Runners with Long Hair
Running is a tough sport made for tough people. Runners area free spirited group of individuals and one way of showing their rebelliousness can be interpreted through their physical appearance. Growing your out long is certainly one way of doing this.
Let me put it this way; when you “toe” the line at a race, look to your side and see a long haired man, you are intimidated.
Running with long hair can be somewhat of a challenge. You constantly need to tie it up just to keep it out of your face. Along with that,you’re facing negative factors like running with more weight and less wind resistance. So, if you’re seriously looking to PR you might want to buzz it off or keep it short. That being said, props to you guys who do it.
You don’t see a whole lot of male runners these days with along hairstyle. I could see why though. In the sport of running where every second counts, who’s willing to give up a few precious seconds for some style points?
