Yeah, me too...
Yeah, I've been going commando for more years than I can recall.

I know that Brooks officially names their gear Runderwear. And since it has a little ® next to it, I'm assuming that means every other company just calls their products technical running undergarments of some sort...

For my "normal" runs, the built in running short liners are fine. But for runs over 15-20 miles, I tend to like having some added security. I have no idea whether females would find a benefit from added support, but as a guy I know that even a small amount of movement every stride for a long period can rub me the wrong way pinch.png Especially when the liner in that favorite pair of running shorts that Joe T described gets stretched or worn out a little bit.

I have tried cotton underwear to run in before, but I like the technical fabrics more. In addition to Brooks, Patagucci and the other options mentioned, there are lots of options for men and women out there.

Back in the day, I wore a...get this...jock strap! When I started running again a couple years ago, I went out and bought a couple new jocks. It didn't take me long to figure out that there are better products on the market now.

Almost every HS runner I know (and certainly all the ones I coach). The guys go so far as to wear BOXERS under their running shorts. They won't wear the ones with liners (they are currently sporting soccer shorts) and when we did have them (long ones) they still insisted on wearing boxers underneath! rolleyes.gif I could tell you the patterns on virtually all of the guys' underwear since they wore the shorts low on their hips. All the girls wear underwear, too, because they will tell you it's GROSS not to, no matter what I tell them. I once even had a girl try to wear a "wonderbra" (a mega-push-up bra) underneath a running bra (major compression). I had to tell her that they were kind of working at cross-purposes! tongue.gif

And Joe, FWIW, that's WAY TMI, buddy. ohmy.gif It think it's worse than the conversation I listened to between Torrey, Sean and Kevin at the race! shocked.png

You'll have to refresh my memory as to what I talked about besides liking to eat cookies...

That's hilarious! Back in the day I too wore boxers that were longer than the racing shorts.

I use the added momentum to my advantage. Perfect your form to reduce chafing! (Or never run farther than 4 miles...)

Wow, this whole "going commando" thing is very foreign to me. I need my undies. Probably more of a security thing.
And, Clover, cotton undies do not necessarily mean "granny undies." But I will try the runderwear. Just so I can be more hard core.
We came, we saw, we kicked its a**!

I started going commando when I was riding more than I ran...

Let me tell you, saddle sores don't like to be bothered and even the paper thin liner of running shorts is too much for a sore crotch..

I've seen the NB & Champion athletic underwear stuff too; if I was still down with print running shorts, circa 1994, I'd break those puppies out and getting the fancy undergarments.

Cotton really isn't that bad btw, it's just got to be the right cut, imo.

They never run! You're thinking of nylon stockings tongue.png Although I do have a few pair of Jockey's in my "archives" that are very well worn and are only held together by a few thin strands of cotton. I call them "hillbilly thongs" twitch.gif

Probably wore the old cotton boxers in H.S. under racing shorts (I'll have to check out my yearbook). Going commando for me happened after getting jungle rot so bad in my crotch, I thought I would lose my legs and other parts. Okay, too much info, but the memory lingers. wink.gif
