Well, Why Not?, as this fellow so ably demonstrates:
Come on, what woman wouldn't want to date someone wearing the utilikilt? (Steve from Utilikilts.com)
As I mentioned in an earlier (and I might add, much ignored) entry, our spiritual-running guru, Mark, posted a few days ago about his deep desire to see women runners wearing these things. And some of us running chicks gave him some grief. Which then spiralled into quite a behind-the-scenes convo.
So we threw down the gauntlet. If Mark wants to see more running chicks in skirts, we invited him to walk a mile—or run five—in our moccasins, so to speak. Wear the skirt, Mark.
After much hemming, hawing and eating up of the precious e-mail airwaves, Mark has agreed to don the pinky-pink version and run an 8k—but only if he hears from 100 members of the RBF (or their friends and relatives) ... PLUS he is asking us to donate to our favorite charity, as payback. It's a win-win, people!
So, I'm asking you to get on over to Mark's place, and read all the details, and pledge (any amount of time or money) to the charity of your choice, so that you can see an actual, real live video of Mark, racing an 8k, looking something like this:

Whatever you do, though, don't be asking any questions about what he'll be wearing underneath.
For your own sake.
