Last week during the Sunday half-marathon training run, the coach chatted with us about running skirts.
It seems, running in a skirt is the latest thing, and something she highly recommends, especially for long runs.
She demonstrated the “go off the trail, pretend you are stretching while what you really are doing is peeing” move that she says is a vital skill during long races.
In fact, during last year’s trail half-marathon, I do remember envying the men who blithely freed themselves from their shorts and started peeing against a tree, not even bothering to hide what they were doing, often only a few feet from the trail.
I’m getting me one of those skirts, but I think I’ll need to practice the “pretending to do lunges” maneuver, and I assume one wears a g-string of sorts under the skirt?
