We can't wait for the pandemic to end just to break a sweat. Fortunately, everyone is now running and doing their own exercise routines, whether it’s a safe trot around the neighborhood or a knee-burning jaunt up to the nearest hill and back down again. Now there's only one thing left to do, and that is to dress the part.

Luckily, Amazon has a great selection for you and your wallet, all listed down here for convenience. So without further ado, here are x number of running shorts you can get for under $10:
