I love Lululemon's 2 way stretch products, which is why I was so excited when they finally put out some LONGER INSEAM 2 way stretch shorts....much to my disappointment the shorts arrived (right color/length) but they were the 4 way stretch. I may be in the minority, but I do not like 4 way stretch AT ALL. I called customer care, they told me I definitely ordered the 2 way stretch on line but that it may not even come in a 2 way stretch...Will return the shorts and likely begin looking at other brands which I hate to do bc I love the lululemon products that I have...but the only 2 way stretch that they seem to make now have a ruched waist band that is not very comfortable.

I am 5'9 and though I love speeds, they are too short for me. Turbos were great but I have always dreamed of a longer speed short that comes in all the same colors as speeds. I'm hoping that is what is going on here! The length is great, fine in squats, and super comfortable. Really happy with these. Wouldn't mind if they were even 1/2 to 1 inch longer. Great shorts!
Please make in camo!!!!

I love these shorts, great length, good feel, flattering fit. I was always worried about squatting in the Speed Shorts due to their length, and there are no issues with these. I Crossfit and am a petite 5'1", 120lbs, with an athletic build and fuller booty. Love love love the shorts.

In LOVE with these shorts!!
I have always said if they make the speed shorts 2 inches longer I would buy them in every color - BAM, enter the Run Times Shorts!! I love the black and white print! Bought those as my first in this style and will be buying more!!
I have about 12 pairs of Lulu shorts, mostly in the Groovy Run shorts and the Trackers, but as I've lost weight and toned more those were too loose and flowy, so these new shorts have a bit more narrow hip and thigh opening and that is working for me better now!!
Please don't stop making this style!! For every print you make the Speed Shorts, please make the Run Times too!! I love a fun printed short. We have played it safe with the all black workout clothes for too long, the fun prints, plaids and colors are what we all want!!

I absolutely love these shorts! They are so comfortable and are the perfect length. I am 5'7" 130lbs and a size 6 fit great. These are definitely my new favorite shorts. Please make more colors!!

Bought these shorts to run in and I absolutely love them. They are the perfect length for girls with longer legs, as many lulu shorts are scandalously short on me. I feel they are TTS - I am 5'7'' 135 and the 6 was just right. REALLY wish they came in more color options, as I would love to buy more!

I am very pleased with these shorts. They are a very flattering design for those who prefer shorts longer than the speed shorts. I am 36 years old, 5'6" tall, 115 lbs, and I took a size 4 which is TTS for me for all Lululemon apparel.

Loved the Groovy Run Shorts? You'll love these too
It looks like the old Groovy Run Shorts have been discontinued, however I am in absolute love with these Run Time Shorts! It fits exactly the same as the Groovy Run - if not actually better! I have the black and white with the leaf pattern, size 6 (5'7, 140 pounds), and it is a very flattering cut on me, no muffin top and sits flat. I wore it on a 13K run today, no chafing and completely comfortable. I've also worn them to a CrossFit work out and was able to squat and perform all sorts of movements comfortably. I'm more of the self conscious kind of girl when wearing shorts, I find the length to be fantastic. The speed short for me is too short, so this is a great alternative. Good bum coverage too when squatting!
I'm very very pleased with this short, and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a trusty companion short! I certainly look forward to buying another pair or two when some different colours come out.

cute modern print shorts
I have a pair of shorts from Lulu that I picked up about three years ago, and recently decided I needed another since the first pair has held up so well. I was delighted to find this awesome print in the store! They are cute, fit well, have convenient pockets- a win win win win.
