HBO Q&A w/Bare Buns Fun Runner Shenelle Kraack …

You can read's Shenelle's column about her Bare Buns Fun Run here. You can read a column by Tim Bross of The Inlander about his Bare Buns run here.

DFO: So how are people treating you in St. Maries since you ran the Bare Buns Race naked and your column about the race appeared?
SK: People poke fun at me and my parents. They'll say they don't recognize me with my clothes on. The only person who had a problem with it is my boyfriend's grandmother, who took offense at it. She's 93 years old. But my boyfriend's parents and my parents laughed about it. Most folks said: You're braver than I am. I like our little town. People are open and familiar.

DFO: Did you see much "bad naked" (as Jerry Seinfeld would say)?
SK: There was plenty of bad naked. I don't consider myself bad naked. But I'm not Adonis naked either. The majority of people were over 50, like retirement age. I only saw two other girls who were around my age (26).

DFO: What is the biggest problem with running three miles naked?
SK: Everyone talked about chafing. They had to powder up before the race. After I was done, I wanted to get something to eat, but I didn't have any money on me b/c I had no pockets. I had to walk back to the car to get money every time.
