A guide to running shirtless

Attention, Runners, here is a handy guide for when it is and is not okay to run shirtless. For the ladies, shirtless is defined as a sports bra only.

1. It is NEVER okay to run shirtless in a gym. Unless it is a home gym in your basement.

2. If you have a smokin’ hot body, you can run shirtless outdoors.

3. If you don’t meet the qualifications of #2, you can run shirtless out of dire necessity (bloody nipples, overheating).

4. During races you can do whatever you want. The less clothes the better…the distraction does everyone a little good.

Glad I cleared that up, huh?

Thanks to @jhubes21 and @TheDolceDiet for these shirtless jean-jogging photos posted on Twitter:

    Do you have a list that covers running shirtless and your crack is showing? I witnessed that at the St. Louis marathon. It did provide good distraction untill I passed him and had to focus on something else.:)

  5. Great Post Jill, LOL.
