Tis the season for shirtless running. I had my first bra-only run of the summer today.
There was a great discussion on the post I wrote last year about running in just a sports bra. It’s just too damn humid in the South in the summer to run with a shirt on! And I’m still so pleased that I still have the confidence to run in just a sports bra – a few years ago, I would have NEVER. My body still isn’t perfect but I don’t think that should impact the decision to go “topless” or not. If you’re working out in tough conditions, you deserve to wear whatever you want to get through the workout!
I’m still OK with the stance I took last year; whatever is most comfortable for you, do it! Although I’m changing my stance on wearing a sports bra in the gym. I used to think it was weird and tacky but now, since I’ve been working out inside this summer because of a foot injury, I’m realizing how hot it can get inside the gyms in the summer. So hey,it sports-bra-only attire helps you be comfortable and will get you to work out, go for it. I personally don’t but it doesn’t bother me when women do it. Although, some gyms have rules against that. 🙂
So, weigh in: do you think it’s OK to run in just a sports bra in the summer? If you commented last year, has your stance changed?
