You'll Never Believe Why the Police Are After This Jogger

He gives a new meaning to the term "running streak"

And we thought the guys already out running shirtless were bad! One jogger in Montreal has been spotted hitting the trails at a local park completely naked (albeit with shoes and a hat-even this dude thinks barefoot running is too hardcore). He does, however, have the decency to run at 4 a.m., when most people are probably still sleeping. Still, he's been spotted around five times now and has been caught on camera at least once. (Does that count as sexting?)

We have to admit, we're of two minds about this one. On the one hand, gross. On the other, we're kind of impressed-there's still snow on the ground up north! Also, doesn't the, um, bouncing bother him? We sometimes wince when we're in a less-than-supportive sports bra on a run, never mind letting things hang completely loose. (Find the Best Sports Bras for Every Body Type.) Maybe this is one time shrinkage is a good thing?

Though some of the people who've spotted Nude Dude worry their complaints aren't being taken seriously, the police say they've opened an investigation. If caught, the runner could face fines and even criminal charges for indecent exposure and exhibitionism. (Yikes!)

All of this made us wonder: is nude running a thing, or is it just this guy? (Maybe it's one of the 15 Next Big Fitness Trends?) Turns out, more people than you'd expect are into it. In fact, fans are even organized about it.
