Running Naked

What do you think? Good idea or bad?

    This can be a dicy subject.  In my area they annally have a 'Dare to Bare ' race which seems to be well attended (I have never done it).  It all comes down to what you feel comfortable with.  If you have no problems with the concept, go ahead and enjoy it.

    Careful to get enough, uh, support. Some parts don't like being strained. Don't ask me how I know.

    dwm082, VERY well put.  Also you have to be ok with the thought that your (naked) image has the potential to be on the net.  The technology is so good today that the world can see you by the time the race is over.

    As someone else pointed out, there are races where all people wear are running shoes!   As long as its legal, go for it!

    Don't think you're asking about your everyday training.  That could

    earn you a stay in the local jail and a place on the national sex

    offenders list.     If it is a naked race and you want to run it.  Go ahead and have some fun.  Bart Yasso describes his nude marathon in his book.   It is hilarious.   Good luck and don't forget sunscreen!





    Plan your run and then run your plan.

    I totally don't consider myself a prude but the first thought I get is "why?".  I barely want to see things when they are still, I certainly don't want to see them swinging....:^0





    TRUST THE TRAINING!

    Haha couldn't agree more Cyndi!!

     

     

    I think this would be painful! There is a reason sports bras were invented!

    I'm a racewalker, I wouldn't mind trying it if I could wear a jockstrap. If not I could see where it could be painful. And what happens to large chested women?
