Those of you who follow me on instagram may remember when I posted this photo:
This frustration originated from not having any options for shorts that hold my phone besides my favorite side pockets shorts (or these– they’re reflective.) The problem with my favorite side pocket shorts is that they’re not the most flattering. But not only that, I thought it be nice to have other options that would hold my phone. I am seriously baffled by the lack of phone holding shorts options and it’s 2016! Everyone runs with their phone (and not everyone is running on a treadmill, I hope.)
Enter Senita Athletics. They contacted me after the above Instagram post and they sent me a pair of their shorts. I was so excited to try them out.
The company was started by sisters who realized the need for athletic wear that didn’t break the bank, but they also realized the need for pockets for phones. Thank you!!
I took them for a spin last week and I am already in love.
These are called the Annadel short. The liner of the shorts has a pocket perfect for your phone, with a small hole that lets you thread your headphones through the waistband to your phone. It was perfect. I controlled the volume and tracks through the microphone on my headphones and just let my phone stay in the pocket. So convenient.
Other major pluses: liner didn’t ride up, there’s a back zipper pocket and large waistband pocket (perfect for gels on race day) and a wide waistband.
Other exciting news: Senita is offering my readers 10% of their purchase using the code “maury10” (Code expires April 14th.)
(Also, just a side note. There have been studies that state having a phone close to your body could cause cancer. I have a couple things to say to this: 1. I’m pretty sure everything causes cancer these days. As a spiritual person who has lost two people very close to me to cancer, I will say that I believe in God. I believe that He has a plan and I surrender to it fully. I do not think that carrying a phone in my pocket will alter that plan, but I realize everyone has different beliefs. 2. The rest of the day, my phone is either in my purse or on my kitchen counter, so I figure a handful of hours each week with a phone in my pocket is okay.)
