Three Things Thursday

1.  The weather this week has been divine.  My attitude really needed this weather.  I was starting to get cranky pants every time I went for a run and was cold for the first mile or two.  I also finally tried out the Bibbity Running Skirt I bought before Christmas.  Bibbity skirts like RunningSkirts also have built in undies.  I was a little apprehensive about trying them because I did not have a good experience with Runningskirts. 

With RunningSkirts, the suggested size for my measurements was slightly small around the hips, perfect in the waist and the undies crawled up my butt while the skirt rode up while running. While it might make for fun viewing for my husband I just couldn't do it. I'd post a picture but this is not THAT kind of blog.

The next size up was too big around the waist, fit good around the hips, and the underwear still felt like they were trying to crawl up my butt. I also felt like there was an obvious underwear line.  :(   I got a medium in the Bibbity Skirts and it fits fabulous.  Maybe a little big in the waist, but the undies are perfect.  AND no panty line from the built in undies.  Priceless.

I am really not trying to show you my belly  here, just the waist band, and there are pockets on the sides that my phone will not bounce out of while running and gels fit in there nicely also. Sorry for the crazy hair, it was really windy out.
Okay maybe if you really stare you can see the underwear lines, but they were really obvious in the other skirt on me. ..and now you know I have a tattoo.

 and when I run my butt does not hang out.  GREAT!  I tried to get a better action shot, but the wind kept blowing my camera over.
I checked out their FB page today and ...they are having a huge clearance sale right now.  All skirts are marked down to 19.95.  Hello, order me another one! Some sizes and colors are sold out but the majority are still available. I was going to order the all black, but it is sold out :(  I think I will go with the black and white, kind of boring but it will match a lot of things.

and in case you were curious about the pockets.

2. The 10 day weather forecast looks really AWESOME!  I have a Shamrock Run 5k on Sunday that I am super excited about.  The weather should be pretty good for it.

Could the weather be any more perfect than this?  I just hope this doesn't mean we are going to have a hotter than ever summer, especially since I am running a MARATHON in JULY.

3. I also had this fun package waiting for me when I got home from my run today.  I won it in a giveaway over at Running Like a Girl

and inside..


  1. "It might make for fun viewing for my husband"... hahah! My husband would probably look forward to the same thing, nevermind that I'm uncomfortable!

    Glad you guys are getting nice weather, too! It's been gorgeous here in MI.

  2. never heard of those skirt before..I have a running skirt and I dont love it. I would probably not race in it. It needs a drawstring! I have a MED and it is way too big at the moves and it is annoying.

    Do these have one?

  3. Not big on the whole running skirt fad. I think the built in underwear would annoy the crap out of me if it was riding up my rear while running, plus I already wear as little cloning as possible while I think peeps would start to get the wrong idea if I was bearing stomach and bum!

    We are having some crazy late winter weather here this week too. Today the temps reached nearly 80 and when I stepped out the door at noon for my workout I nearly died.

  4. what a fun package! I'm so jealous. That skirt looks super cute and comfy!

  5. Always a great day when you get something fun in the mail! I've never heard of those running skirts. I have yet to find one I absolutely love so maybe I'll try this one.

  6. Cute skirt. That DOES look like a great week of weather coming up ...nice! And that giveaway pkg looks great too... would love some more Shot Bloks.

  7. yay for getting stuff in the mail!!

  8. Not THAT kind of a blog! lmao Love it.

  9. Very cute skirt! I haven't gotten into the whole running skirt thing. I always feel like I look like a complete idiot in them. I have a sparkle skirt and that is about it. I have funny shaped body that I think shorts are made for.

  10. I love my Bibbity skirt too. I have the pink and black one. Isn't it great to have weather like this in March??? Getting spoiled! I have only done two treadmill runs all winter!

  11. oh that skirt is super cute! I was just thinking of heading to lemon and checking out a new skirt! I will have to go to the website and check it out!

    awesome on the prize you won, you are a prize winning girl!

  12. I had an Adidas running skirt and the shorts part of it would rub between my tree trunk legs and then ride up. I haven't gone all out for another skirt since but I think I would like to give it another try!

  13. The talk of the weather being fabulous everywhere is killing me! I'm about to say goodbye to Washington permanently - it's all rain, rain, freezing rain, hail, more rain, and a snow/rain mix. I need the sun in my life!!

    So happy that your package arrived. It's all super classy with the tape & recycled hand warmer box. ;-)

  14. ohh I like that skirt! Really cute off to check it out.
    Love the box of stuff. :)

  15. I like that skirt! Going to check it out!

  16. That is some nice weather. We have been having great weather too and it is just making me itch for summer, but like you I hope it isn't too hot.

    Cute skirt! I can't pull those off but I love the way they look on everyone else.

  17. Fun skirt! At first I wasn't a huge fan of them, but I somewhat recently got one as a gift and I must say, my mind is definitely changing. I already kind of want another one.

  18. I love getting packages in the mail. Especially one filled with yummy goodies.
    Finally a skirt that doesn't show the booty and holds a phone. Awesome!
    Good luck on your race! Kick some booty!


Because I love hearing from you all!
