Lululemon Run A Marathon Crop

I haven't bought any Lulu in a long time!  Nothing lately has intrigued me so I don't even feel like going to the store anymore.  But when I saw the Run A Marathon Crop on sale, I did pick up a pair.  I actually tried these on in the store when they first came out and really liked them.  But for some reason didn't feel like paying $88.  Then I was going to buy them online and noticed that there were lots of sizes in every color left for a long time so I figured they will go on sale eventually, and they did!  $49 is just a much more appealing price than $88.

I bought the ones in black:





I love that these little crops have 7 pockets!  The big side pockets are very handy for weight lifting - they are the same pockets as my Power Vinyasa crops which I love.  I usually carry my phone (iphone) with me at the gym which is too big for most of my built in pockets.  But it definitely fits in the big side pockets of these.  There are 4 little gel pockets on the waistband and a back zipper pocket as well on these crops.  I don't need that many pockets really, but it is still nice to have.

I also don't mind the silicone grip on the sides.  Not too sure if they actually work since I wore them for the first time tonight with a cool racerback which doesn't usually ride up anyways.  So I must test it out with a No Limit tank or something later.  

These crops are a little bit hard to put on though.  The waistband is not as flexible as other Lulu luxtreme crops.  But once you pull them up, they fit tighter and stay in place better than other luxtreme crops I own.  Usually, my luxtreme crops kind of slide down a little until I warm up then it sticks to sweat and stays in place.  But these stayed in place from the get go.  I really love that.  

Another thing I really love is of course the length of these crops which hit right below the knee.  They are actually longer in the front than the back so the front covers the knee cap and the back ends right at the leg bend.  The length is perfect for me.  What I didn't notice when I tried them on in store is that the front leg opening part has silicone grip as well, so they stay in place even better.  

Anyway, I am really glad I was able to get these especially at the price that they went on sale for.  If you are in need of a pair of running crops, I would definitely highly recommend these.

  1. just wondering how they fit? did you order your regular size? i've read some review that suggest sizing up.

  2. I stayed true to size. I can see sizing up just because the waist fits tighter than other lululemon running crops. But I like that my regular size doesn't ride down and it doesn't pinch or anything. :)

  4. I bought the same exact pair! really like them too and did not size up although I agree with you that the waist is a little tight. Did you notice that the pockets kinda stretched out after washing? I don't mind too much because I stuff my iphone into them too but they do look a little funny now. I also thought they dug into the back of my knee a bit but I also ran in 95 degrees so could have just been really swollen! glad we got them on a discount at least :) and still worth the 49. like your blog - thanks!

    1. I don't think my pockets stretched, but I only wore them for the first time yesterday and have not washed them yet. I do find that the pockets stretch a little in the Power Vinyasa crops but not too bad. And you are right, the discounted price is awesome! Totally worth it. I was outside in probably 80s and didn't feel them digging into my knees at all. I actually found them to be super comfortable and amazing! Really liking these right now. =)

  5. I just got this too from WMTM. I should have sized up to a 4 as I find the waist really tight as well and the length a bit weird on me. I'm 5'8 and it hits just at the knee but the fabric also digs into the back of my knee. I guess for $49 the price isn't too bad and hopefully these crops stretch out a bit after washing like the Run: Shorty shorts did.
