Lessons learned from running... (Read 1270 times)

    I'm trying to talk my hubby into wearing one of the cycling skirts when he does a benefit ride for the JDRF in Aug. I think it would be a great way to raise money for the charity--send money and see Derek ride 105 miles in the Rockies in a skirt! Big grin k
    I'd send money Wink Oh for the record Mark, I LOVED your video!

      See, I think he doesn't really understand how much most of us want to see someone do something silly...enough to pay money for it! Remember when Woodlandsprite wore all pink to fundraise? I think she raised quite a bit, too. If I were a guy I would totally wear a skirt to encourage people to raise money--they're damned comfy! Big grin k

        Does a kilt count? I would do that. What have I learned from running? I've learned: o I'm much more competitive than I let on o I really can go the distance o I'm not a quitter
          In the realm of the bizarre, my video has become something of a celebrity piece among men who like to dress in skirts. I honestly don't know how I feel about being a vanguard of that movement! To each their own but I think I'll stick to doing this sort of thing for fun and a good cause. Smile Mark

            Some of my fastest running times have come amist a turtle head poking out. Confused
            I refer to that as a #2 tempo run! Undecided

              I just can't get past how wearing sneakers with a skirt just looks odd.
              Miss'ippi- I think ya mistyped! You meant to write "HOT". Skirts are hot. Nobody'd look at your shoes, anyway. . . Wink Great video Mark. What a great idea to raise money! I wanna see some RA guys in skirts. (I guess kilts count?)

                Wait, personal lessons from running: - Not all runs are blissful. - The mind is a powerful thing. Mind over matter, and you can do incredible things. - Wine is a good carb. - My calves are freakishly large. - I am a maneater.

                    okay i've learned something today...marionberry pie for breakfast a half an hour before a run is not that good for you.

                        He won't even do that...damn, I can't get that boy in a kilt no matter how hard I try. If he wants to compete with Ewan McGregor for my lust he needs to don a kilt! Tongue k

                          So I guess what I've learned is that slits creep. This one creeps: and this one doesn't....or hasn't yet. And, even with all that drama I still like running in skirts over shorts. Smile modified to add: I didn't get any creep action when I was running WITHOUT the fanny pack, so that may be partly to blame as well.
                          Jilly, I think your theory is RIGHT on target--I have 2 NB skirts that fit me about the same and have the same liner short. The one with slits (Bonita) rides up under my Camelbak and the one without (Andare) stays down just fine. Without the Camelbak the Bonita has no issues. Good thing I did a test run in it this AM. Got a half mile down the road and realized that I was sorta "flashing." So I ran back home and changed. Darn, I really wanted to wear my new, black one for my big race. Guess I will wear my old pale blue one, instead. Tongue k

                            I wore my black one (that has the little tiny undies in it oh and it's really short). I'm usually self consious about running in it but on Sunday I didn't even think about it. Who knows if I gave anyone a show or not.
