    I mean in the buff. I just ran about a mile and half butt naked and barefoot around my neighborhood, I think one person saw me but that's fine. I usually try to schedule naked runs in the summer here and there. It's about 10pm and still 90 degrees, I just had to air everything out a bit:)

    Sometimes on the wednesday

    Sometimes on the wednesday after-work run here in the Grundwald (Berlin) I do see a naked runner. However he is wearing shoes, he should ditch those too.

    Naked bikers happen too, about same frequency ...

    On local beaches which are designated for nude bathing that would even be completly legal.

    On good weather I do a bf run to the lake (around 4 km), some swimming and run back, but I do wear shorts for that (but not more).

    can't say I haven't thought

    can't say I haven't thought about it. The thing I like best about barefoot running is the simplicity of it all. I wear only shorts now, but I can imagine loosing those would be the ultimate in simplicity and probably feel great. Of course the average age in my neighborhood is about 75 so I might cause a few heart attacks.

    BF Gentile, I hope you were carrying a flash light. It would be awkward to trip on a skunk or racoon as you're airing the boys. Have fun!

    yeah... I can see that

    yeah... I can see that leading to an arrest pretty quickly in my neighborhood. Especially since my usual route passes three elementary schools. I'm pretty sure even at night that would cause issues. [​IMG]



    Besides, don't you need a little "containment" when you run? hurts just imagining it frankly.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I can't stand it!



    WG, I was just thinking the same thing. We had a thread around here about women running braless, maybe JSchawb can resurrect that one. ;-)

    Cool kilts.   These kilts

    Cool kilts. These kilts were, or still are somewhat of a popular trend in the barefoot/minimal world. Just give me good ol' fashion running shorts anyday.



    Funny about the containment part! Once you actually run naked, you will realize the containment issues, is a non-issue. I remember Bourbonfeet wrote a really interesting write up on RW about how were we made to run naked.

    I'll take your word for it. I don't doubt you're right, but am still going to have to take your word for it.

    I've been to nude beaches before and the thought of joining in never once occurred to me... could be the trauma of my sisters 'offering' to give me $5 to run around the house naked only to find they locked the door while I was running and made me wait outside till Dad got home... can't recall the age but young enough to where I still trusted my older siblings. :)

    Perhaps if women still only

    Perhaps if women still only lived 30 years or so before being killed off they could run naked, but if I'm going to live to be 80 I'm going to be giving all that connective tissue some support.

    We have streaked through the

    We have streaked through the cemetery after the gates have closed. Best feeling ever!

    Excellent training tool to have the girls free. My hubby runs commando in his kilt and wouldn't have it any other way :)

    Here was my blog about one run.

    Angie, I'm worried about

    Angie, I'm worried about you. You seem to hang around that cemetary quite too often. Do we need an intervention?

    I have Bourbon's write-up about his streaking. I've thought about adding it here. He said we could post anything from his site we wanted. I wonder if it would chase some folks away though. Ha!

    Poor guy, AJW! Sounds like a good trick though and one I wished I could have used on any of my brothers.
