>tfw went running today
>wore my balaclava, and my running attire for cold weather.
>every women i saw either grabbed onto her purse really hard, or walked across the road to get out of the way.
What kind of fucking autistic weirdo wears a balaclava outside anyways?
>2016 (happy new year!!!)
>doesn't own a balclava
Why are you here
>put on my balaclava just as I'm leaving to bike home from college
>"Oh, shooting up the school today?"
>See my friend on the way home
>"you look like a fucking school shooter"
this actually bothered me deeply, I dont wear it anymore.
>you look like a fucking school shooter
What fucking retards. School shooters don't wear balaclavas. Don't pay attention them, they're speds trying to take the piss out of you. Wear that balaclava anon.
Is this you anon? I'd grab my teddies and hold them close if you came by in this desu senpai
I don't understand why normies get so scared seeing a man wearing a balaclava, especially when it's fucking cold out. I wear my scarf that I fold into a ninja mask when I walk through my local park and I actually "starled" some lady and she has the fucking nerve to laugh and say "OMG You Scared Me!!" . Yea well maybe you should be more fucking aware of your surroundings you fucking normie bitch. Am I not allowed to walk on a popular walking trail in this park now? shit like this pisses me off.
I'd rather just deal with the cold and wear a beanie then be picked on or feared. people used to say in highschool that I looked like a school shooter
I was relatively happy then, and I had no ill will towards anyone. why are people so cruel?
Wear whatever the fuck you want.
But honestly, just wear a beanie. You'll always get unwanted attention for wearing a ski mask. If you're into taking hikes or any outdoor activity that isn't in the vicinity of retards, a ski mask will be better.
Seriously tho, who goes running with their goddamn face covered? You know what we wear on our heads in the Army when it's cold out? A fucking watchcap. That's it. Becasue we're not fucking pussies. What do you live in the Arctic circle or something? You afraid to breathe in some of that sharp cold air? Well toughen up, faggot. It's not like you're gonna catch a cold or anything. Unless you're a pussy. Are you a pussy, faggot? I bet you are. Why don't you cuddle up with some hot cocoa and wait this winter out? I don't think you're cut out for this. I'll see you on the track when it's spring, motherfucker. I'll know it's you if I see you becasue you'll probably be wearing a headband or some gay shit like that. Pussy.
Nah senpai, this is me. I always jog with a balaclava when it's cold. After 5k's the cold starts to really be a bitch without one.
Especially if there is a big breeze.
>go running this morning
>cross paths with a couple other serious runners
>think they're plebs for not wearing a compression shirt,windbreaker tied around their waist, and running tights
>have black coffee and maple donut to "carbload" on way home
Pic related is doing it right, though I don't like his shoes. Ugly color, and it's in that shitty middle ground between minimalist and maximalist footwear. I was one of those minimalist guys but after trying Hoka I'm never turning back. It's like I'm bouncing off soft little angel butts and boobs with every step.
And stick to basic pants, a shirt, but good runners (I splash 200-300$+), and wear a plain shirt and jacket. And when it's cold i wear my balaclava as pictured.
Yet with my sub-par gear i still run 50-60km's+ every week and run in marathons and cross country. Funny how that works? I must not be a serious runner because I'm not plastered in nike or addidas.
I've got a pullover like this with the balaclava built in.
It's not the designer shit so much as the tek fabric. Personally I wear an underarmour balaclava. It's really an incredible experience that is hard to believe without experiencing it yourself. I was skeptical too over a fucking $30 hat, but after getting one as a gift I am now a firm believer in all the meme fabrics. You look like a jackass, but I consider it like being a lowgrade cyborg. Clothes used to do basic protection and look good. Now they do advanced protection, functioning like a second layer of robot skin. It's something you'll wear every time you run anyway. A couple sets for a hundred and something isn't that much when you divide their cost by daily use and look at the average price per run.
You're pathetic, almost as bad as those motorcyclist i meet who are in complete leather-suits yet cant ride for shit. I'd probably run rings around you and your special sweat sucking clothing.
That's the embarrassing thing. Probably fat too.
>Ran in 5k in 18 mins in 28 degree temp today. But whatever dude
I run better, you know what's funny? I'm the gas-mask guy who usually runs in 28 and more in Australia with a gas-mask and it's filter attached.
I was running 5k back in year 7.
>I was running 5k back in year 7.
Whoops 5k @ 18 minuites.
>let me compare my self to an Olympian
Damn, trying to grasp that straw aren't ya? I'm sure you'll impress everyone in your neighborhood with your flashy gear.
You're times are pathetic, I'm still laughing at you thinking 18 minutes at 5k is anything to boast about.
Where do you live? i'd gladly have run with you in the city for a 25 km run.
lel, is such a thing even possible? I find myself having to cut down on my runs when I'm trying to maintain a caloric surplus. A mile is like 100 Calories.
Also, just try it out. I respect the leather clad bikers more than the squids in a t-shirt and flipflops doing burnouts and wheelies. That's not exactly technical maneuvering. If you want to get the best times on the track you need proper motorcycle gear. Running isn't quite as intense, but I value my comfort, and they definitely aid with recovery and probably help some with speed and fatigue during the run too. I wear silk glove liners when it's cold and on my bike, and I wear sweat wicking material when I run. Even if you could beat me wearing jeans and a tee shirt what does that really prove? I'm way more comfortable. When it comes to e-peen I care more about my lifts than my pace anyway. Do you at least bandaid your nipples on marathons, or is that too fancy pants for you too?
So you'll wear a gas mask just in case Saddam Husein attacks, something which undoubtedly hinders performance while offering no benefits, but you scoff at people who use performance enhancing clothing beyond footwear?
I'm guessing you picked up running because you got tired of the short bus running late.
>lel, is such a thing even possible?
Take a look in the mirror.
>If you want to get the best times on the track you need proper motorcycle gear.
The road isn't the rack, get it through your thick head, i also mentioned the people who wear complete suits that cannot ride yet try to boast otherwise. In a first world country, we have the options to not be an attention-whore and buy two-piece leather suits, or stick with the conventional Kevlar pants and leather jacket / gloves.
>I'm way more comfortable.
Who's to say I'm not as comfortable as you are in your over-priced gear?
>I'm guessing you picked up running because you got tired of the short bus running late.
Nope, been running all my life, cross country, marathons, add in sports such as soccer, cricket, baseball, and swimming to the list of active sports i did regularly.
Trying to grasp the straw but still losing.
>Something which undoubtedly hinders performance while offering no benefits, but you scoff at people who use performance enhancing clothing beyond footwear?
I cant speak for low-test like yourself, but I've noticed with my gas-mask training especially 10+ km runs my lungs have improved a and so have my times when it comes to running without one.
I won't be stopping, and actually I'll be running the next 23km marathon here in Melbourne with one.
>wear cotton knit balaclava with beanie on top of that because negative degrees
>wear safety shades because job requires it
>wear black coveralls
Everyone said I looked like a terrorist. I only dressed that way at work though. I'm not too autist to do it in public.
That's cute, quickly jumping ship[ because you've literally got nothing else to say. Got to jump on that Australian are trolls for one putting you back in your place.
Seems to me you suck harder then a tight lipped prostitute. And please for further down the line don't pretend you run.
Is that an excessive amount?
We're not talking about gilded toilet paper. Clothing is something you wear everyday. It's not something disposable, or even a luxury like a high end watch or stainless steel sex toys, it's the most utilitarian thing you'll ever own.
>you aren't a real running because you don't run in designer running clothes that Olympians wear
Lel, if anyone is pretending it's you. You wear $300 dollar shoes but just wear any old shirt and pants to run in. You wear a gas mask, but a bottle of water or compression garments seem like science fiction to you. The stereotype came to exist precisely because your kind are all shitposters.
Do you think it makes you manly to do things wrong? If you want to continue running like a retard then knock yourself out, the others are just trying to improve your running experience. Fuck them for being passionate about their hobby and wanting to help another person they believe is a fellow runner though right? The way you talk shows you have a lot to learn. A lot of e-statting, but nothing about form, technique, or gear, beyond le placebo army man mask and "my jeans beat ur running clothes any day 1v1 me faggit".
THE ALARM HAS SOUNDED REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-
FOR TO LONG WE HAVE BEEN QUIET.
You are literally still whining like the phony you are. If you run on concrete for any length of time it's wise to actually buy proper running shoes that will protect your joints and things like your knees. 300$ is nothing for something that will protect your legs and knees. It's a very wise investment.
Your whole argument so far has been;
>Professionals wear it
>I hate sweat on my body, and i want it to suck my sweat up
It seems your tampon has been dislodged mate. I'm as comfortable in my tight fitting shirt, shorts, and when it's cold, pants, jumper/jacket and balaclava.
Not all of us are attention queens that need to tell everyone around us we are like so "serious" about running. Unlike some. People like you make us look bad.
Think about it in real life terms. I wear red wing boots to work. My coworker buys a walmart special that fucks his body up, and he has to buy a new pair every year. At most mine need resoling. Over the years mine are cheaper and better in every way. Clothes are utilitarian, and it's better to go with the superior and cheaper option over the shitty more expensive option. It's not excessive until you start getting into the designer and fashion shit that are like $1000+. Even then some artisan cobbler made shit could be around that price and still worth it because it will last you your entire life, only needing resoling, and it is made to fit your foot exactly.
You don't understand. Why not just run barefoot or in stilettos if you don't give a shit about running?
And the clothes don't suck sweat up, that's what cotton and wools do. The clothes being discussed itt wick the sweat, quite the opposite of sucking. I'm not aware of any uses for what we call tampons in running, so I guess it's a 3rdworldism, like how bongs calls cigarettes 'fags'.
My whole argument is running is fun and I want to enjoy it more. Professionals wear running shit because they are professionals and need to have top performance, it's literally irl min/maxing. If you don't mind sweat sitting on the skin and don't care about the other benefits then continue wearing whatever is on the floor closest to you.
Just don't pretend you're some ultra 1337 hxc running man because you don't wear anything but the running shoes. You obviously aren't as comfortable because you've never compared the two. If you had then you wouldn't post such blatant lies.
>You don't understand. Why not just run barefoot or in stilettos if you don't give a shit about running?
You do know if you actually went to a marathon, you'd noticed the basics of what people wear are usually;
>Singlet with shorts and runners / beanie.
>For women, it;'s usually compression shorts/pants, and a singlet, or single + shorts
I guess because they aren't wearing your BDSM looking attire they are now suddenly phony runners and not worthy enough.
I'll say it again, you have dislodged your tampon.
Run 4-5 days a week. I've got a ton of gyakusou. It's all i wear. If you're interesd end uk is having a sale right now.
I like physical fitness and fashion. They're not mutually exclusive. I don't get what this deranged anon's problem is m
>It's all i wear. If you're interesd end uk is having a sale right now.
I was just curious, personally don't give a fuck about that sort of stuff I'm fine with my gear, did use comprehension shorts when i was playing soccer but that was for another reason. And not because i was allergic to my sweat.
You keep saying tampon but you haven't actually told us what that means yet. Remember, this is an american website. We know bogan and abo and that's about all we know of your culture.
>compression shorts/pants, and a singlet
So... They basically wear exactly what we've been talking about in this thread? I can't speak from experience, but the guy on the left doesn't look like he just came back from a bdsm convention to me. He looks like a runner. Or do fun runs not count because running can never be fun or have running clothing involved? I enjoy the black light runs and mud runs as much as I do trail running.
>You keep saying tampon but you haven't actually told us what that means yet
Spread your legs and watch what falls out.
>So... They basically wear exactly what we've been talking about in this thread?
Except you haven't mentioned comprehension clothing you stupid cunt, and it's usually only women that wear that sort of stuff especially when it comes to marathons. Men usually always stick to shorts and a singlet.
Seek help mate, you are beyond pathetic.
What brand are they? I wore the cheapy shoes when I first started working, but they started falling apart after about a year, and my ankles and back were in terrible pain by the end of the shift. It's blue collar so pain is just a fact of life, but it's much better with a proper pair of boots. Blue collar is a high paying gig anyway, so you can afford to pay $0.12 a day on footwear with a good pair of boots around $300. Look at it as preventative maintenance. I'm sure you know how useful PMs are in our line of work. Your body is prone to wear and tear too. Don't be the guy with pain pills and a cane at only 50 years old.
And those are only the posts explicitly stating compression. Every other post discussing running clothes except for yours are discussing compression clothing. Why are you so butthurt over someone wearing clothing designed for running while running anyway? Did the track kids used to pick on you in high school?
Anon from earlier. All those marathoners are wearing tech fabric. Not a regular t-shirt like you were ranting on about. It also depends on the weather obviously. It was below freezing when I went running today.
Also you truly have an insufferable personality. Do people tell you that irl?
I just looked a to your posts, and you seem like a desperate kid after the attention. You also reek like a phony. Thank you for showing me all your post, especially this one; >>25734473
What a gigantic faggot.
Except i didn't compare them to me, or say anywhere a t-shirt you get from a random store is the same as the singlets they are wearing. Even then they are not fancy, and they aren't anything like the compression clothing. They are simple singlets and shorts you gt at a basic A-mart that cost 30 dollars.
Good try, princess.
