    Re: Running Naked

    LOL, think Bay to Breakers in San Francisco...

     

    Try it once as long as it is sanctioned and let us know how you feel about it.  There are trails in Germany where clothing is optional.

     

    As with so many things, namely nude beaches, generally you really don't want to see them that way.

     

    LOL

     

    Heck, I don't want to see myself naked why run or walk that way?  ;o)

    Re: Running Naked

    I did San Francisco Bay To Breakers this year ... I don't mind seeing naked people, but what I wasn't prepared for was wrinkly naked 70 year old grandpas and grandmas covered in shiny sticky sweat from head to ankle (they are wuss and wear shoes, haha).

    Re: Running Naked

    The only nude 5K in Southern California is April 18 at Olive Dell Ranch near Riverside, convenient access to LA, Orange County and Palm Springs.   It's a cross country trail run with a few good hills.  Last year 98 participants ran the course ranging from college students to a those in their 50's.   Times were very competitive.    You know it's somewhere on your bucket list, so may as well sign up and give it a try.  Only $25 with the shirt and a visit to a nudist resort you probably didn't know existed.  http://www.active.com/running/colton-ca/2nd-annual-bare-burro-nude-5k-run-2011Bare Burro Nude 5K.jpg

    Re: Running Naked

    i am guessing it is not a run you do to raise $$ for charity??

      or with your kids?

    where would you put your goo or clip ur ipod?

    but i guess it solves the problem of luggage when you travel 

    i know i for one would be last to finish.as a courtesy . no one needs to see this mother of four in the buff..

    and i guess you dont go online  a few days after to see race photos...or get a shadowbox metal?

    Re: Running Naked

    There's a race called The Bare BunsTrail Race or something like that run just up the Turnpike from Philly. It's about 4.5 miles long and takes place within a secure park property that has a lot of other adult, clothing optional activities.  I was tempted to try it last fall, but the timing was off.  I hadn't run any races yet at that time.  It would have been a fun sort of thing for me, not particularly sexy.  Most of the folks who do that sort of thing are just regular people, not centerfold material by any stretch of the imagination.

    I found out later that my girlfriend's mother goes to that park now and then.  There's a scary thought!

    Re: Running Naked

    I write a blog called the Fat Guy Jog Blog.... so for the health of those around me, I'd day this is one that I'll avoid for now.  Of course once I lose the weight I might be ready to show off.... but for now I'll stay in hiding.

    Re: Running Naked

    So wrong on so many levels!!!  The mental image is enough to turn me off to the idea, with things flopping and flying all over the place   Plus, I could imagine this could be a little painful, with rubbing and pulling going on in places that are otherwise safely supported when you run clothed.

     

    I think I will stick to running clothed, but to each his own! :-)  hahaha





    Believe you can do it. Think no other way but “Yes you can.”
    The human body is capable of considerably more physical endurance than most of us realize!!

    Re: Running Naked

    Last year we had experienced runners, college students, a mother pushing a jogger, couples, singles and participants from 20 to 70.   If you focus on the bodies, it's not always a pretty site. If you focus on the smiles of people being a bit wild and very free, it's one of the most beautiful things you'll see.   Life's short.  When you day comes will you be thankful you never tried it, or thinking you might have taken a bigger bite out of a life on a few occasions?

    Seriously!  Just the thought of the "sisters" being out there and unsupported while I'm running makes me (((((shudder))))).   I wear clothes while running for the same reason the runners in the picture are wearing shoes - for protection!  (I notice none of them are barefoot)   Okay, and for modesty too.....

    Um, yeah think I would have to say no. Swinging in the breeze is not my idea of fun running.
