I ran track in high school and also cross country. I'm not in high school anymore but I still run as a workout. I am only 5'1 and my friends are all 5'10 and 5'11. I don't know how we befriended each other lol but they always tell me I need to stop running and do workouts that lengthen them and to do more feminine workouts. they do pilates and yoga so I am asking you for your opinions. they always make fun of my legs and call me stumpy and always remind me long and feminine over short and boyish. I have a pear shaped body I am a B and C cup and my waist is small and my hips are sort of big but my legs and butt are toned and I guess muscular. would yoga and pilates help undo years of damage? will they make them appear longer and skinnier?

Your friends are retarded. No offense.
There is no way to make your legs longer by excercising - hell I don't thin there's a surgery where you can get that done.
Your fine the way you are love - your sporty and healthy. Your on the small side but so what. Guys like a girl with nice wide hips, nice tushy and some squeezable t*ts.
Not some lanky string bean that looks about ready to blow away with the wind lol
Just keep your health about you and embrace your adorable size lol some of my closest friends are like 5'3 and 5'2 so -
Plus, it's harder for taller girls to find guys because guys usually prefer shorter girls. The average height for guys is 5'8 - 5'9 - I'm 5'8 lol so you can see how that can be a little problem. Especially when I'm in heels lol.
Anyway, your cute, small and adorable. You will never be able to be an Amazon - it's just not in your genetic make up - but that's fine. Embrace yourself and tell your friends to quit bugging you about it.
Because your friends definitely shouldn't be the one's making you dislike your body - good chick friends should make each other feel great the way they are.
So their yoga and pillates can shove it -
though the yoga and pillates is great for toning the stomach and thighs if you want so more tone. Other than that - yea you'll always be 5' 1.
But that's OKAY.
So love yourself.
