Runners here wear a lot of spandex. More specifically, male runners here wear a lot of spandex. I’m not saying that we don’t wear spandex. I’m guilty of it on occasion. We both wear bike shorts when cycling. However, most male runners in the US don’t wear spandex. If they do, they usually wear shorts over them. It is definitely something we aren’t used to seeing.
We’ve had great weather and I’ve been running along the lake. On one run, I counted 29 guys running in spandex shorts (I had to entertain myself somehow). If you come to run in Geneva and forget to pack your spandex, don’t worry. You can buy them everywhere.
