Go Girl Sport Running Skirt Review and Giveaway

 Go Sports Wear was founded by two active women (love it).  They bill it as "the athletic brand for women who dare to be different".  (love that too)  I got into running skirts last year.  Before that I had always snubbed them.  One day I bought one at Target and fell in love.  I finally got brave enough to wear it to a race at the last race I did of 2010.  I loved it. I couldn't wait to race again and to get more skirts.  So my natural pick from Go Sports was their skirt!  I picked the jade color because I want more color in my running attire.  My first though when I pulled it out was "I love the jade color"  The colored part on the skirt is mesh and underneath are little shorts.

I haven't run in it yet because I am having some shin pain  :(can you guess which one hurts?)   but I did take it for a test drive on my elliptical and so far we are best friends.   There is one pocket in the front for a key or gels or chapstick. 

It is shorter than I thought it was going to be, but I am 5'8" so it won't be so short on a shorter person.   I think the length is no shorter than most running shorts though.  Personally I think it is a great length for racing



 My main goal here is to show off the little logo on the back of the skirt, because I think it is really cute! I love the mesh inserts on the skirt and I think the design is fun and different from others that I have seen.  That is a major bonus with me.  I don't like to race in the same thing as everyone else.  I guess I like to stand out  :)

 I also did some lunges and squats in the skirt to make sure me and the little shorts were really going to get along.  We still do! My cat Tip didn't care so much about that.  He is begging for some food here.  The raccoons got into the shed and ate all the cat food.  Lucky for the Tipster I had some in the house too.  He doesn't like to miss a meal.
 This is me contemplating running in the skirt.  I was good and came inside to write this review instead and ice my leg a little more.   I have been keeping my running shoes off, so I am not tempted to run.  I am determined to rest it some more. 
 Here is what they have to say about the skirt now that you have heard my little bit
Don't save this skirt for a black tie event! The Tuxedo Skort is great for racing, hiking or kickin' it at the gym - and destined to be a staple in your athletic wear wardrobe. This flattering design features a low rise waistline with a wide band to keep things smooth. Front and back mesh panels will keep you cool and pique the interest of those around you. Attached 3" inseam boy short has offset seams, sewn outward to avoid chafing.
