Does This Make My Butt Look Big?

As a female runner, I feel that we have to be extra careful when we run to protect ourselves.  There are so many horror stories of women who have been abducted on trails, sidewalks, and even their own neighborhoods while out for their daily run.

I love Pinterest, and a friend of mine pinned some compression shorts with built in holsters in the back.  How awesome!  I sent them to my husband, who immediately purchased them for me.

Yes, I have my GWL (Georgia weapons license) and when I run along the trails I get a little paranoid.  These shorts will allow me to comfortably carry my handgun while I run.  I haven't taken them out for a test run yet - I hope to do that on my 4 mile run Sunday morning.  But they feel good, the gun isn't in the way at all, and it's easy to draw in the event I would need it.  I have taken gun safety courses and visit the range often to make sure I am comfortable and confident when handling my gun.  I hope I never have to use my handgun, but if I'm ever in a situation that I need to, I would be thankful that I have it. 

I wanted to thank my fellow bloggers that nominated me for a Sunshine Blogger Award and a Liebster Award.  Posts are coming to include those.

I hope everyone has a wonerful weekend!

Until next time,



  1. I love this! What a great idea and I'm sure you will have much more peace of mind now. Let us know how it feels when you run with it!


Your comments make me smile :)
