Body Shame, Self Acceptance, and Racing a Naked 5K


“Someone in our local running club posted a registration link in our Facebook group for a naked 5K

Self perceived body image is a fascinating and scary topic.  While there is no doubt in my mind that “body shaming” is an issue in our society, I think we are most guilty of shaming our OWN bodies, far, FAR more frequently than we pass judgment on others.   The saying “we are our own worst critics” rings so very true when it comes to appearances. Every little difference between our body and that of a Photoshopped model in a magazine is considered a flaw in our minds, magnified greatly, and perceived to be FAR worse than it actually is (if even bad in the first place)”

“I won freedom from ridiculous self imposed body shame”

“I will not subject myself to shame for my choices.  It’s a naked body. We all have them. Anything “sexual” about that picture is on your conscious, not mine”

These were all positive quotes about naturism from the full article:
