Run Times Short *4-way Stretch
As a turbo short fan, I was disappointed when they were replaced by the return of the groovy and tracker. I like speeds but not for running in, as I find the extra fabric between my thighs leads to chaffing. Welcome the run times!!!! Perfect combination of the cut of the speed with a little extra length like the turbo. Luckily scored my first pair on md so as to test the waters frugally, but price doesn't matter now that I know how much I like them. And lets be honest, you can't beat 4-way stretch, most flattering, flexible material there is. Time to start a new love affair!

I love these shorts. I'm a bit older (haha) so I like more coverage. These are perfect. Not too long, not too short. I just wished they came in more colors and patterns. I like them baggie so 8 is perfect for me. (5'2", 135, 34DD)

Long speed shorts
These are basically speed shorts with an extra couple inches of length tacked on. This is fantastic, because I am tall (5'9"), and have very long legs. I love speed shorts, and wear them all the time, but sometimes they're inappropriately short.

More solid colors! Navy!
Will you all make these shorts in more solid colors please! Specifically in navy!! I have so many friends that would buy more of them in the solid colors- some of my friends have multiple pairs in black because they really like the short but aren't a fan of most of the prints/patterns they're offered in.

Am I wearing anything?
Love these shorts. They are absolutely lightweight; the fabric is thin yet offers fantastic coverage. The 4-way stretch just makes this the perfect pair of shorts that moves with you!
For sizing, I stayed tts. For ref, I'm almost 5'6, around 123lbs. I'm a size 4 in all shorts and crops. I do have muscular legs so the leg opening was a tad smaller (which is why I like the tracker shorts) but these are definitely stretchy so it's not uncomfortable (just don't get the nice loose airy look but no big deal!) Also, I'm finding them to stretch out a bit after a while so if you have muscular legs, don't worry. I wouldn't recommend sizing up because the waistband will be too loose.

cured my shorts phobia!
I was very anti shorts for crossfit since I didn't want my goods showing every time I squatted. Also, being 5'7" with muscular thighs isn't always a good look in shorts that end up looking pretty short given my height. But I thought I would give these shorts a try and I have been converted. They are short on me, but they aren't baggy so I can feel them staying put, and they are really lightweight. I like the width of the waist band, it keeps me all held in and I don't feel like I'll have to constantly tug at them to stay on or in place.

Love these shorts! I'm 5'4, #120, I wear them in size 4. I like the little bit of extra cover (even though I'm not tall), my upper legs are a bit bulky. They're super cute! And oh so comfortable. Like other reviewers said, the first time I put them on in the dressing room, it was like wearing nothing, super comfy and soft. I train for and run marathons, and these don't give me any problems. I do use some BodyGlide though, on the upper thighs, just to be sure. I have 3 of these shorts now. Please please please make them in more colors and prints, like the Run Speed shorts!

Love the length but they ride up when I run :(
I am a huge fan of the speed shorts but when I tried on the Run Times shorts I fell in love with them! It seems like there is a good selection of patterns and the 4 way stretch is just as comfy as the Speed Shorts. They fit just like the Speed Shorts- I take a size 6 in both styles of shorts (I'm 5'1" with a muscular built). I love the extra length the Run Times shorts provide and I prefer to wear these for XFit. It's nice not feeling like my thighs are popping out when I'm squatting or on the rower. However, I do not like these shorts for running and I much rather prefer the Speed Shorts for running. I wore them on an 8 mile run and got chaffed- which usually doesn't happen with just 8 miles. Also, the bottoms of these shorts fold up about an inch making them a bit a annoying to run in. I spent a lot of my running tugging at the bottoms of them to keep them unfolded. That is why I only rated them with 3 stars. I find them annoying for running, but other than that I love them!

I am an avid runner and these are my hands down favorite shorts. Not too short, not too long..nice smooth comfy waistband and great colors ( I have these I the black petal camo and the sashico star prints). I bought a size 4, my usual size ( 5'1 105 lbs). Try these if you loved the Groovy Run Shorts!
