A group of my friends and I signed up to run in the first Cupid's Undie Run on Valentine's day weekend.
Ever heard of it? Me neither but a friend who works for the Cavs brought to my attention and at the time, it sounded like an awesome idea until we had to take our clothes off and actually run a mile. In 25 degrees. With flurries flying.
As described from the site, it's "a fundraiser, a party and a mile-ish in your bedroom best" to support the Children's Tumor Foundation.

The party started around noon with everyone gathering in a tent to drink, dance and even get waxed if needed on stage and do a Cleveland/cupid's version of the Harlem shake (not captured on video) before we stripped down to run through the streets of Tremont.

To say it was freezing is an understatement as I couldn't feel my hands and arms at least for a good hour after the 8 minute run. It was beyonddddddddd freezing even with my leggings and Lululemon vinyasa scarf and as you can see, guys were running in just briefs and girls in bras and underwear. (I seriously couldn't imagine that.)
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to buy stock in Kiehl's Creme de Corps to soothe my windburned skin.
