Men Running Shirtless. OK, seriously, what’s the deal?
At the beach, sure!
In the pool, sure!
In the privacy of your own home, sure!
I’m all for it. But out in public, when running, and doing physically activity in where you’re exerting yourself…
No. I’m not loving it!
Can someone please explain what the deal is?
As a fellow runner, I’m not down with this. At times it’s kind of cringeworthy, because hey, there probably should be a basic level of fitness required before you get that game. And at other times, it’s downright discouraging. Because, um, “wow”… I. can’t. seem. to. drag. my. gaze. away… phew, am I puffed from the last 5km’s or…?
And I get that I’m being contradictory here, but I’m a woman, it goes with the territory.
Well, I’m willing to take it one step further and say,
Hey guys, just put a shirt on.. it’s not that hard.
For my own sanity, if not your own modesty.
Please put a shirt on, so that I can meet your eyes and exchange in the usual pleasantries and running camaraderie that I’ve grown to like.
So here’s my question, what are your thoughts?
