Run Times Short *Block-It Pocket
Love the color!
These photos don't do it justice-- the color is fantastic and perfect for summer! I go between a size 6 and 8 with lulu and opted for the 8's for a more comfortable fit around my thighs (crossfitter and runner). I haven't gone for a run yet but I can already tell they won't ride up nearly as much as others.

These fit a lot like the speed short (which I also love) but, they are just a bit longer.

In general, I really love the run times shorts. They remind me of the speed short but with more coverage, which can be really nice for crossfit!
I was disappointed in the size of the "block it" pocket in these shorts. It is really quite small. And since the block it fabric is inflexible, it actually seems to hold less than the normal run times pocket does.
The description says "Block-It-Pocket? technology helps protect our phone from serious sweat." I have not tried the black pair on, but the coral pair would not fit my iphone 6 (which yes, i know is absurdly large, but most smart phones are not the size of a flip phone).
For $4 dollars more, it really doesn't provide anything extra since I can't fit anything in that pocket that would need to be "blocked".
All that said, I am still keeping the shorts because I love the color and the contrast with the gray waistband. I hope Lululemon will come up with some new innovative ways for running with an iphone 6. I would love to leave my spibelt at home!
As for sizing, these fit TTS for me. I wear a 6 in speed shorts and take the same size in these shorts.

Not the best quality
But I bought these shorts because of the amazing fit!
I always wash my lulu clothes according to instructions. First time this has happened, and it is pretty disappointing especially looking back at how much I spent. After washing these shorts about twice, I noticed that the little reflective logo was beginning to look a bit dull and faded. After several washes, the logo on the leg has pretty much completely faded! Haven't bothered wearing them anymore, because of how the reflective logo looks..

Love these shorts!
I have been looking for a good pair of running shorts that do not ride up when I run. I have big legs, so when the shorts ride up, my legs rub together. I usually run in capris because of this, but I hate how hot I get when I wear capris. I bought one pair to try them out. When I do wear shorts, it usually starts to ride up 15 minutes into my workout. I ran three miles with no problem. Not once did the shorts ride up. I am very pleased with my purchase. I will be buying more in the future.

I got these shorts a while ago mainly for wearing while taking my dog on walks and to the beach. I normally run in crops because I hate the feeling of shorts riding up because my thighs rub together. Anyway, I wore them Tuesday night on a 5mi run because I hadn't done laundry and my crops were all dirty. Thank goodness I have body glide in my running bag, the shorts rode up, but not as much as I thought they would. I may run in them again, but for a shorter distance. Overall, they're a great, comfortable pair of shorts! I appreciate that lulu makes longer inseams for those of us who prefer a little more coverage.

My phone stayed dry in a downpour during Boston!
I wore the Run Times for Boston, which was about 35 degrees and raining the entire time. Kept my phone in the back pocket and it stayed dry through the whole race! On top of that, the shorts didn't ride up despite being soaked and felt comfortable the whole time.

LOVE these shorts
When I looked at these, I was kind of worried about how I would like them. I am a long distance runner and I have muscular thighs, so I was worried that either they would ride up majorly or my thighs would be cuffed raw. Never had a huge issue with riding up, sure every once in a while I have to pull the leg down a bit, but hardly anything I have an issue with. They quickly became my favourite running bottoms (being canadian, I can't always wear them due to weather... it's depressing really, pants kind of suck lol).
I like the length, I LOVE the liner, they beat real underwear any day. Once I start running, I don't notice them at all. The only dislike I have is the block it pocket, it sort of impeded the shorts ability to wick sweat in that area... so it got uncomfortable at times, especially when wearing a hydration wear belt or something... bought another pair, just don't have the block it pocket.
A note: These are the perfect shorts for wearing in hot weather or wearing to the beach, they are so stretchy and light, you hardly notice them, but they cover you up for modesty and sun protection,

These shorts are very soft and so comfortable. They don't ride up and feel like you're wearing nothing. The length is a little longer which I appreciate. I already want to buy another pair! Fit tts, I wear a 6 in all lulu bottoms (5'5 130lbs) and these fit wonderful.

Fit=Amazing, Quality= Disappointing
I have loved Lululemon for a long time, and I fell in love with the fit of these shorts, but similar to a few other reviews, the back started to pill very quickly.
I always wash according to lulu's instructions and these just haven't help up well. The fit is great, but the quality is very disappointing, especially at the price tag. I can hardly even wear them (after just a few wears) due to the horrible pilling. It is not a good look, and of course, I can't return them.
