The shorts are a size large and are very comfortable. These shorts were initially sent to me as part of my run outfit, however, they didn’t quite work out. Instead of sending them back to ALO, ALO has suggested that I give them away to you! Like I said, they are a size large and I have tried them on once. The package will be shipped from me — so don’t look for an ALO return address!

To Enter.

Disclosure: ALO provided me with two outfits for FitBloggin’ as well as these shorts. All opinions given here and during FitBloggin’ while wearing the ALO clothing are my own.

    My fave workout outfit is sentimental more than an actual favorite. It’s the running shorts and Kick (from teaching Group Kick) tank I wore to run my first half last fall. The Kick tank I wore with my sis and our running friend Steph who also became Kick certified with us. It was sort of a bonding/unity thing. And got me through that race, that’s for sure! Hence my favorite workout outfit :)

  9. 9

    I love my Nike running jacket Dan bought me for Christmas. It has a pocket for basically anything I’d ever need to carry with me on a short or long run. And it’s perfect for fall/winter/spring running.

    Also, I follow ALO on Twitter!

    my favorite workout outfit that i actually own is my yoga pants (from i don’t know where a really long time ago), a long sleeve reebok running shirt with thumb holes and a pocked on the arm for my keys, etc, my asics sneakers, and a bondi band to keep my hair outta my face! :)

  15. 16

    My favorite workout wear are my Old Navy Running tights and my black tech T-shirt from a race. So comfy and I look great before and after sweat.

  16. 17

    …I still need to buy that hoodie…

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE a long sleeve purple Nike Dri Fit shirt that Hans gave me for Christmas two years ago. I wear it A LOT. Probably too much. But I swear I wash it between workouts!!!

  17. 18

    I already “like” ALO on Facebook. Great giveaway!

    my workout outfits have to vary for cold weather and hot weather! I prefer the feel of shorts and would wear them year round if it was possible. The lack of chafe is important to me. Shirts, prefer tanks (again, its so cold in winter cannot wear yearround). I hate running in pants, and if I must they have to be tight at the bottom :):):)

  21. 22

    I already follow ALO on Facebook AND twitter 😉

  22. 23

    I LOVE Alo, and I like them on Facebook, too. :)

  23. 24

    I am picky but cheap about my workout clothes. I wish I could afford awesome stuff like LuLu and Alo to wear more often! I cannot workout in anything but spandex or cotton leggings right now. I’m totally moving away from shorts…weird, I know.

  24. 25

    Nike capris! I feel badass!

  25. 26

    Hi Katie, I am happy to see you are reviewing workout clothes…I may have to pick your brain next time I see you. I am looking for a good pair of running shorts. I have problems with them riding up and chafing. My favorites were a pair of men’s addidas shorts, but they finally bit the dust. For now I am loving my running tights (no chafing) and new balance shirt with thumb holes. Congrats on your last race!

      Thanks Ellen!

      As for running shorts, I have the same issue — riding up and chafing. Anytime I wear running shorts, I wear spandex underneath to avoid that issue. I know there are some new styles coming out that have spandex in them instead of the underwear since so many people have this issue.

      I really enjoy running best in capri length workout pants. Not issues at all and actually ALO makes an awesome capri that I love running in! (Especially now that the weather is cooperating more!)
