Pink shorts

So Jay66UK here's my shorts as promised... in an action shot from tonight's run! There's no getting away from the pinkness that's for sure. So I decided to 'own' it by running so fast my face was matching πŸ€’πŸ€ͺ Actually had a really good run despite the heat tonight. No toxic anything and kept a steady pace nearly to the end. Managed 4.3km in 31 mins.

Happy running everyone 😊

And I see you have the use of the long legs this week now RipcurlRana has finished with them!

Nice shorts for you Saartjie, as long as you feel comfortable wearing them is the main thing, many cycling teams, including the national Italian men's team, wear pink vests as well as pink shorts. The photo makes your legs look longer than they are as you point out.

Well Done saartjie, if we can’t get the legs out in this heat we never will. So well coordinated with the shoes too! πŸ˜Žβ˜€οΈ

Omg this group is changing my life!! I've had body image issues for most of my adult life, I NEVER wear shorts ~ but I'm actually seriously considering buying these.... and wearing them!! - Fabulous450's reply to my post this morning has left an impression on me! I'm beginning not to actually care!! πŸ˜¬πŸ‘Š And your shorts have sold it to me! 😊

Do it! Bare those pins with pride lady! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ I would never go out in pink patterned lycra normally but they were the only running shorts at the shop yesterday...and it's so hot...and I no longer care!

I loooooooooove your shoes! Shorts are great too, but those shoes... 🀀

Haha! I love them too. Bought them in the sale at the Nike store in London last year after a day shopping and they were soooooo comfy just had to have them! They're Nike Air Pegasus 32s. I just loved the pink and blue. Little did I know that the pink would become my thing (or that they would help me finally reach my running goals) πŸ˜‚
