Getting used to wearing a running skirt in public

In order to be able to wear a running skirt in a proper race I needed to get used to being seen in it in public. Obviously, as with all such things, you don't go from never having done it to doing it in a town of thousands of people. And so I start by running my training runs in the skirt, initially on very remote routes where I run the risk of seeing three or four people, to increasingly popular routes where I could be seen by a lot more dog walkers and walkers.

As I am seen by more people, and I experience no hostile or negative reactions, so my confidence grows. Smirks and smiles from women are a reward.

Here are some photos from some of my runs. As you can see, I have been pretty confident on some of my training runs. It is however very different doing a training run where you may be seen by twenty people and then doing a marathon with a field thousands of runners and their supporters. Which is why I hid it more during the marathon (see my previous post).

Running skirt and bra in marathon

So, I did my last marathon of the year, and I wore my running skirt. I 'cheated' a bit by wearing a long t-shirt and also wore my race number low down front. This meant that from the front it was hidden a bit. I'm not sure how it looked from behind. I did have a few runners who overtook me give me a glance as they passed, but no one said anything.

I didn't wear wet look leggings this year (this is the run that I traditionally do that) as I felt that was too much for me to handle. But I did wear womens 3/4 leggings and you do not see a lot of men wearing 3/4 leggings.

Caught in public in a bra!

First, I did have my sissy weekend, and I do have some photos, I will write a blog entry about it soon.

But I just had a great experience that I want to share.

I did a marathon where I wore a bra under my kit. The  weather was appalling, it rained a lot! I got back to my car and wanted to change into dry clothes. I was parked in some on road parking with the parking bays at right angles to the pavement. As a result my car was facing the pavement.

I looked left and right, apart from one women approaching from my right, but a fair way down, there was no one. I quickly removed my t-shirt. Under that I had a long sleeved Nike running top (womens of course). I took it off but one sleeve snagged on my running watch!

I pulled at it but it was stuck! I looked up and the woman was easily visible and judging by the smile on her face, she had seen me! She was walking just to the right of my car, nothing to obstruct her view of me. In a bit of a panic I crossed my trapped arm across my chest to try hide the cups of the bra. Of course the bra straps were easily visible. I felt a bit like how I imagine a woman must feel, arm  trying to hide her breasts from a stranger.

I did that typical thing of don't make eye contact. Why do we do that? It's almost like we think if we can't see them they can't see us.

I looked up as she walked away to the left and she was just turning her head from taking another glance at me, the smile on her face was huge! No doubt she'd seen me.

You know what? I loved it! I wished I had had more confidence and tried to make eye contact.

Warming up for my sissy weekend

As I've booked a full leg, arm and underarm wax on Saturday I thought I'd get my chest and 'hollywood' area waxed so that sfter my Saturday waxing I would be hairless. I booked an intimate waxing.

Twenty minutes before the appointment I waswaiting outside a small shop. I decided to have some fun and went in to the shop. There was a young woman behind the counter, bored and reading a magazine. I got a pack of overnight sanitary pads and took them to the counter. She looked at me before scanning them. She handed me my change with a slight smile and told me to enjoy my day. I smiled and thanked her.

I had my waxing,someparts of which were painfulI will admit.  When I was told to get on my knees and elbows (so my backside could be done) I felt so submissive ... it was fantastic.

On going in to the room I was left alone to get undressed and was told to lay on the table and put the small towel over myself. But afterwards she stayed in the room cleaning up as I dressed. I had worn a pair of white, nylon, full panties (bought from Miss Discrete). I put them on and saw her do a doubletake as she saw them.

All in all it was a good day, a lovely little warm up. And as a bonus I am hair free, I look forward to wearing my chastity device being hair free to see if it is any more comfortable.

Next time I go for an intimate waxing, and there will be a next time, I will go into the same shop but this time I think I will buy a small tub of vaseline and a pack of tampons.

Some holiday running pics put into a sissy story.

When I am holiday in a place hundreds of miles from where I live I love to push the boundaries. One holiday we were in a remote area of Spain. I ran along a road that was pretty quiet, but not empty. On average I would be passed by 8 cars during a run. Over the course of the holiday most of the reactions were just curious stares, some laughs, two hoots. One car passed me a number of times during the holiday so that we got to recognise each other and we'd share a friendly, amused, wave.

The time for my annual sissy trip is approaching

For the past five years I have been going to an event in a town approximately three hundred miles from my house. This happens early November every year. It's a long day, starting with a 3 and a half hour drive, then the event and then a three and a half hour return drive.

Being so far from home I started having 'sissy adventures'. I'd do things that I'd love to do as a sissy. I started out by booking manicures and then show a 'lost bet' letter from my girlfriend which required me to have my nails painted in an obviously feminine colour. I started out by booking these things as the last thing before I drove home, but over time that has changed. My nails would get painted earlier and I'd then go panty shopping, making sure to keep my nails on display.

Last year I had a fantastic appointment at a beauty salon. Rather than do the lost bet thing, I just told them that I was a closet crossdresser and was going to start experimenting more in the privacy of my home. I had my nails done and my underarms waxed. The women at the salon were truly wonderful about it. Here's a picture from that appointment.

This year I have decided to go one step closer to a full sissy day. I sent the studio the following email:


I suspect you might remember me, my name is Graham and I 'came out' as a crossdresser by having an underarm wax and my nails done early last November at your salon ? You were very nice to me and I felt totally at ease, thank you for that.

I come up to ++++++++++ every year for the ++++++++++++++++++++++++++ and this year is no different.

I am contacting you early as I don't know how quickly you fill up your bookings.

I was planning to drive back home from ++++++++++ as the 'female me'. So I was hoping that if you were to agree I'd enter your salon as Graham and leave as Melanie :-). I was hoping for a full leg, full arm and underarm wax, do my nails and finally help me with my make up (my attempts at that are still very amateurish).

I would be looking to do this as the last booking of your day (I plan to spend the morning at ++++++++++++++). I don't know how long all that would take but an appointment at or after 1 pm?

Would you be prepared to do this? If it's just a step too far let me know, I do understand.

If however you are happy to do this could you let me know what time the appointment would be and how much it would cost?

Again, I do realise how unusual this request is and, as I hope you realised from my last appointment, I am able to laugh at myself so if you do agree to this I hope that we can have an easy going appointment and have a laugh ot two in the process.

Thanks for your time. Graham

I received the following response:

Hello! Nice to hear from you again, hope you're doing well! Yes that's absolutely no problem. I don't suppose you can come in any earlier than that as we close at 3 on Saturdays and we'd be pushed for time if the appointment was at 1!

And so I have my appointment booked.

At this stage I decided to extend my weekend and I have booked into a hotel. Checking in to the hotel will be interesting but as a sissy I look forward to the experience. And on Sunday I shall do a long run as Melanie before driving back home en femme, making sure to fill my car with petrol at least twice.

PU and leather look shorts

I am often jealous of the variety of materials from which womens clothing is made. A while back I figured that I wanted to wear clothing made from somematerials like PU and faux leather. is a good source of a wide variety clothing at reasonable prices. Be aware though that it often lacks in quality. I bought a number of shorts that I would then run in. I love the plastic/leather smell of these clothes when they are new. Also if you wear them on a hot day they make you sweat and that seems to make the smellstronger. They also cling to you. When I wear them while running I love the feel of them, and some of them make a noise as I run. Here are some photos of the shorts I have bought and worn on runs. It is exciting running past women while wearing them as they are obviously not running shorts and I'm sure that observant women would notice that.
