Brooks Running Go-To 5” Short

The Brooks Running Go-To 5” Short is a polyester short with built in briefs, elastic/drawstring waist, and a small zip pocket on the left-hand side. It is pretty basic short with white trim down the sides and along the bottom hemline.

There really isn’t  much to these shorts, so if you’re looking for a basic, comfortable running short to do the job, the Go-To 5” is just that. However, in its simpleness, it misses the bar on a lot of things that a good running short needs. It is quite boxy in shape, with no overlap on the side to allow for free motion when striding out. The inseam is a bit low, making them feel a bit saggy, and they run big. Quite frankly, they are very reminiscent of a pair of soccer shorts, both in the feel and striped detail on the side.

If you are a casual runner who likes boxy shorts, or need a pair to lounge around in, the Brooks Running Go-To 5” Short is for you!


Ghost Racerback

The Brooks Ghost Racerback is a polyester tank with a racerback design at comes in a wide range of colors.

This tank is extremely lightweight and very loose fitting — so much so that it is sheer/see through. (This is likely why it is called the “Ghost” Racerback. It was comfortable-ish due to the soft material. That may change when you start running in it because it is so loose that it tends to bounce, and begins to feel a bit saggy. The tank also runs rather big, so if you do buy it, go a size smaller. If you don’t mind tying the tank to make it fit better — perhaps in the front, side or back, there is plenty of material to do just that.

The Ghost Racerback is good for someone who likes light and loose-fitting tanks, or for those who want to bring the 1990’s side-tie shirts to the world of running.
