The Evolution of the Men’s Running Short

I would like to personally thank companies like Nike, New Balance and others for developing running shorts that are longer in the inseam than 2 inches. There are not many men who can pull off the 2 inch inseam and I for one am one of those men.

In the 70's. Running was something that only elite athletes participated. By the 80's, with the workout crazed decade, more and more people began to join in on the recreational running. That's about the time Nike and others cashed in on everyone as well. The big shoe companies began developing running clothes for your average joe. Let us all be thankful that they have continued to develop new styles through the years.

I for one am so thankful for the opportunity to choose between an 2,4,5,7 or 9 inch inseam when I am shopping for running shorts. Like I said, some guys can wear the 2 inch inseam but for the other 95% it ain't going to work.

Trust me…




Running Rules of Thumb by Mark Remy

1. If you see a porta potty with no line, use it. Even if you don’t need to.
2. If you have to ask yourself, Does this driver see me? The answer is no.
3. If you have to ask yourself, Are these shorts too short? The answer is yes.
4. 1 glazed doughnut = 2 miles
5. You rarely regret the runs you do; you almost always regret the runs you skip.
6. Not everyone who looks fast really is, and not everyone who looks slow really is.
7. Nobody has ever watched Chariots of Fire from beginning to end. Not even the people who made it.
8. You can never have too many safety pins on your gym bag.
9. Running any given route in the rain makes you feel 50 percent more hard-core than covering the same route on a sunny day.
10. If you care even a little about being called a jogger versus a runner, you’re a runner.
