Cheap running/workout shorts?

Figured I'd ask here since you all are also working out. Currently I'm wearing some mens Champion shorts. They are very long though and are getting on my nerves during my workouts. I want something shorter, made for a woman. But I have little money to spend. Wondering if any of you have found an awesome deal anywhere? I'd even love to find used ones as long as they are still in good shape. I mean I would love to spend like $500 on new cute workout outfits lol but that can't happen and no one would appreciate them except my kids.

I'm a size large or a 12-14? My current jeans are 14's but they are getting too big.

These are the shorts: http://www.underarmour.com/shop/us/e...pid1209147-086

The ones I have are mediums. Check out the size chart and let me know if they will work for you. If so, I'll cut you a deal.

They might work, they might be tight now, or not fit at all but if my weight loss keeps up then they will in no time. You can message me how much you want for them. Thanks!

Re: Cheap running/workout shorts?

About 2 years ago, I would work out during my lunch breaks. One day I had forgotten my running shorts so I weighed my options and decided to go to the closest store near my office and see if I could find something to wear for cheap. Family Dollar had summer shorts that were similar to running shorts for under $10. They were black with pink and white stripes on the side, made of a similar meshy material.

Since I wasn't a serious, hard core runner at the time, these shorts did just fine.

I haven't checked places like that. You are right I don't need real nice quality stuff although that would be nice.
