Target Gift Card Giveaway – C9 for Champion

Exercise Gear Gift Card Giveaway

But while I’m busy – I have a great giveaway for you…

Apparently someone at Target heard my running capris broke and contacted me to get some running clothes from their line. As you may know from my Summer Running Gear post – I’m already a fan of the C9 for Champion gear so I was all about it.

Target has gotten the hint that women want cute exercise gear so they have a lot of options that are inspired by some of the fancier brands out there.

See, running skirt with ruching up the sides?

They didn’t have the longish tight shorts I loved in the past, but they did have these mesh shorts with a longer pair under. Fight the chub rub!

I’m pulling them up a bit here, the shorts on the bottom don’t show this much.

Vegas doesn’t think I need anymore sports bras though… Luckily, he is not the boss of me and I do what I want!

They even make special underwear to workout in now! Hmmm. I don’t wear chonies under my workout gear, do you? All my running shorts have something built in and/or would be weird to wear with chonies. IMAG5142 800x450 thumb Target Gift Card Giveaway   C9 for Champion

Would these be considered a marathong?

By the way… I am catching an early flight out of LAX this morning so the car is picking me up at 3:45am. Ouch.

I am traveling to NYC as part of my friendship with Sabra – the #1 hummus company in the world! <- That is a fact I verified after years of hummus eating.

Remember last year I went to their plant and saw how they made the hummus? That was awesome.

Comments

  1. Megan says

    Ha-yep I wear undies! I usually wear workout capris and they don’t have anything built in, without undies I’d feel naked!

  2. Anne says

    Rarely … only with 1 pair of shorts that doesn’t have it’s own lining. Everything else is lined, layered, and fitted.

  3. says

    I always wear underwear when I run and workout…but sometimes after a hot sweaty run i sometimes regret that pantie choice! hah

  4. says

    To be honest – whether I wear underwear while working out totally depends on how many clean pairs I have left/when I plan on doing laundry again :)

  5. says

    I do if I am wearing a skort … but not always when I’m wearing shorts with underwear inside. It really depends on how many clean pairs I have left! LOL!

  6. Tina says

    I totally wear undies! I remind my friends not to wear thongs when they run and one friend found out the hard way why. :/

  7. Anna says

    I love their stuff! So cute. I love that you say chonies. When I lived in Arizona I heard it all the time and its way cuter sounding than underwear.

  8. says

    no- all my stuff doesn’t need it but I could sure use a pay of shorts that don’t chafe

  9. Alycia Wilson says

    I love Target’s workout gear, esp the sports bras. I usually wear underwear because I like running in capris. Maybe I’ll give the marathong a go and report back.

  10. says

    Monica, I am so glad you said this about the unders. :) I never knew if I was supposed to… with linings I usually don’t. If it doesn’t have a lining, I wear them.

    Would love to win this!!

  11. says

    This post was about two of my favorite things in the whole wide world- Sabra + C9 gear. I am seriously obsessed with both!

    I do wear underwear, I honestly never considered not wearing them even though most of my shorts have built in things as well. Interesting.

  12. Natalie P. says

    Yes I do wear underwear unless its one of my “fancy” running shorts with built-in underwear, then I go commando! Thanks for hosting this giveaway :)

  13. Kinsley says

    I run in capris, so I always wear underwear… never thought to look at “sporty” underwear, though! may have to check those out!

  14. says

    I definitely wear underwear when I wear shorts that have the lining. Whenever I’ve thrown on the shorts with out underwear, I just feel….naked. I’m sure id love it if I gave it a chance. I realized that I have to wear a thong–I don’t get wedgies while running. If I wear my bikini style underwear, then I’m always readjusting them on the run…awkward!

  15. Monica R says

    Never wear undies! Always just use the built in… But I LOVE the target workout clothes and this is coming from a girl that has a closet full of lululemon. Target now even has a fancier line of pants that look exactly like lululemon except half the price!!

  16. Sherrie says

    Love the C9 tops and shorts. I still need a little more support in the sports bras arena, so I don’t use those for running. I really want one of their visors too!

  17. Laura says

    I have seen way too much on some ladies….so, I do wear underwear. It is always awkward…do you tell someone you can see through their pants?

  18. Tracy says

    Yes, I do. My question: why don’t you? My running gear is pretty nasty after a workout. I think it’d be worse without.

  19. Sarah F. says

    I’m a no undies while exercising kind of girl- although I used to wear things at the fun and my friends thought that was weird!

  20. Lee says

    No to undies…I hate when I can see the panty line on other people through their capris! Looks so uncomfortable. I don’t wear anything see through either!!

  21. says

    I seriously LOVE Target workout gear! It’s some of my favorites that I own and pretty much the only place I get sports bras. Some of this may or may not have to do with my current financial state, but regardless, i DO love me some Target! ;)

    And yes, I DO wear undies with my workout gear.

  22. says

    I can never get enough workout gear lately! Those shorts looked super cute. And I love that they have anti-chub rub shorts underneath. I think I might go try to find those this weekend….

  23. Melissa says

    I used to always wear underwear under my workout clothes and since I workout during my lunch break at work, I would usually bring an extra pair to change into after I cleaned up. One day I forgot so I went commando and havent looked back since!

    BTW, I LOOOOVE C9 at Target!!

  24. Robyn says

    Yes when I go to the gym for strength/functional training and No when I go running because my running shorts all have built in panties.

  25. Jess says

    Love Target and have love Champion since the teal sweatshirts that everyone own when I was in middle school. You had to have one or you were soo left out :)

  26. Krista N says

    Love C9! And nope, I don’t usually wear underwear with my gym clothes because they normally have something built-in!

  27. Sara says

    I always do!! Target always has the best stuff, which is super dangerous on the wallet but of course I always “need” everything I purchase ;)

  28. Alexandra says

    I do cause I usually reuse my running shorts and I feel gross wearing them without underwear two or more times:)

  29. Anastasia says

    I go commando under my shorts or skirt. They all have a liner so I am comfortable in my commando-ness.

  30. Deb says

    Yes and No.
    If I’m going for a run from work, and I just need to do a quick wardrobe change, then yes .. I leave them on.
    If I’m starting “fresh”, then “no”. I prefer not wearing them.

    Wow, I love the pile of bras you got. I need to get some colorful ones. Mine are all white (not so white anymore). I just love those shorts with the tights underneath. I like tights, but my hubs doesn’t like the “look” of them – ahem.

    It would be great to win this giveaway! Thanks for sharing. :-)

  31. Daphne says

    I don’t wear underwear unless I’m wearing shorts which is a rare occasion. And I love the workout gear at Targets – that’s my go to place always!

  32. Greta Coan says

    Cute gear! I always wear underwear, but I tried wearing it with a pair of new shorts that have it built in and felt really uncomfortable!

  33. Ashley W says

    I don’t with my shorts as they have built in underwear, but my capri tights do not so I do wear underwear with them.

  34. jess says

    is there any other place to shop besides target? C9 sports bras are the best!!! and i really want to try out a running skirt. i’m usually a capris wearing gal.

  35. Karin says

    I always wear undies, I think I only have one pair of shorts with lining. It would feel wierd not to wear them! Thanks for the post, I was not aware of the C9 line and will definitely look into it. Hopefully with a gift card ;)

  36. says

    I do like target’s workout clothes too, but i definitely NEED underwear when I workout–feels too weird without them. I’d love special workout undies though!

  37. Kaitlyn says

    I recently found out that you don’t have to wear underwear, which was a revelation. so freeing (uhh when you work out – the rest of the time underwear is a good idea.)

  38. Kate says

    I always wear them under my running tights. I’m afraid I’ll rip them somehow and then be naked underneath!

  39. Jennie Howk says

    No way no undies! Everyone thinks it’s weird, but I think their running wedgies and panty lines are weird.

  40. Caroline says

    I would love some new workout gear for the summer! I love target’s long workout tanks and sports bras!

  41. Monica says

    C9 are my favorite sports bras (besides Moving Comfort which I can only afford ONE of), and VS Yoga are my everyday, but I need to change that up.

  42. Kathleen says

    I totally don’t wear underwear with running shorts either-it would be like wearing 2 pairs! nada too uncomfortable!

  43. Kim says

    Ummm, yeah! Never thought about not… but would be willing to ditch and go commando if it will help me run faster!

  44. michelle w says

    I love C9! I was in target this weekend and had to make a real effort not to buy their stuff! I always where undies, i feel uncomfortable w/o them.

  45. Chris Cossairt says

    Most definitely to wearing underwear under my running gear. I wear wicking ones that are wonderful.

  46. Megan G says

    Of course I do! Although I strongly dislike when I’m doing a Russian twist or Superman to Swimmers and get a sharp pain where my undies line is. Not cool!

  47. Nikki says

    Hope I win and I do wear undergarments–and Target please get the thongs away from the workout section. THANK YOU!

  48. Emily M says

    Yes, always. Have never had a problem doing so either, so don’t want to know if there is by going without. Adorable hoodie—gotta buy now!

  49. Julia says

    I don’t. It’s just so much easier to workout without worrying about anything riding up or bunching.

  50. Sarah G. says

    Love this giveaway!! And yes, I always wear underroos when running – those little “built in briefs” skeeve me out. I also ALWAYS, ALWAYS get my running underwear from Target!

  51. Ashley W. says

    Yes I do! I also love target’s workout gear. It’s super cute and affordable! Can’t be mad at that!

  52. Rebecca says

    Lace every time. Super comfy but stay in place…and cute. My sister is a marathoner and she has told me that is her strategy too.

  53. ashley says

    I can’t go to Target without spending like $100 even when I only need $5 worth of stuff. I always get sucked into the workout clothes section and find something I have to have..

  54. Paula says

    I refuse to spend money on expensive clothes that will very quickly get sweaty and gross. I was super excited when I found C9 at Target last year! And I actually do need sports bras — I only have two that have survived my beatings.

  55. Melanie says

    I like to fly free when I’m sweating.. no underoos for this girl! Almost all of my workout clothes are C9. Love Target!!

  56. Carrie S. says

    I almost always do, but I would love some sort of special exercise pair that didn’t get so sweaty (tmi?).

  57. Megan says

    Undies sometimes- depends on the workout and the bottoms I want to wear. Love the workout gear from Target minus the sport bras- I don’t think they give you enough support. I like the girls to stay put!

  58. Meg says

    with my cycling shorts – yes! I have a couple nice pairs of under armour marathongs :) with everything else, no way. All my skorts and shorts have bloomers.

    Love C9 stuff!

  59. Laurel Poole says

    Heck no I don’t wear underwear with my workout clothes….I once advised the BFF, Julie aka PBFingers not to wear a marathong under her shorts during her bachelorette party Chicago Half….girl didn’t listen….you know what happened there. My husband thought it was so wierd that I don’t wear underwear under my workout clothes….he’s obvi not suffered as I’ve suffered. Commando for life!

  60. says

    I do wear underwear, depending on what I’m wearing (crop tights, shorts without anything built in), but if it’s run shorts then it’s commando. Which I guess isn’t commando since it has built-in underwear, but it feels like craziness to me.

  61. Kim says

    Always always always wear underwear!! Usually a thong, so you don’t see any lines in my running bottoms. I feel weird not wearing anything!! :)

  62. elizabeth reisner says

    I don’t when I’m running. I get wedged almost immediately. I wear compression shorts under my running shorts so that my running shorts don’t wedge either, lol.

  63. Anna says

    I used to always wear underwear no matter what I wore but not I am trying not to with my running shorts.

  64. Amy says

    I do! But I also never really wear the shorts with the built-in ones. Might be something to try if I win :)

  65. Laura B says

    I always wear drawers under my workout gear but a lot of my friends don’t and think it’s weird that I do! Love Target’s workout clothes!

  66. lindsey b says

    yep, I wear them — but I really need to invest in some better athletic-y ones that are made for working out!

  67. Johnna says

    I only wear my drawers if I’m wearing capris/pants. If my shorts have built in drawers, I don’t wear an extra pair underneath. I sweat enough as it is! Great giveaway – LOVE me some Target!

  68. Jennifer C. says

    I love the C9 line. The quality is great and the price is accessible to most. Thanks for the great giveaway!!

  69. Jenny says

    Yeah, I do, but it’s sometimes hard to find good undies that don’t chafe, ride up, or create extra lumpy bits.

  70. says

    I LOVE Target’s C9 line! I unfortunately don’t have a target in the town I live in now, so I will be stocking up this weekend when I had back to Minnesota! Hope you have a safe and FUN trip!

  71. Anna says

    Sometimes;)
    I recently bought a pair of C9 running capris with kind of a ruching up the sides. Super cute!

  72. cori maley says

    I’m converting to all shorts with built in undies, cause i’m tired of ruining all my nice pairs! No to the marathon, consider the chafing!

  73. Erin says

    Definitely don’t wear underwear. I get sweaty enough as is, I don’t need all of that bunching action too!

  74. says

    Always. Without, I feel would be a disaster. Dis-ass-ter? Hah, not really, but even just for moisture wicking I feel like I need that extra layer.

  75. says

    Only under tights. If the shorts have built in chonies.

    Fun fact: One way to say underwear in Portuguese is cuecas…pronounced like if you were a duck. Quackas!

  76. Rebecca says

    I always wear underwear under capris/pants/leggings (it creeps me out too much not to …) BUT I always buy shorts with built-ins and that’s so much more freeing!

  77. Becky says

    I wear underwear all the time when I work out! Awkwardly one of my kickboxing instructors used to make fun of some of the girls for having VPLs when they would wear tight workout capris. HELLO I’m working out here – I think the massive amounts of sweat dripping from my body will distract from the VPLs :)

  78. Rachel Costello says

    I do!!! I have not seen the shorts with the shorts underneeth at Target!!!

    I cant wait to go buy some. I have an addiction to Target almost as strong as my addiction to running!!!!

  79. Lauren says

    Always wear them! To echo some of the comments above, this way I can re-wear if they don’t get too sweaty!

  80. Corrinne says

    I always wear underwear and they have to be specific cut ones too that won’t ride up, nothing like having to stop mid-run to pick out a major wedgie. My running buddies think its so bizarre that I insist on wearing undies but I think its weird that they don’t.

  81. Jessie says

    Nope! I don’t wear underwear with my workout gear. I have tried it in the past and it is so annoying.

  82. Amy P says

    I’ve always worn underwear with my workout gear, I just never thought of not wearing it. I’m going to try going with no undies with some of my shorts with the built-ins to see how it goes.

  83. Erin D says

    I don’t wear undies if there’s a built-in liner, but otherwise yes! Target workout clothes are the best.

  84. Amy says

    I LOVE Target’s C9 line- and I actually bought the “performance” undies there- not the marathong though! ;)

  85. Jen A says

    For my running shorts, no since they are built in. For my C9 capris yes i use special running underwear since they dont have built in.

  86. says

    I always do, otherwise it feels like a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen! (I also am not at all ashamed of really visible panty lines while I work out.)

  87. Alison says

    Yes, I do and always have – don’t really have a good reason for it. Maybe I should test it out during my upcoming 1/2 marathon training. Sure would be a lot easier.

  88. Meggan says

    oh yes, totally do. I have had my pants rip during the army 10 miler, if I had no underwear on I would have put on quite the show =)

  89. Amber H says

    I really like the C9 brand. I usually do not wear any for running but I do for my boot camp and HIIT classes.

  90. says

    I am big fan a C9 gear from Target. My favorite capris are C9 and they have a small tear in them. Unfortunately I bought them a few years ago and can’t find the same ones so I will wear them until they falls apart.

  91. Annie says

    I love the C9 Compression sports bras! I wear undies about 50% of the time. Depends on which pants/shorts I am wearing that day.

  92. Laura says

    I do sometimes wear underwear under Capri pants, I’m afraid they’ll be see through if I don’t! But when I wear regular running shorts with the built in liner, I do not.

  93. zoe kimberly says

    Underwear, yes! Fav running underwear are these amazing Patagonia briefs. They are the lightest softest capeline material I have ever worn!

  94. Christine J says

    I have been running for years, and honestly didn’t know those “built-ins” exempted me from wearing choners! Hehe….most of the time I still do, even though I know I can get away with commando. Btw, do y’all really get good running support from those C9 sports bras? I’ve tried them on a couple of times and can’t imagine them being very sturdy…if you will. And I’m NOT big chested at all!

  95. says

    I’m so broke I don’t think i can even afford the rights to my first name! i want i want i want. also, Vegas knows best, he knows the true meaning of happiness and for him it doesn’t include all dem bras. but he’s also a boy so he doesn’t know anything.

  96. Jackie W says

    I’m with the Monican on this one, all of my gear has built in undies, so no. (So glad you call them chonies!)

  97. Johanna B says

    I wear Champion workout wear. Love Target. and yes, I do wear underwear under my capris and shorts.

  98. Rachel A. says

    I always wear underwear when working out. I never realized how many people don’t. Maybe I’ll run faster without them : )

  99. julie says

    I absolutely love C9 by champion. they fit without being too tight ( I like my work out clothes on the looser side) and of course target is the ish!! I would LOVE to win this gift card!!!

  100. says

    LOVE target workout stuff! :)
    Yeah, I just wear your normal every day stuff…I tend to move more toward the granny panties for races though…I’d get super annoyed if I had to keep adjusting while I’m trying to PR!

  101. leahk says

    Yes I ALWAYS wear undies when they don’t have built in ones… even just with shorts because it helps keep things last longer and smell fresher because less bacteria will live in the skirts/shorts :) (gross but true!)

  102. says

    & yes… I’m a undies wearer myself… unless I’m at home in my treadmill :) Who needs clothes at home!!! :) (I do by the way – that chub rub in effect would be horrible!)

    This has taken a horrible turn somewhere :)

  103. Martha says

    I don’t wear undies when I’m using running shorts with the built-in underwear, but if I’m wearing workout capris or other shorts then I definitely do!

  104. cassidy says

    I used to be anti-built undie shorts, but now that I run more, I am all about having them already in the shorts.

  105. Amanda says

    Is it just me or am I the only one that goes into Target for one thing and comes out with 100? Just sayin… ;)

  106. says

    I always wear underwear when I work out. I get kinda confused by the built in mesh ones, are they supposed to replace your undies?
    I do definitely need to get some exercise specific thongs so I don’t wreck my fancy lace ones (fancy = $5 or more).

  107. Ashley G says

    The bacteria and oils/moisture in our lady regions will break down fabrics at a more rapid rate, so I always wear undies with everything. It’s also more comfortable for me, I never worry about being inappropriate while stretching either.
    In less awkward news, I love C9.

  108. Denise Pupo says

    I do not wear underwear when I work out. I do own a couple of thong style New Balance ones, but I never used them.

  109. says

    I always wear underwear under my running shorts. Too scared to go without them. I discovered the C9 line the other day after reading your blog. It looks pretty legit and I think I’ve found some stuff that will work great for running and with my budget!

  110. Natalie says

    I only wear thongs when I workout! I HATE pantylines and the inevitable wedgie that comes with other styles of panties….though, if it’s been a while since I’ve done laundry and I’m out of thongs, you can bet your booty I’m going commando =P

  111. TrinaH says

    I love the built in underware feature on workout shorts. The Marathong has me wiggling in my seat, about .2 miles into 26.2 that would turn out to be a bad idea!

  112. Mary Beth says

    Yes I do, I actually have the C9 boyshorts next to the Marathong:) I have been debating running without…I just might have to try it.

  113. says

    Yes, I wear underwear! I’ve also never seen anything with underwear built in so I think it would be gross not to wear anything. Commando is just weird to me, but more power to those who don’t feel that way!!

  114. Lindsey A. says

    I don’t wear undies under my shorts or skirts, but I have some looser capris and bermuda style shorts that I do wear undies under. I’d love to try workout undies, do they help with sweat?

  115. Krystina says

    I always wear undies with my workout gear. I have a friend that gives me a hard time about it, but I’m so used to wearing them, that if I didn’t, I feel like I would feel naked.

  116. Collette says

    I’m so glad there are a lot of girls that wear underwear. I fit in that category. I would feel weird without.

  117. Danielle says

    I know it’s strange, but I always wear underwear under my running shorts, even the ones that have something built in. It just feels too weird if I don’t!

  118. Caitlin says

    Ooh Target gift card?? I love Target, and even more so now that we’ve moved to a city/town with very very limited shopping options…. The only ‘box stores’ within an hour are Target, Kohls, & Walmart (still a half hour trek), I was extatic when we found the Target. C9 makes up a good half if my running wardrobe, but could always make up more!!

  119. Sarah says

    Only when they don’t have a built-in pair. Most of my pants do not so I wear an athletic thong like what you show.

  120. says

    Funny, I saw those under wear recently too and thought they have underwear just for working out now? LOL Apparently your crotch now needs sweat wicking capability….

  121. emily says

    nope. no underwear while running. this is new, as one day i was complaining about all my butt sweat and always getting wedgies while running. my friend was baffled that i wore undies while running… so i tried no undies — feel the breeeeze! what a wonderful discovery! :)

  122. Michelle says

    I never wear “chonies” with my workout gear. Rule of thumb is that you wash them every single time!

  123. LT says

    I do, just because my capris don’t have an underwear gusset. But I can only wear thongs, because full coverage underwear gives me wedgies when I run.

  124. Kaelin says

    No underwear for me! I can’t stand having anything creep around while I am working hard and sweating. Fighting the chub rub, one underwear-free run at a time!

  125. tiffany says

    yes! i always wear something under. although i see your point, since there are those built in ones…hmm.

  126. says

    Love Target’s workout gear! And no, I go commando with my workout clothes. No digging anything out of my nether regions happening over here!

  127. says

    Yes I wear underwear! LOL But when I was running a lot, I started wearing thongs because I got tired of it riding up all the time.

  128. R says

    Sans underwear, every time. Bunchy, bunchy!

    Side note: I work at a “fancier” workout store, so when I find stuff that is cheaper that is close to the same quality as what I sell, I get excited. Target is getting closer, FYI!

  129. Gina says

    I am new to wearing shorts while exercising (just started this spring actually) and have one pair with the underwear built in. I LOVE THEM! But I actually have two pair (kinda like boy shorts) from Target that I like to wear with my other shorts. Unlike you, I need new sports bras something terrible. I hate the smoosh down, uni-boob so I need to actually try some on.

  130. says

    Great giveaway! I’ve been eyeing the fitness gear at Target for a while, such cute stuff, and I’ll need it all to motivate me for marathon training…

  131. says

    Nope, never have and don’t really see a need to even if it’s not built in. Besides it’s one less item of laundry plus I’m too cheap to buy running/workout specific underwear anyway.

  132. Victoria says

    Hi Monica!

    It depends on which activity I’m doing and the type of clothes I’m wearing! When I have lining/built in panties I don’t add underwear. Otherwise, I always wear them!

    Thanks for the chance to win the Target freebie!

    *I also have a running/hydration question: When you run, do you ever lose water weight followed by a water weight gain in the morning? I’m sure you are an expert now with hydrating for races, but I wanted to hear your input!

    Thanks!

    Nope, don’t wear them. It’s like wearing a pair of pants or a dress and seeing panty lines. Ack.

  134. Noelle says

    Sometimes I wear underwear….Sometimes I don’t. I don’t really have a rhyme or reason for when I do, just if I feel like it?? So I could probably use a pair or two of ‘active’ undies :)

  135. Leah R. says

    Depends on whether I’m planning on wearing my shorts/capris/pants again before washing them. How gross am I? :)

  136. Erika says

    I usually wear capris when I work out and they don’t have anything built in. I’d feel weird without them.

    I loooove Target!

  137. amanda says

    i do! but was wondering if i had to with shorts that had a liner? ha! newbie here.. came across your blog a few weeks ago and have been looking on it ever since!!

  138. Kristina m says

    If I wear capris I skip the underwear but if I wear shorts or a runners skirt I wear the underwear some reason I feel so weird and kinda naked.

  139. Kathi J says

    I’m a 50/50 girl. Sometimes to the undies, sometimes not so much. Depends on my mood and the lining of the athletic pants/shorts/skirt. They’re not a necessity. :)

  140. Rebecca says

    I just found a C9 tank that is a dead ringer for a Lululemon top that I love! $20 for the same top that normally costs $60? Excellent….

  141. Jamie says

    Nope! I never wear underwear when I run. Actually, I rarely wear them ever. :O I have a lot of cute pairs though! And I love, love, Target! Awesome giveaway. :)

  142. Amanda says

    I never wear underwear when I run either! All of my shorts have it built in. Thanks for the giveaway!

  143. says

    Yes – probably from years of wearing track uniforms that other people had also worn – even with washing I felt better with underwear between them and me!!!

  144. says

    I don’t know if I’m in the majority or minority because there are too many comments to read them all but I do wear underwear with my running shorts or capris. Most of the ones that I have don’t have anything built in but I feel weird if I don’t wear them.

  145. Kelsey says

    All my workout gear comes with the linings built in so I guess you could say I go commando?!?

    Who wants to be picking at wedgies the whole time anyways! How embarrassing haha!

  146. says

    I usually do. If its early in the morning and I’m just hitting our treadmill here sometimes I’ll go without. I love target’s C9 line, especially the bras.

  147. Allie says

    I do. I have some Moving Comfort underwear that doesn’t really show under the capri tights, which is nice.

  148. kelly says

    If I’m wearing capris i do, but go without whenever this is something built in, doubling up seems like it would be too bulky!

  149. Jessica J. says

    I always run with undies on (usually a non-marathong). I think running with the just built in undies feels weird.

  150. says

    ALWAYS.

    a) because I feel naked without but b) because… honestly, I don’t have quiiite enough workout clothes to fit with my not-so-frequent laundry schedule (besides for workout gear I own an embarrassing amount of clothes… which is what makes this work I swear!). so going without is a no!

  151. erica says

    none for me, though i do wear (and LOVE) target’s sports bras. i prefer them over every other brand i’ve tried

  152. Ivy says

    I wear undies with workout shorts/skirts even though they have them built in I just don’t like the idea of it I guess… I dunno I’m weird

  153. Kami says

    Target is one of the happiest places on earth for many reasons, and their workout gear might be at the top of that list! I just bought that running skirt with the rouched sides and love it!

    I definitely wear undies when I run :)

  154. Blair says

    Most of the time….but I’ll admit when I’m low on laundry, I’ll sometimes throw on a pair of capris and go commando. Eh it is what it is haha.

  155. Scott says

    For reference, I’m a guy.

    In the summer, no…just regular running shorts with the liner built-in.
    In the winter, yes, I usually do C9 Performance Boxers under running tights. Regular tights if it’s not too cold, thermal tights if it’s under ~20F.
    I love C9 stuff, probably 95% of my running gear is from Target.

  156. Becca L. says

    Yes! even with my running shorts, I “double up” because I always am afraid of some kind of wardrobe malfunction!

  157. Jen says

    I always thought I was weird but I’m not alone! I don’t wear panties…I don’t like wedgies and my shorts usually have them built in

  158. says

    I usually do. If it’s a slower (less sweaty!) run, underwear helps me extend the use of the shorts for 2 or more days. TMI? This is probably why I rarely have running buddies :)

  159. Michelle LM says

    I love me some c9, I wear them everyday to the gym and well I wear them even when I am not at the gym so I could use a few more options:)

  160. Jamie A. says

    For some reason I always wear underwear. The underwear thingy in running shorts is usually sort of loose and baggy, so I tend to prefer working out with them on.
