According to the holy grail of information on the internet, Wikipeida, running shorts are designed for comfort and free movement during exercise.
Running shorts are torture devices that lure fat people ( A.K.A.– ME) with their pretty colors and fun prints into thinking we can run in them. The only thing running shorts are good for is giving one a horrific case of chub rub. Running shorts constantly creep up between my legs.
Ladies and Gents, my thighs rub together. When I run, I create enough friction between my legs to start a camp fire. THIGH on THIGH action is NOT, I repeat NOT, Sexy. Not to mention, it is quite distributing watching an overweight woman pick a crotch creeper discretely as she tires to continue to run.
THANK THE BABY JESUS (or what ever deity you would like to thank) they have built in underwear or my ass cheeks would also be making an appearance as I wiggle and jiggle around the track.
Why do they make they make these shorts in an XL?
Since I know this is just a FAT money maker for athletic gear companies across the country, I think manufactures should be courteous and include a tube of Body Glide with every XL purchase. This way us fatties don’t need to ask for “anti–chafing cream” (avoiding the words Body Glide) from a pubescent stock boy at the Sports Authority.
**I am starting a new series every Friday. I will talk specifically about all things fitness. Including rants about chub rub, which I know you are hoping I keep to a minimum.
