I doubt anyone will care. I see people here jog all the time and some go without their shirts on, lol. I would say wearing shorts or some adidas pants would be fine.

If you have some sort of athletic-looking shorts or pants, that would work. Just don't wear jeans or something too heavy. People always look sort of grungy when they're running... as long as you're comfortable, that's what matters :)

Running? Brilliant!

Glad to hear that you will soon join the running fold. It's a cool place to be. Like Shyvr said, wear whatevs comfortable. I have a personal moratorium against wearing shorts, but that's just me all hatin' on bare legs in shorts (strangely I'm totally okay with wearing mini skirts?) Anyway! Have fun! Start small and keep going! If you want to PM me I can recommend songs to run to if you have an mp3 player.

Put one leg in front of the other very fast. Off you go...

But seriously, you should jog around at midday when everyone else is at work to work on your 'form' if you feel that you're going to look funny. I haven't encountered a single person who actually ran funny. Humans pretty much run all the same.
