ATTN Joggers: Put Some Clothes On

Seriously. It’s not even 40 degrees. Bundle up. You need a hat, you need gloves and you have no business being out in shorts this time of year. I don’t know how you people do it. I know the exercise warms you up but c’mon, wouldn’t you rather be too warm than too cold? Some say it’s a myth that not bundling up makes you more susceptible to colds but the latest science suggests otherwise.

And yes, what you wear *is* my business because my empathic nature makes me feel colder when I see you running through a frosty morning half naked.

    As a runner, I wear shorts until it gets to about freezing. Otherwise, it’s too easy to get hot. And, actually, for runners, bundling up and sweating in your clothes is worse than just being cold. It’s when a cold wind hits sweaty clothes that you are likely to get a chill.

    I’m inclined to agree with ELLOBO up there. If I bundle up on long runs, chances are that my sweaty clothes cause icicles to cling to me, and that’s certainly no fun.

    My solution to overheating while running and to those pesky icicles in my clothes is to not run. It has worked for the past 15 years or so, although my doctor insists I should start again.
