Bare-ly Running

Dude.... I just found out about the coolest race, EVER.

Inaugural Cherokee Running Bare 5k

And because, I know you're lazy and you won't click on the link... allow me to tell you why its so freaking cool.

-- It's a race that takes place within a Nudist Resort!!!!!
-- Clothing is optional!!!!
-- For 10 dollars, they'll take your picture (nude or not nude)!!!!!
-- You have to bring towels... to sit on.
-- If you want to swim in the pool or get in the hot tub, you must be nude.

I mean.... seriously... how freaking cool is that? Obviously, I wouldn't run nude... I mean, I gotta have a sports bra on... but, the even cooler thing is that... I think the fact that I would be wearing a sports bra, would give me a distinct advantage in the race. Less floppity-flopping=faster running. So... there's a good possibility that I could place in my age division and really... would anything be cooler than saying that you placed in a nudist 5k?

So, I've already got plans next weekend to visit my friend Sara, but next year.... next year, I'm all about this race. Who's with me?

I'm laughing my head off. I couldn't even open the link because our firewall blocked it as "porn". Plus, love the title of your post.

OMG...that is too funny! I got the link open and have laughed ever since. Well, I can say I've never thought to run 'bare' but perhaps this could be added to my list of 101 things ...hahahahahaha

That's a great idea, but I think you've got it backwards. Being the only nudist in a race would have to make you faster, right? Maybe I'll try it for my next race, and see if I can PR.
