Run Times Short *Block-It Pocket
Perfect Running Short
I bought one pair of these shorts last year because I was looking for something with a good zip pocket for gels for my fall marathon. Now, I own 4 pairs and won't do a long run in anything else. The pocket will fit up to 4 gels. The shorts sit perfect midrise on my waist and don't move at all. They are the perfect length. Wicking. I've worn them for marathons and 50ks and have been comfortable the whole way. If these ever disappear from Lulu's line, I'll be a sad, sad girl.

They are not awful but for me they are too much like the speed short to be a product on their own. I own both pairs and I personally like the speed short better.

buy if you like butt sweat
I bought these shorts at the recommendation of the sales girl at the store because she said how great they were for keeping things dry while running....BUT what she failed to mention was how the block-it pocket actually creates more sweat!! Since the material used for the pocket is water/sweat proof that also means the material is NOT breathable. They are fine to wear while you are working out since you're generally sweating all over but they are not the most comfortable pair of shorts to wear around the house or running errands when you are not working up a sweat.
I decided to keep the shorts just for running but I will not be purchasing another pair of the block-it shorts.

I am a huge fan of the tracker shorts, however due to the lack of color options on those (I have the available ones) I decided to try these instead. I was really disappointed in the liner as it leaves a really undesirable and unattractive "panty line" for those who have larger glutes. If it wasn't for that, these would be a great pair of shorts, but I feel like everyone is looking at my rear in them due to the too tight liner!

Best shorts to workout in!
These are terrific shorts to workout in. I bought these in my usual LLL size 4 and they run TTS. They are very flattering and never have to be adjusted. I wear them doing just about any exercise and they are comfortable and allow me to move freely. The pocket in the back holds my keys when running. I've never had such a comfortable pair of workout shorts! I liked them so much I bought another pair. Great job Lulu!

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.
