"Naked running, tee-hee!" = Didn't wear a Garmin. So naughy.
"I ran TOPLESS! OMG!" = Just wore a bra. Inside. On the treadmill. In the basement.
So when I say nude racing, I mean it. But I'm making you wait for it. Sorry. First up, weekly recap:
Monday: Rest. Always a good start to the week, right?
Tuesday: Ran 6 miles on TM.
Wednesday: Ran 6 miles outside.
Thursday: 6 x 1 minute @10MPH running, circuits of planks, push-ups, jumping jacks, walking lunges
Friday: Walked 2 miles, 10 minutes of Yoga
Saturday: 30 minutes of spin
Sunday: Ran 15 Miles outside
That's right...I ran outside twice this week and loved it. Even though I have to drive over an hour (round-trip) to get to a safe place to run, it's really worth it. Plus, since I'm running a marathon in Atlanta I need to get VERY comfy with hills. Today's run:
Parked at Panera to meet up with the others planning to run and (duh) ended there too. Naturally had to run in for a cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese. Such a waste, really. I ate the whole thing in like 2 minutes before I even started driving home and I swear I didn't feel any more full. I don't have any pictures of the bagel because I was too busy scarfing it down, but if you aren't sure what a bagel looks like...let me know. I'll hook you up.
Now I'm doing what I do best. Laying on the couch in a stupor. Awesome.
I bought these compression socks around Christmas when my ankle was really bad, and I'm so in love with them. I'd never heard of the brand before but I definitely prefer them to the Tommie Copper calf sleeves I have. Just wish I picked a more fun color than black.
Alright, alright - naked racing. So in April there's a race less than an hour from me called the Fig Leaf 5k. Description:
The pros of this race: it's a hilly trail 5k that is only $20, and all proceeds go to the Humane Society. Small race means greater chance of age group awards. Lots of door prizes. That $20 not only gives you a race, but also entrance to a resort for a day! Admittedly, the resort is a nudist one, but still. Plus, you get a free-shirt. To not wear. Ironic?
Cons: you know that awkward moment where you try to pass someone running on a trail? Now imagine they're naked. Yeah.....
|Streaking - now it's literal.|
I'm going to be honest, I'm totally intrigued by this. I'm no exhibitionist, but I think it would make for a pretty hilarious experience. If nothing else, the blog photos would be infinitely better that day.
Would you ever run a nude race? What about if you were dressed and everyone else ditched their duds?
I think I'll let Tim answer for me on this one with a big no. If I could get him on board I think it would be awesome. I feel like a hippie, but now I kind of want to find some deserted trail to run on in the nude. Luckily my girls won't go anywhere, so there's that.
Do you have any compression socks? Any brand you recommend?
These were pretty cheap compared to some others, which is why I picked them, but I'm wondering if they get better as you're willing to pay more?
