Compression Shorts

7.5 miles - about an hour.

I'm in the market for some compression shorts. I need something that's going to keep me warm above the knees and keep chaffing to a minimum. Right now I've had some chaffing issues on some long runs due to clothes being wet and not drying. As long as shirt/shorts are dry, there's no problems, but the Mt. Mitchell Challenge in Feb. can have some very cold/wet weather like last year.


  1. Whoa. Where's that run? On your upcoming course?

    I like these ...

  2. That's just before the summit on the MMC course last year. I'm hoping for a dry day this year.

  3. That doesn't look like a whole lotta fun, but that's what you get for racing up mountains in February.

    I bought a pair of no-name (Layer 8) knee-length compression shorts from TJ Max the other day for $8, but I'm cheap. Before that, I had a pair of speedo compressions that I inherited from my wife.

  4. Can't go wrong with an $8 pair. I'll check those out first and if that's all I need I'm all set - thanks for the tip.
    How are the buttons holding up on your Axis?

  5. Rick - as before. See comment on my blog. Thanks to your dog for the tip on (not) drinking fat! Must have seemed like a good idea at the time.

  6. Hi there! This is my first comment here so
    I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I really enjoy
    reading your blog posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the
    same subjects? Appreciate it!
