It's snot time for that already, is it?
There are so many things that are beautiful, and I mean so perfectly beautiful about running. It's simplicity, the human body in motion (ok, except for my form), the glorious results. It is a fabulous activity.
But as runners, we also know the sport has a few not so glamorous details that we just don't talk about as much. You know, it's things like the really delicate parts of our bodies that chafe, rub, and bleed, ugly feet, toes and toenails, and at this time of the year - snot.
This cold weather brings out the worst of my nose during the runs. There is not enough pocket space in my wonderful blue running jacket to hold the volume of tissues that I need. So I am in constant conversation with myself on the run of the "right" thing to do. I spend the rest of my waking non-running hours talking to my kids about how wrong it is to wipe their nose on anything on a tissue - so it bugs me to no end when I run out of "right" options for taking care of snot business.
So I am curious - what do you do? Vote today - show me the way. Being submersed in Iowa Caucus activity - I guess I am just getting that polling fever. Everyone's voice makes a difference, take time to vote today.
