After seeing someone's race clothing laid out in a photo on Instagram, I decided to post a question to my running friends that had been nagging at me for some time.
So, on Twitter I asked the following...
Well, this started quite the debate among my twitter friends who made some of the following comments...
"Most people don't wear any..."
"I wear two-in-one shorts so I don't need any..."
"... perhaps what's not shown isn't worn?"
And lastly, "Wait...you wear underroos?"
So there it was. As soon as the comments started, I knew that inevitably this question was going to come up. After two years of running and learning everything I could about it, you would have thought this would have come up before! Alas, no. Honestly, I had always just thought that people were being discreet in their race photos and hiding their underwear!
Given that everyone had such varied opinions and comments about the question, I decided some further research was necessary. I created a simple, one question survey:
Responses started coming in immediately. My survey got retweeted. And in the 'end' 58 people responded in the week that the survey was live. Many commented that they wanted to know how people responded, which leads me to believe that with these results, I am providing the running community with very important information. You're welcome.
Wondering about the 'bottom' line? Here it is...
