you should wear spandex because its like swimming, the more you have on you, the slower you move. Spandexs are pretty tight and they stick to you when your running, so you can run faster.

No you don't have to wear spandex if you really don't want to.

I prefer them to any shorts and wear them a lot under dresses and skirts. But do whatever you feel comfortable in.
