    No. However it does make it easier to move your legs. If its genuinely more comfy, fair does, but if you jus tdon't want to look 'gay' or 'trying too hard' then get the ******* skimpys on and man up.

    I can't respect people who run in 3/4 lengths. Shorts are ideal. Trousers are acceptable, in winter though. But 3/4 lengths - no - choose a proper length.

    I wear tracksters.

    They're a bit like leggings (and are full length with little stirrups for your feet) - not too tight (like tights), not too lose (like joggers).

    So you don't get chafing, nor do you look like a tit (i.e. like David Cameron).

    They're great for when it's cold, as they're not too loose but I've carried on wearing them into the summer.
    (During the summer I run at night, so it is a bit cooler).

    Just try a pair - shouldn't cost more than £15-£20 and they're designed for running.

    lol can't respect? 3/4 lengths are for people who prefere trousers but don't like clothing getting in the way around the foot/ankle area.

    Hmmm...I mentioned tracksters earlier and I sometimes wear a box underneath them because of the 'crotch bulge' (and I don't mean a hard on).

    Oh, lol. And I thought I was bad. :p:

    I've never had that problem, although I've been worried on occasion.

    I wear shorts! I have tried 3/4 lengths, but it's very irritating to run with! With shorts, you stay cooler, and, they feel a lot lighter!

    No one is going to judge you at the gym or anything - (just make sure you are the one fastest running and everyone just stares at you obviously thinking I wish I was that good. At this point it's like a big competition! :p:)
