August is just around the corner, Tribe! It's time to flaunt our midriffs for at least 3 workouts of 30 minutes or more/session in the month of August. NOTE: click-a-holics, don't click COMPLETE until 3 shirtless workouts in August if you take this challenge! Take off that T-shirt and feel the breeze. Don't forget sunblock and your cover-up after your workout--wouldn't want to burn or chill out!
Dare to Bare in August Challenge rules
- Peel off that T-shirt for at least 30 minutes while working out at least 3 times in PUBLIC during the month of August (that's a minimum of 3 daring barings)...c'mon, you've worked hard on those abs and back muscles!
- Comply with your local public decency/gym dress code requirements--not always culturally appropriate, so be respectful.
- Any public workout counts--running, riding, gym, gardening, beach volleyball, water sports--but use your sunblock and bring a cover-up in case you get chilly or still have some shreds of ego left to deal with after 30 minutes ;)
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“I usually run in nothing but a pair of shorts....I have had fellow runners call me the convenience store nightmare ... no shoes, no shirt....”

Meghan L OK, I found a great way to get attentive customer service next time you go shopping! Are you tired of the sales clerks acting like you're invisible when you need help? Try this!
Recently I went to the supermarket after yoga. When I left the house I was wearing running shorts, a sport bra top, & a hoodie, with my flip-flops in my tote along with my mat. When I got to the grocery store it was really warm outside & I was still warm from yoga, so I left my hoodie & flip-flops in the car. Grocery shopping barefoot with a bare midriff was quite the attention-getter. There must've been at least a dozen store clerks asking me if they could help me find anything! I was also more than a little surprised that no one told me that I couldn't be in the store without shoes, though.
Yes, I realize that in the near future when it gets sub-freezing here I'll need to try a different angle.
Paul W No pictures of this extraordinary event, but running bare I did. I should have remembered sunscreen, but it still turned out to be a good run. Based on some of the looks, I must be looking okay or there was someone behind me. =) Thanks for the challenge.

Meghan L To do this challenge I ran & worked out in shorts, yoga pants, leggings, etc., with a sports bra top, & I went swimming in my bikini.
Concurrent with this challenge I did some yoga pose challenges, some barefoot running challenges, & and the Do A Handstand In Water challenge.
You're right! It was fun! Hope you all enjoyed this one as much as I did!
Meghan L We went to Devil's Lake on Sunday. I wore my bikini when we went swimming, & we had some underwater handstand contests. So a point for this one & an encore for the Do A Handstand In Water challenge.
Meghan L Did my yoga in running shorts & a sports bra, so I got in some pose challenges while working on this one.
Jessica L I am excited about this one HAHA I will rock my sports bra but not at gym only running. Don't want that much attention :>))))))))
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
