The Benefits of Running Naked

Running Naked

Have you ever wondered what it was like to run…naked?

Well, The Naked Runners have! They started a movement hoping to get people to ditch the distractions, and get out there to run! I'm sure many of you can relate to always needing to carry an iPod or mp3 player on your runs. Maybe you can't go out for a run without a Garmin on your wrist, or always feel the need to wear shoes. This is the case for many runners today. I was enlightened talking to The Naked Runners about the freedom that can come from running naked!

Dave Robertson and Silas Moss of the Naked Runners want to encourage people to let go of their dependence on these things, and just run! They do most of their runs “naked” and fully support running with the least amount of gear and clothing as possible.

Mapping your routes before a run on WalkJogRun is a great start on your way to naked running. It can be a great feeling to get out there and not have to look at your watch, especially with your route already mapped.

Tune into this episode of TalkJogRun to hear why this may be something you should try! I was definitely interested in hearing their views on barefoot running, and may give it a try when it gets warmer outside! Do they get completely naked when they run? Listen in to find out!

The Naked Runners feel that the more you can ditch the distractions and just run, the better. You will look better, feel better, and perform better. Listen in to find out how!
