Newbie question about shorts/underwear

Hi Everybody,

 

This is my first post on here. Nice to meet you all.

 

I just started running at the end of May and finally picked up some dedicated running shorts yesterday (men's, btw). In my rush at Dick's, I grabbed some Nike DryFit shorts that were on sale and checked out before trying them on.

 

They fit fine and all, but I wasn't expecting the swim-trunks-style underwear inside. Are these meant to be worn with no additional underwear?

 

What do most people wear under their shorts when they run? I usually wear boxers. I have a pair of cotton briefs, but I tried running in them and they stuck to my body and gave me a wedgie. Not pleasant.

 

What are the ups and downs of different methods? Impart to me your collective wisdom...

 

-Ryan
