This is so strange - I went running yesterday afternoon, and it was still quite warm. I wear split-side running shorts, of a fairly modest length, so they do brush th etops of my legs (but no chaffing). Well, I had to stop my run, because *all* of my legs got incredibly itchy. I think it had something to do with the heat - but it was just so weird. Like the brushing of my shorts against the tops of my legs somehow spread to all of my legs. Has this ever happened to anyone else, and if so, what did you do?
I also just received a pair of mail-order shorts from Sweatshop, which I was about to return as they are *quite* short, and a bit on the small side in general. But perhaps now I should wear them, as there is sure to be less material touching my legs (if any, oh they are so short!!).
