I’m always on the hunt for the perfect black capri.
You would have thought by now I would have found one that I was in love with but I hadn’t. There were plenty I liked – some I liked A LOT others I liked a LITTLE. Some I would even go so far as to say I hated them.
The scoot capri entered my life recently and I know my semi cool-ish races will never be the same. No rubbing, no chaffing, no excess skin squeezed into looking like a love handle or worse creating back fat that I know I don’t have.
The scoot capri is a little longer in the leg length than other capris which I really liked. It is awesome for marathons because often times the ones that stop just around the knee start to pinch my legs when they swell from the 26.2 distance. The pinching has caused chaffing which REALLY hurts in that post marathon shower [if this has happened to you anywhere on your body you know the I want to scream at the top of my lungs pain that you feel when the water first hits that newly opened wound].
The waistband is wide – which means is flattering and flattening around the stomach region. It also has a nice hidden front pocket. I’m not talking about those sewn in squares that you find in most running shorts or capris – the kind that flap in the wind when you fold over the top of your short. This one is hidden in the waistband. It’s perfect for a key, credit card, a gel or a tiny bit of toilet paper.
I’ve found my new favorite black capri.
