So, today I ran in my underwear. It was Cupid’s Undie Run in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood- one of the few which would not have protests regarding a bunch of people running around in their underwear! It was hilarous and so much fun!
What I learned today:
1 Fashion Tape can make any decent underwire bra work as a decent jog bra for a SHORT run.
2 Underwear runs are much more popular with 20-year-olds interested in drinking BEFORE they run
(not that this was a surprise mind you- just fun to watch)
3 I was not too old to run fast, not so worried about my self image to care if I looked perfect in my silly outfit, and knew enough to come with friends!
4 Regular nylon stockings keep you pretty warm and might be a good idea for a longer, cold run I want to wear shorts, but am concerned about being cold!
5 It felt good to go run for a cause and have a good laugh while we were at it!
And finally, this was training of a different sort, you see I know there will be moments in the Tough Mudder where I will feel VERY humble, this was an excellent training exercise in humility!
