Great Running Shorts

I bought these for the extra pockets. Love the deep side pockets for extra phone protection. Very comfortable waistband. Moisture wicking.

Awesome

Can't wait for the next release of these. Somehow just feel like that much lighter than the 7in.

Favorite short!!

These are my all time favorite pair of shorts. They are the perfect length and stay in place no matter how many miles I run in them. Thanks for putting out such an awesome product!

Fits perfectly!

These are so comfortable. The inseam is the perfect length for me: not too short but not terribly long. The grips keep them staying put, and they aren’t very heavy material at all. Light but not see through. Perfect for a long summer run!

Great shorts

My Favorite running shorts. Don't ride up. In the coastal color they do show some sweat . Fit true to sizing.

The amazing pace short, now in a shorter (for summer and us shorter folks) 5" length!

I love my pair! Like the 7" pace short, I love basically everything: the side pockets, internal rear card/key pocket, the pass through shirt/phone pocket in the outer rear, the drawstring, the silicone dots to keep the short in place -- zero riding up ever, without needing to readjust at all!

With the hot summer coming, I was keen to try this shorter version --- I was very pleased to find the length is still great for ensuring absolutely no thigh chafing on long runs (one of the key reasons I tend to do runs 8mi and longer in compressive shorts). One thing I've noticed: the new drawstring holder stitching is an amazing touch, but I've found that stitching to be a bit tight relative to the stretch of the full shorts material (hopefully this can be improved in future iterations!)

Game changers!

I have never found fitted running shorts I liked until this updated version of the Pace shorts! These stay put (don’t ride up and don’t slide down even with things in both pockets) which is a miracle. I love the updated dot grippies! I’m between sizes but sized up to a M because I like things slightly less tight. Please keep making these! Both the 5” and 7” are awesome.

THE perfect pair.

In the winter, I exclusively run in the pace tights. In the summer, I rotate between the AFO Middle and 7" pace, but the 7" has never been IT for me. I love them because they fit well and stay in place, but I'm short and they're long.

I finally got to run in the 5" today (which I have requested in every single Janji survey ever), and I AM IN LOVE. The birds were tweeting. The sun was shining. Somewhere, I think I heard an angel singing.

Long love the 5" Pace Short. Don't change anything about them. They're perfect.

10-mile run approved!

Love the color! Wore these for a 10-mile run, they stayed and in place and no chaffing. Different from my usual running shorts, it was fun to mix it up!
