Last week, I got this tweet from Molly:
You see my response, and I've stuck with those for this cold winter. (They're saying it's the coldest winter since 1984. And yes, I've been doing a lot of running inside, but I've done my share of outdoor running, too.)
Below is a post from last year when I got my "Sugoi Wind Boxers" from my wife for Valentines Day - the post was called "My Wife Loves My Penis, and She Proved it on Valentine's Day:"
It's true. For Valentine's Day, my wife got me this:Those are windproof shorts to keep Capt'n Happy warm and... well... happy. I've frozen my penis on a few runs in the past. (Here's the story of the first time it happened.) I've learned to wear a few extra layers down there on any run 25 degrees or colder. But now I don't have to.Since then, I've worn the shorts for a few runs. They're tight, warm, super soft, and fantastic. I've had to ONLY wear those under my running pants even in windy 15 degree weather - nothing more. I love them. And I love that my wife is looking out for my manhood.
p.s. I had about a million other titles worked up for this post. Many were full of innuendo. Some were super naughty. Some were down-right dirty. But I took the high road and went with a clean, straight-forward, anatomically correct title. I guess I'm getting a little soft in my old age. But not around my hot wife.
**ba dum tss**
Well, since THAT post nearly a year ago, I've worn them many many times. They are 10x better than Under Armour shorts. I still like my Under Armour for under running shorts when it's 30-45 degrees, and I still wear my Under Armour under pants when it's in the teens, but I wear these Sugoi Wind Boxers when it's anywhere around 0 degrees. On the coldest, windiest runs, I still need a BIT more help, but these things are great.
