Coach Joe English
So every once in awhile I get a question from a reader that requires a follow-up question from me. Before jumping in to answer their question, I need to probe a little to understand what they’re really asking. This week I received a fairly straight-forward question that deserved just such a follow-up. The question comes from a runner that we will call “Suzie” from a place called “Little Rock”.
“Coach Joe, do I need to wear underwear under my shorts when I run?”
Follow-up: “Why do you ask Suzie?”
“My underwear gets all stinky, brown and nasty, so I wondered if I need to wear them.”
I’m so glad I asked. I thought that she might have been asking something really gross. OK, Suzie, here’s the answer to your question.
