When it's hotter than hell out and sweat is dripping down your face, do you keep your shirt on?
In all my years of running I've never gone "shirtless" until last year while training for the marathon during the summer. It felt a tad cooler to not have the extra bulk of a shirt on while cruising up and down the lakefront.
So I bought this Nike sports bra today with a Macy's gift card that's been burning a hole in my pocket since Christmas and it got me thinking should I ever just wear a sports bra and shorts for a race?
Asides from the insecurities of letting it all hang out and my uncanny resemblance to the female version of the Pilsbury Dough Boy, I don't feel badass enough to roll up to the start in booty shorts and a sports bra. I'm not in the same league as those super fast ladies... Yet. Nor would I want to give the impression that I am totes badass...
I have this Brooks D'lite mesh tank which is kinda see through and super breathable. I love it.
BUT as the number of super cute sports bras in my wardrobe increase along with the temperature, I can't help but ponder if I should go "topless" for a race**
Guys and ladies- have you run a race shirtless?
*Generally I refrain from the usage of totes, OMG, adorbs etx but felt it was the correct terminology to get my point across on how I feel about the cuteness of the sports bra.
**I cringe to think of how the race photos might turn out... But should I even care if I feel more comfortable?
