I just got back from Bay to Breakers - race report coming soon. As usual, there were lots of naked peeps on the course. In the past (2001-2006), I've always done the drink and walk version of B2B. This year, I actually ran it (thanks Renu for keeping me going!) and we still saw lots of naked peeps - but not walking, running!
Seriously, how do they do this? How do you run 7.5 miles with no... you know, support? (This is for both the chicks and the dudes.)
I've been wondering this for awhile. My alma mater is the fine institution that held (holds?) The Naked Mile every year at midnight on the last day of classes. (I was just a spectator, not a participant - my friends did it, but it just wasn't for me. It was more fun to watch it from the bar with my other friends where it was nice and warm - heehee.) Even then, that was just one mile - not over seven!
Anyway, as much as I tried to avoid them during the race, it is certainly an impressive feat!
On my morning radio show, one of the DJs commented that the dudes might run naked at B2B simply to have more room. Could be! With over 60,000 participants (only 1/3 or so actually register), the race course is *packed*. Lots of bumping into peeps and elbowing and all that. But I know me and my buddy definitely swerved to avoid any run-ins with those guys. I think everyone did!
