I am not a runner, but when i was pregnant, I was biking a lot (It was easier than walking. Really.) I bought a couple of maternity skorts to bike in, because while there was a shield over the bike chain to prevent accidents, my favoured garb of long loose skirts had a risk of catching in the back break. (Not fun for the biking. Less fun for the fabric.) I liked them better than just wearing gym shorts or leggings without the skirt.
I needed this post then. Because I always felt self conscious that i was daring to do exercise (okay, travel to work) in a *short!* *skirt!* And waiting for the person to make the snarky catcall (Considering the neighbourhood, nobody ever did.) I could tell the inner voice to shut up as much as I liked, it didn't.
So, a belated cheer,l because yes. It's really good to hear it from someone else. And when I start biking again (if I can find a toddler-worthy back chair I like), I should get a couple of not-maternity athletic skirts.
