    Folks running half naked for a cause. (Published Sunday, Feb 14, 2010)

    You have to be a little crazy to go for a jog in this weather. And you'd have to be downright nuts to run in nothing more than your tighty whiteys.

    But... nothing says "I love you" like jogging in your underwear on Valentine's Day weekend... right?

    Just think how romantic that is. Temperatures are in the low 30s, there's ice all around, and of course, there's the three-foot-high mounds of snow on every corner. Think of them as almost as good as chocolate-covered cherries!

    Nevertheless, Cupid's Undie Run got underway Saturday as the near-streakers took a two-mile trek around the Capitol before hitting some local bars. Some brave male runners donned Speedos, while others stuck with heart-printed boxers. 

    Many women went with the bra-and-undies option, some of the chillier ones worked tights or stockings into their ensembles.

    The runners' $25 registration fees went toward post-job bar activities and a donation to the Children's Tumor Foundation.
