Run: Speed Short *Block-It Pocket
Love my shorts, very comfortable and breathable which I like a lot. I usually wear them around the house or around town when I want to be lazy but still look cute. My only complaint is that there are strings hanging off of them. I have yet to wash them yet and have worn them maybe twice in the weeks I purchased them and have no clue as to why there are strings hanging from the waistband. Little bit of a disappointment... ):

THESE SHORTS ARE MY NEW BABIES
I'm kind of small, 5"1, 95 pounds or so, so I'm naturally a size 2. I ran my first 5K race the other day wearing a pair of worn down Nike basketball shorts and then after, I decided I really should go down to lululemon and purchase running shorts (they looked flattering on all the other runners who wear wearing them)
I tried them on, and fell in love with them; they made me look thinner, my legs longer, slightly more athletically built, and ohhh god they were so comfortable. It's like a slip on and you don't even notice. I've worked out moderately the other day with them on and they were really nice, I mean, the fabric really screams quality, I'm definitely wearing these for my next 8K race training and on race day, thank youuu lululemon for the Block-it pocket since at my 5K my phone was LITERALLY drenched in sweat.
Side note: My iPhone 5C fits without a case, but with earphones they don't. My iPod 4 fits snugly, I haven't tried it with earphones but the gel pack pockets in the front are really nice to have and I'm super excited to use these.
Also the reflective color in the back make it that much prettier than all black. The only question I have is, would this be all right to use for dance, or?

Best Shorts EVER
I love these shorts so much! They keep me super cool when I am running and I barely know that they are there! I am a bit petite at 5'3" and 100lbs, but I still can get pretty sweaty when I run and I never realize how sweaty I am until I get home. I would recommend these to anyone. They are a bit short, so if you have longer legs you might want to think about the 2 1/2 inseam. But these shorts have changed my life ;)

Flattering | Breathable
At 5'4" and 120 lbs, these shorts are simply magic.
Out of all the shorts that have accompanied me to gyms and outdoor runs, these take the prize in making my legs look long and slim. My curvy butt and athletic thighs are most grateful, since all the other shorts made me look bigger, shorter, and more muscular with the "balloonish-effect." Even when wearing them for lounge, I received multiple comments from friends/family saying, "Woah! You look like you lost weight!" But between you and me, I think it's just the way these shorts fit (;
I find that a lot of shorts have almost a hint of plastic or tarp feeling to it. However, these shorts definitely feel like quality. It's very thin and smooth, and doesn't feel claustrophobic to your skin when you're sweating out of every pore.
One aspect of these shorts that caught me by surprise when it arrived is the spandex-under layer. While I don't mind that, I know others (like my sister) can't stand it. So just be aware that there is a layer of spandex underneath the shorts (shaped like underwear), and that it isn't just the outer layer you see on online photos.

Great Shorts - Still a little disappointed
Great running shorts, there is no denying that. They fit well and I enjoy running in them. I went a little loose in the sizing department - which I would NOT do if you want to put your phone or anything heavy in the back pocket - they will definitely ride down during a run or hard workout.
My only real complaint - as ridiculous as it may be - is that the Lululemon logo fell off after the second wear/ wash. I'm really not a label snob, but man if you pay $60 for some shorts you kind of want to keep the logo. Sort of a bummer - still great shorts.

Wear these to the gym all the time, they are fabulous. I love how the fabric's very light and stretchy that I can do all kinds of crazy stretches. Don't really use the pocket but it'll probably come in handy one day.

These are great
There is nothing bad to say about these shorts. They are true to size. VERY comfortable. The zippered pocket is the right size. The cut is very flattering. They feel cool and don't chafe. What more could a runner want? I do think they run the tiniest bit big, so if you are between sizes you might want to order the smaller size.

Love these better than regular speed shorts
I love my speed shorts to death, but when these came out, I bought three of them in my speed short size (4). These are now my go-to's for everything - running, cross-training, even just being out and about. The block-it-pocket is not QUITE big enough for my iPhone 5. Big enough for keys/cards but a phone is pushing it.
The wider waistband makes these shorts more visually pleasing than the normal speed shorts and I really like the reflective pocket. Just like with regular speed shorts, lying down can be a bit uncomfortable when the zipper digs into your bottom, but unless you use them for yoga, not a big deal.
Wish they made these in more colors, as usual with great products.

Amazing for Running
I absolutely love these. The pocket is perfect for a house key and some money. They don't bunch up in the crouch like most short while running. Highly recommend these for anyone looking for a running short.
