Persit Shorts Review
Persit Shorts Review

A few months ago, I tried Persit Yoga shorts. My good friend, Danielle, had recommended them solely because they were made in a cat print. I am skeptical of $20 running shorts on Amazon, but I trusted Danielle’s advice. Now, Persit Shorts they are one of my favorite brands to run in.

About Persit Yoga Shorts:

  • 2 Pockets: The Persit Yoga shorts for women have 2 pockets. I’ve stashed my keys inside.
  • High Waist: I love high-waisted shorts. They are my favorite, and Persit shorts are high-waisted.
  • Fun Colors: I like a good plain black short, but these have many different colors and prints, including tye-dye and leopard.
  • Moisture Wicking: I’ve run 12+ miles in them with no issues. They don’t chafe and are moisture-wicking (I was truly concerned about this when I first purchased them).
  • Soft and not see-through: Even the light-colored tye-dye Persit Shorts aren’t see-through, and you don’t have to worry about it.
  • They don’t fall down.

My first pair were the green leopard

My experience with Persit Shorts:

The first pair I ordered were these. When I purchased them, I thought they are dark enough but if they are thin, they won’t be *that see-through*. I rarely buy light-colored shorts unless I trust the brand.

I was pleasantly surprised when they arrived. They aren’t see-through at all! After determining upon arrival, they are a good short; I decided to go for a run in them. Not my smartest decision, but my first run in them was about 10 miles.

They didn’t fall down, chafe, or move. They fit well and are some of the most comfortable shorts I’ve owned. I was SHOCKED. I rarely buy clothing off Amazon because I don’t trust it. I’ve been going through a biker-length short phase, and the Persit Shorts hit just above the knees without being awkward.

Sizing:

In running shorts, I wear an extra small, and that is what I ordered. It fit well, and I have no issues.

Later, I decided to order these in the typical 4-inch length. They fit just as well, and I appreciate how thick they are.

Cost:

Persit shorts aren’t expensive either. They range in price from $18-22, which is cheaper than many “running brands.”

Persit Shorts Conclusion:

Honestly, I’m still shocked that a pair of amazon shorts are one of my favorites to run in. I appreciate the high waist, the quality, and of course, all of the fun colors they come in. I haven’t had any issues with them.

I feel guilty for liking a nonrunning brand so much, but Persit Shorts are awesome.

Running the Mount Diablo Four Peaks Loop
Running the Mount Diablo Four Peaks Loop

Let me tell you; there is not a lot of information on running up Mount Diablo. I had my heart set on it, and I found the Mount Diablo Four Peaks Loop, which goes to four summits: Olympic, North, Diablo, and Eagle. You can run up Mount Diablo, but you can also walk or hike too. It’s not easy, and you need a good pair of shoes, water and should be in decent fitness. There is also a road that you drive up to Mount Diablo if you prefer to.

Like I mentioned, running up Mount Diablo is challenging because it’s never really flat. You go up and down, but there aren’t many gradually increases and decreases. It’s either steep incline and decline. When I ran the Mount Diablo Four Peaks Loop, I ended up averaging about 15 minute pace. My fastest mile was one of the fire roads, and it was about 9:50.

Instant Pot pork shoulder is easy, but it takes a while to cook. When I think of Instant Pot, I think instant. Don’t we all? When I first read about Instant Pot pork shoulder, I wasn’t sure if I believed it would take nearly an hour to cook! An hour in the Instant Pot. Admittedly, I don’t use my Instant Pot as much as many people, so I haven’t had the experience of cooking for an hour.

Anyway, this Instant Pot Pork Shoulder recipe is easy and delicious. It’s easy, but it will probably take you about an hour to cook. So yes, it does take time.
