Photo of the Week: Underwear Run

Thanks to a friend, Nancy, I discoverd this picture and several others of the Underwear Run over at Ironmitch’s blog.

Underwear Run, Kona Hawaii

The Underwear Run was started in 1997 by Roch Frey, Paul Huddle along with one other Ironman-in-Training. The run takes place just prior to Ironman Hawaii which took place this past weekend on Oct 21st. It was started at first to poke fun at triathletes who wore their training gear such as speedos, spandex and sports bras not just while training but out shopping, at coffee shops and almost anywhere. Some say “If you are going to run in your Speedos you might as well run in your underwear.”

Now that’s a run with some great scenery.

Got a photo you would like to share? Please leave me a comment.
