    LOL... Yes... I would think a night race to start out would be ideal... not too much light...just enough to see where you're running.... You know... things always look better in dim light...

     

     

    I know, start the race in the early morning, say 25 min before sunrise time, giving an incentive to run faster!  LOL  Now what about the post race party!?

    You won't get any complaints from me.  Did I just think that or actually post it?

    Not something I'd bring my kids to watch... Just doesn't sound comfortable.

    Re: Running Naked

    coolcin, I think you are getting a kick out of the reactions you are getting out of the posters .  Whenever the word 'naked' is combined with the word 'running' many visuals pop to mind.

     

    There are a lot of people (nudist) who feel perfectly at home unclothed so a naked run is just another run for them.  It is all of us who are not totally comfortable with being undressed in public that get a little uneasy at the thought. For me I think you should go with what feels right for you but be careful if you have kids, elderly relatives, etc who might get the shock of their lives seeing pictures of you running au natural.

     

    As for the bras and jock straps, I say if you are going to do the run, do it ALL THE WAY...no half stepping!

    Re: Running Naked
    I think a short run, maybe a 5K at night, would be totally fun.  Not a marathon, though.  Those are painful enough without having to worry about how you look from behind for 26.2 miles.

    Although looking at some from behind may be just what keeps you going to the end !

    Re: Running Naked

    Oooh!  I ain't into that body piercing!  Just write the race number on your belly with a magic marker.

     

    But seriously, if you're comfortable with it, do it!  As long as you have a safe and legal environment to do it in.  I don't see anything wrong with it, but I don't think it's for me.  There are a lot of people in this world that look good naked, and a whole lot more that don't.

    Yes, that sounds like the way to go. But maybe a 10k trail race...not a road race.... you want to be in nature not on a road... where would you pin your race number

     

    You'd have to write the number with a marker.  Or, have someone write it on for you!   lol
