I love running, but I admit I am not built like a runner. I am picky about my shorts and these, unfortunately, don't make the cut. I was super excited when I got them, they have the wide waistband and the amazing pockets which is something I complain about with all my running shorts currently. However, the legs are not tight enough and they ride up about 4 strides into a run. The waist also rides up, but the drawstring helps with that some. Biking didn't go well in them either, so they are left to be lounging shorts.
