I refuse to wear running shorts (during long runs or races, that is). Did that get your attention? Thought so! No, I don’t run naked. I am way too self-conscious for that. In fact, in an effort to avoid the brazen head to toe spandex look, I used to wear shorts. Unfortunately, women’s running shorts seem to get shorter and shorter each year. My skin is very sensitive and even with bike shorts under my shorts; I still had a few cases of chafed thighs. So, I converted to running tights (tight running shorts) and haven’t chafed since! If tight pants aren’t for you, don’t worry. There are plenty of options.
