As I keep trying to become a ”runner” I have read many an article of the right and wrong things to do.
I have learned that I tie my shoes correctly. That I eat the right proteins for before and after. That I have to do intervals, That I need to run up stairs and hills to build strength and become faster. I have learned that I just need to go. Yet, I find myself on the fence about underwear.
So many arguments about wearing underwear on a run. Some Pro’s some Con’s. Honestly, mostly con’s! The argument that it is unhealthy to wear underwear on a run baffles me. You are still wearing pants. At least I hope you are wearing pants, unless you are in Portland doing the Bare Buns Run, then pants are not allowed. But, in real life on real runs you were pants. Sweats, shorts, leggings, skorts….. some type of garment.. that covers your privates….like underwear would! How can it be healthier? The argument just baffles me.
Meanwhile, I choose to wear underwear and all is healthy under there. So far, knock on Hanes.
