Affordable Running Shorts

September 14, 2022

HI! I’m Molly.

Here to encourage you on your own bold pursuit of intentional living as I live out my own. I’m passionate about running, spending time doing what I love and cheering others on to approach running with joy.

Sharing a small roundup of affordable running shorts!

I’ve mentioned this before, but my wardrobe of running outfits is actually fairly small. Until this year, 80% of what I ran in were pieces I bought back in college or pieces I was gifted for Christmas or my birthday. I swear I've done laundry WAY more this training cycle and have bought more simply out of necessity, but also some because I want to try pieces so I can share them with y’all in case they’re worth purchasing! And of course, I am an Outdoor Voices ambassador and every now and then, they gift me a few pieces. While it’s been so much fun adding great pieces to my wardrobe, I can’t go on a shopping spree and test them all for y’all, however, I can share what I’m seeing others love!!

Many of y’all have asked me to share more affordable running shorts options and below is a roundup of shorts I wear that I love + are more affordable than the Outdoor Voices shorts I most often wear, shorts you all have told me you really like or shorts I’ve seen at great price points online with good reviews. While I haven’t tried all these shorts on myself, they do all fall into one of those three categories.

I hope this is helpful for y'all!
