I have had this doubt for quiet some time now.
The place where I live is quite hot & humid. So, I wear cotton briefs always, including while running.
While I run the half marathons or while I go for long distance cyclings, my briefs really get wet. I have got used to this.
But then I am going to run my first full marathon next month and then the subsequent month, my first full Ironman.
I definitely can't use the cotton briefs for the long events.
Now my questions is, is there any special briefs for these purpose or is it not required to wear briefs at all?
