I have an A-W-E-S-O-M-E giveaway to tell you about today!
If you follow me on Twitter or know me in real life, you know that I’m a little obsessed with Oiselle. It all started back in 2008 when I was sick of looking ridiculous in ugly, poofy running shorts. I did all my runs in cotton “cheerleading shorts” because they looked *better* but didn’t feel right for running. I had a friend who worked at the local running store, Super Jock N Jill, and she told me to try this new brand called Oiselle. She handed me the Marseille Short and I wanted to say “no thanks”. It looked like every other short on the rack. I guess just because I was too nice to say no, I tried on the shorts and they truly changed my running life. No poof. Perfect cut. Lightweight. Small key pocket inside. So flattering. I couldn’t believe it!
Oiselle’s Marseille Short was revolutionary in my mind, so I started buying other Oiselle apparel, and landed upon the Roga short. O-M-G! This short is a little slice of heaven.
Here’s the Roga description from their website:
The Roga Short is a Oiselle classic. A super flattering yoga style waist band combined with weightless running shorts. It’s the short that started the Roga Revolution. If you haven’t run in the Roga yet you’ll understand the revolution as soon as your run in your first pair. No poof, super streamlined, one rear zip pocket, booty flattering wonder short!
If you crave a little more coverage, you’re in luck! The Roga Short also comes as the Long Roga Short now.
– yoga style waistband with drawstring
– technical liner with integrated pocket
– 4” inseam
– rear zip pocket
– four way stretch for full motion
– flatlocked inseams
– machine washable
A little side note from me: I don’t generally run with my iPhone but took it this past weekend for 17 miles. It fits perfectly into the back pocket of the Roga, doesn’t move at all, and I couldn’t feel it in there at all. Impressive!
SO GUESS WHAT?! The wonderful ladies at Oiselle are going to giveaway a pair of Oiselle Roga Shorts to one lucky Local Elite reader!
