While I type this in Ohio, it’s 46 and raining. On June 1. But just the other day I was sweating my proverbial nuts off at 5:45 a.m. While I wouldn’t say I hate running in the heat, I would say I feel greatly affected by it and I know it helps me to be as scantily clad as I dare be in public. As I get older and as my weight adjusts a few pounds here or there, what I dare wear changes. Sometimes I feel totally fine in spandex and a bra top. Other times I feel weird going shirtless even with more merciful shorts.
I know I’m not alone. Back in 2o12 when we brought you the Salty Challenge to go shirtless, we know a lot of you needed that little push to ditch your shirts and show your bellies. And when Cinnamon reran her guide to running shirtless last Friday, we heard from a lot of you that you’re just not ready to go there. So this got me wondering and leads me to this week’s Roundtable question:
What are your personal rules about ditching your shirt? Never? Only if ____. Always?
