something from the Go Girl Sport catalog. I looked at their offerings and was impressed with their philosophy and their logo intrigued me… it’s a trademarked symbol of a flower with the word “go” in the center. One of the sayings they featured on the site was “Dare to go Girl!” And while the phrase “You Go Girl!” is kind of cliche’…. it’s also awesome and I don’t care if it’s a little overused because it’s an empowering phrase!
I chose to try out the tuxedo skort… I keep wanting to be a skirt runner, which is odd because in reality… I’m not a skirt person. But for some reason I keep seeing women in running skirts and think they look way cute and stylish… and I want to be “that woman”.
The skirt arrived and it is well-made and really cute. It has the Go Girl Sport logo on the back, but not in an obnoxious way (like that whole Victoria’s Secret pink collection places words across the butt of pants). The white stripes on the front are a mesh material that would allow air to flow through for good ventilation.
I tried it on and felt the waist was a little looser than I’d like, but overall the fit was good. And I even thought I looked kind of cute in it… even if it did inspire me to strike a cheerleader-esque pose.
But when I went for a run in it, I had the same problem that I always do in running skirts… the shorts ride up. And I don’t like that feeling at all!
I’m willing to give the skirt another shot, but there is no way I will be running with other people when I do, I don’t want to deal with the public embarrassment of constantly pulling my shorts down in front of others.
But it’s not a total bummer… I also got a necklace form them with their logo on it. And I’ve worn it A LOT. And I get complimented on it every time I do. I’ve come to realize that I don’t pick my accessories on “how trendy is this?” but more on “does this have a meaning for me?” And each time I put that necklace on it’s like a simple little talisman to inspire me for the day.
These products were provided to me from the Go Girl Sport company for review on my blog. The opinions expressed are my own.
I’ve been running in skorts for awhile now and it really depends on the brand. I have a tennis skort that rides up bad, but it’s cute so I just use a lot of Body Glide and pray for the best. Champion or is it C9 has some good ones and I haven’t had much problem with those riding up. Keep trying. I really like them. PLUS when I run races, I pin my bib on the skort and I don’t have to mess with my arms hitting it like I do when it’s on my shirt… very handy. 🙂
Thanks for your comments the other day. *hugs*
I’d never thought of the benefit of having the skirt area for pinning a bib # on! Wow… that’s smart!
That necklace is really pretty! I’m the same way with jewelry, I don’t wear much but I like for what I do wear to have meaning to me. I’m also the same way with running skirts! I love the way they look and I really want to wear one, but so far I haven’t been able to find one where the shorts don’t ride up 😦
Maybe I should try a C9 one, like Moe suggests. At least that way if I don’t like it it wasn’t too expensive!
I do like that necklace, and most especially, the empowerment that comes with that phrase. (And yes, you go girl is one of my favorite phrases, too, just like “girl power!”) Actually that skort is pretty damn flattering, I will check out their website and see how expensive they are. What size do you think I should get? I think you and I are about the same size – I’m 5 and 1/4 inch, 110 pounds? Usually I get XSs or Smalls for running clothes.

Have you ever tried lululemon skirts? their shorts do not ride up. I liked the go girl skort but nothing I have tried even compares to lululemon ones. they do no ride up!
I haven’t tried it. Lululemon is $$$ and I was scared to spend that much on a running skirt when I haven’t had the best luck with skirts!

[…] Dare to Go, Girl! Necklace I like this necklace and I liked the message behind it… jewelry that has a special message with it is more interesting to me than picking out something just because it’s trendy. Of course, you’re always welcome to pick things using both methods! [My Review] […]
