Run: Fast Track Short II
Possibly the best purchase I have ever made
Love everything about these shorts. Perfect for running, biking, wearing around town, anything. I will probably ask to be buried in these. They are the perfect length, make my butt look great, and have lasted a year and still look brand new. Hands down, my favorite lululemon purchase! I honestly can't say enough about these shorts. BUY THEM!

Love the concept...
I love the length, the feel and the overall fit of these shorts. I am an 8 in all pants and crops and sized up in these because I do have thick muscular legs so shorts tend to look like sausages in my normal size. The fit of the 10's is great, I just wish that the band of the legs had that tape that makes them stay in place. The shorts don't ride up in the crotch but the legs move and I have gotten chaffing on my longer runs. I want to wear these for my upcoming half marathon but I'm unsure about it because I don't want to end up in pain and bleeding on my inner thighs before the end of the race! Next model please put that tape that used to be in a previous model of similar shorts for us meaty legged gals :)

Great Running Shorts
These shorts are one of my favorite purchases in a long time, not just from Lulu! They are extremely comfortable and don't ride up when I run. They are a nice length, and the zipper on the side doesn't bother my at all, in fact I really like it there. I put my iphone in it so I can use the Map My Run app. I did size up in these, I'm 5'2 and 140 pounds and I usually take a 6 in most Lulu pants but I sized up to an 8 in these shorts. I bought them in black and was eyeing the ones with the pink waist band, and they sold out of size 8 so I grabbed a size 6 before they were gone. I'm on a wedding diet and have been losing weight, so I really hope the 6's will fit within the next few months. Lulu please make more of these!!

Mini Me Perfection!!
These guys are the Inspire crop 'mini me' and are absolutely perfect! I mostly run trails and half marathon to ultra distance trail races. Living in WA the inspire crops have gotten me through cold winters but I can't tolerate them once the temp is above mid 50's. My crops have survived rain, mud, snow and climbing over rocks and fallen trees!! Once or twice I thought I'd look down to see I've snagged a big hole but not my trusty Inspire crops. So I decided to give the short version a try. I usually like loose, typical running shorts but on some days at longer distances the liner can literally be a pain in the butt with chaffing issues. These shorts fit just like my crops which never cause this issue. I wear them commando (I know TMI!!) and they stay put with no chaffing issues at all. These are a perfect length, cute but not ridiculously short. The waistband is comfortable and the drawstring is handy. The only thing I would change is to put the pocket on the back. This is a great place to carry gels, a key, tissue etc without causing bounce or rubbing. Please, please more colors also!! As for sizing I got my usual 4 and they fit great (waist 27, 123lbs, athletics thighs!)

MAX-imizing my Marathon!!!
These are the bomb. I'm almost 6 feet tall-let me put that out there. Never in a million years did I think I could pull off a fitted run short?and what do ya know-I feel like a million bucks in them. Function wise they are pretty spot on. The side zipper holds my power gel perfectly, and I LOVE the infinity drawstring. I would have loved a backside pocket as I'm running a full marathon and need more than one gel pack.
Literally I have never worn a short and loved it as much as these-and in my 20+ mile training runs I NEVER had to pick them out of my crotch or pull them down between my legs-they stayed in place perfectly without squeezing my legs!
Can't wait to hit the pavement and goal crush next weekend in these amazeballs shorts!

Awesome shorts for any activity on curvy body
I left one star off because that darn zipper on the size is annoying. It's really the zipper pull. Any activity where you drop your arms to the side, you'll rub against it. Wish it was in the back like the pants. That aside, the shorts are awesome!The length is great and they don't ride up. I had to size up. I'm 5'3" 145 lbs and I got an 8. The draw cord is a good option, but I find I don't need to use it. They are loose around the waist when I don't but still comfy. Wish they had more camo color. I got the black. The first time I wore them I took an outdoor boot camp class, then went running 2 miles. They held up well. Can't wait to try them in hot yoga class. Make more colors! Bring the camo back!

Epic Shorts :)
I highly recommend these shorts as they can be worn for almost any athletic activity. THESE SHORTS ARE THE PERFECT LENGTH! Boogie shorts are way too short for running and even dance, and I find groove shorts to be awkwardly long. The Fast Track Short are perfect middle ground! I love that these shorts are form-fitting, but not uncomfortably tight. Another plus is that these shorts are not sheer in the least bit, unlike other lululemon shorts and yoga pants I have bought in the past. The zipper is also conveniently placed. Highly recommend this product :)

The shorts fit amazing and are incredibly comfortable for any activity. I'm 120 pounds, 5'5", and a size 4 fits just right. However, this is the second time I order an item and it comes dirty. If I'm ordering a brand new item, I would hope that they are being inspected prior to shipping. That's really my only complaint about these items, just disappointed on the condition of receipt.

Great running shorts
A few years back I was looking for a running short that was longer because I have more muscular legs and a narrow body. I found a pair and have loved them. Recently I decided I wanted to get a few more long pairs but they arent made that often. Luckily the day I looked I saw this pair! I bought two pairs because I loved my old ones so much and use them every time I run when the sun is out. They are FANTASTIC and even better than the first pair I have. They are a great length, dont ride up, stay in place, the pocket is great and they are really comfy material!
