I go a lovely shade of purple when I run anyway. Looks miles better than foundation


lol LB....running in heat saves on blusher , ie saving money

As personal preference I wear makeup to work because simply put, I look a great deal better with than without and I work in a busy organization with lots of customers coming in and out all day. They don't need to be confronted by someone who looks like she's been at the bottle all morning.

BW, me too, i think if i wore NO makeup the marshalls would have to have shock therapy treatment

when i said i wear make up to run, i dont wear foundation etc in 90 degree heat-no need because of my Bondi tan....ahem +1 again

 Never mind make up, how can people run with jewellery on?  A necklace or bracelet banging away with every step would drive me insane.

I'm sure when I watched Nell McAndrew being interviewed on the telly after running 2:54 at VLM this year she had makeup on. Eyeliner, mascara etc. None of which was all down her face. And she's quite tanned. AND blonde. She might even have had a necklace on! Shocking!

I have a 'lucky' bracelet thingy I wear on all my ultras, along with my 'lucky' nail varnish

LLB -

I can't imagine jangly bracelets are any more annoying that the water that sloshes around in a camelbak when you run, or the guy (or gal) that is continually hacking/snotting/coughing to clear nasal passages etc etc ...

Interesting how this thread is evolving ... tolerant lot aren't we


There is a woman in a neighbouring club who gasps "Yes Yes Yes" towards the end of a race, usually for  the last mile or so.

If you squeeze the air out of the Camelbak bladder before doing it up, it doesn't slosh.

Or take your family out to wait with the water, no sloshing then!

I pretty much feel that way about jewellery all of the time. I have 20+ ear piercings but I wear studs, never dangly things and I don't like necklaces, bracelets or rings either. And apart from using my Garmin for training, I don't wear a watch either.

I also rarely wear any make-up apart from waterproof mascara - just to take the bare look away and waterproof so it never runs or smudges. Can't ever remember putting it on specifically to race but if it was already there I wouldn't specifically remove it either.

I work with a few girls who wear so many layers of face paint they actually look like clowns. To me, make-up is supposed to be like good plastic surgery. You're supposed to look fresh and healthy, not like you've had a lot of work done or like you're covered in slap!

Nah.  I don't wear make up.  Maybe once a month or so when I go out.  Make up for running??? Why???  I am hardly looking my best.. not a  lot to enhance... and why would I be arsed??

I ALWAYS wear make-up. I don't cake it on. I wear the same make-up running as I do going to work. Just minus lippy. Not self conscious (if I was, I wouldn't be running in public for a start!). Just like it.

But then I'm a lesbian.
