When Tri Shorts Become Unwearable

Posted Sep 27 2010 6:21am
Yea, its been a while since I posted, but I truly couldn't miss out from sharing this little nugget of classic hilarity yesterday.

So...I decided to give tri shorts a go when I was schedule for a recent run at the track yesterday. It had been a while since I've worn them (about a year!), so it took some digging to find them. Sure enough I found them, threw them on under my regular shorts, and headed out for a few errands with Rebecca before stopping at the track for a run.

Once we got there, I started changing into my running shoes, while Rebecca came around the car. At this exact moment, I was bent over grabbing my shoes and I immediately heard laughter. Now, Rebecca laughs at me a lot, but this was one of those truly authentic, laugh from the insides kind of laugh. Something must have been really funny. It was me. The back of my tri shorts was completely see-through! Now, I've seen thin see through, where it's probably best to retire the shorts, but these were apparently see through in the truest sense. Let's just say that Rebecca was able to see a few too many details ;)

Still shocked at how I was able to put these on without realizing they were so worn (I guess there was a reason they were buried in my closet!), I replied that it probably wasn't as bad as she was making it out to be. She assured me, it was and wouldn't let me go any further...afterall, there were some kids playing football on the field at the track and she didn't want me being arrested for indecent exposure!

So I dig around in my car for the only thing I could find...swim jammers! As I'm sure most people know, swim jammers aren't always the most fashion forward kind of style. I had no other choice, so I threw them over my tri shorts. To add to this picture (I wish one of us had taken one of me), I was wearing knee high white compression socks and a little neoprene belt to hold the ipod I was planning to listen to while I ran. I truly do hope you can picture this, because I looked like I was a runner from the late 70s/early 80s. It was awesome!

Needless to say, I had a great run, likely due to the fact that in order to wear something like that, you better throw down!

When I got home, I checked myself out and was appalled. I know they had been sitting unused, but there was must have been at least a period were I was wearing them in close to that condition! How did I ever wear these? Sorry to anyone who I may have offended previously!
