Emmovia.. the hog stampede was a fun race. It was the first larger race I had done and the first 4 mile. - I had only been running 5k's. As for the underwear issue.. I am still at a loss as well. I may get the ones you and Redrunner32 have been talking about or I may look for a microfiber thong. I tried the whole commando thing over the weekend but I'm just not comfortable with it. I guess I'm not happy with too little fabric or too much fabric.
So do u live in Illinois then or were you just here for the Hog Stampede?

Some of my running shorts have the undies built in, but for the pants/shorts that don't...I too, run commando. I find it a lot more comfortable, and I chafe less this way.
I did say I run in a g- string ( that what I always wear , home ,work or play ). My running pants don't have a lining in them I don't like them if I don;t wear the G I go with out ( FREE) So you mat want to try that . It's l almost like running in a NUDE race.

commando. no bunching or rubbing elastic, if my running shorts have a liner i just cut it out. in winter running tights, its like nothing but no rubbing chafing. also compression shorts for same reason.
Lots of time will all the time . my shorts don't have a lining in them , So i run wearing g-string or nothing under the short , the g G does help hole every thing in places .
