Note, I wrote this post in May and it stayed in the draft version until I dedicated some time to edit it. It’s evergreen, though, and will, I hope, inspire you to get or stay in shape with the best possible outfit, your own nudity,
I had not run for more than a month. After a light surgery, the MD had advised me to wait for at least a month before running. So I patiently waited. As I was waking up in my sleepy house, I decided that the waiting was over. I stepped out of bed, went to the kitchen, drank a glass of water, put on some socks, laced my running shoes and opened the front door.
From the previous description, you can guess that at the exception of my running shoes, I was entirely naked. It is my preferred outfit for running. Despite spring, it was still the month of April and the sun had just risen, so it was not the best time to just stay still. I opened the front gate and started running to get warm as fast as possible. Well, fast was not on the program. For this first run after a long period of rest and recovery, I made up my mind for a short loop, 4K will do, at a slow pace, 8-minute per kilometer. The feeling of going back to run was so good that I started a little bit faster and broke sweat pretty rapidly.
The sun was lighting the top of the trees and I knew I was about to be hit by its rays at the next curve. the glowing light hit my naked body and pulled a smile on my face. I was back! Running is addictive, every runner knows this. Nudism is addictive too. Add the two addictions and you’ll get an ever stronger one. For most people, even nudists, running naked seem odd and uncomfortable. However, this is not knowing the wonderful machine that is the human body. And no, our loose body parts don’t hurt when running. Actually, they have natural mechanism that make all the male attribute shrink so they don’t wingle back and forth. The only issue I know about is for some women with hearvy breasts. However, if you strengthen your chest muscle and refrain wearing bras, it seems that can soon wave away the sport bra and discover the incredible comfort and freedom that running naked provides.
I soon realized that I left home with no cover-up. Not that I generally need one, but you’ll never know who you gonna meet and some people are not nudist friendly, be it farmers, other runners or just hikers, frequent in the region. At this early time of the day, the risk of bumping into someone was almost nil, so my mind wandered away and I checked my pace and my sensations. My body was working and despite my thighs reminding me that I had not properly exercised for a while, my heart was pumping blood in my veins steadily and my legs were perfectly working.
I was fifteen minutes in my run when I heard some noise afar. This was probably a tractor going though the vineyards and a panache of dust lit by the rays of the sun proved me right. I had imperceptibly slowed down, so I accelerated slightly to get pack to my original pace that was closer to 7’45” a kilometer. it was slow for me who used to run below 6′, but I knew it was a matter of time and training before going back to faster paces.
No Possible Return
I’m often asked by people whom I share with that I’m running naked, why I’m doing so? A sound answer is difficult to give, particularly to non-nudists, a.k.a. textiles. For textiles, nudity has to be limited to intimate settings. So before explaining naked running, you need to explain nudism, a.k.a. naturism. For many nudists, nudity needs to be confined to clubs, resorts and official nude beaches. And even in those settings, most would never run naked. For me nudity should be able to be enjoyed everywhere you don’t need clothing for physical protection and any sport that do not require such protections can, and should, be practiced entirely naked. Nudity provides exceptional physical comfort, as our body was never meant to be clothed in the first place. Getting back to this natural obviousness makes us rediscover this truth: we are physically built, and have evolved, to be naked.
I was just over half-way and my heart still continued pumping my blood, I was now comfortably sweating and my rhythm was regular. I was at the bottom of a long climb in the shades of pine trees and although I could feel the difference in temperature, my body was warm enough to remain comfortably naked. Although you realize this phenomenon when clothed, you live it acutely when totally naked. You understand why our body is an incredible machine that is not made to be covered by extra layers of fabric. When running naked, sweat evaporates or drops, and it not captured by the fabric of clothes. Your skin breathes and comfort sinks in.
I was now on my last downward leg, warmed up again by the rising sun. The sky was blue, I could see the mountains on the horizon, I felt great. I knew the days and weeks ahead will bring me some more training, more runs, more joy. I arrived home, and did some stretch moves on the lawn facing the sun. I took my shoes off to feel the grass on my feet. I had ran just above 4 kilometers at just below 8 minutes per kilometer. It was not a championship pace, far from it, but it was a small personal victory that was putting me on track. It was now time for a good coffee. The house will be waking up soon and new working day would begin. Naked runs were back on my agenda!
