Sweating with the sharks.....

This morning on my run, I was wishing I had a squeegee or a shammy to keep the sweat out of my eyes, and off my face. My imagination went crazy and I started to create a cross of both. I started imagining me in front of the "Shark Tank" (Love that show) investors asking for money. My smile went upside down when I pictured the mean guys shooting me down and calling me a crazy runner lady.

This is mile 5 of the 10 miles I ran... alone today. Don't you love the gold glitter Active Band?!?! I sure do. No..... I did not jump into a pool after my LR. This is what happens when you run at 5:30 am and the temps are 76* and 90% humid.
Were you a sweating mess after your run?


Do you ever create a product that you think could help us runners?


Have you ever watched "Shark Tank"?

Same conditions for me today on my long run--except I only made it 9.25 miles of running! I was SOAKED from head to toe, pretty nasty actually. I love Shark Tank, and there is a British version called Dragon's Den (just as awesome, you should look it up online!)

I was a massive sweaty mess and my clothes stunk after my run! Why does it have to be so hot!?

That looked like me today on my 9 miler. Sweat city...I was COMPLETELY soaked! The humidity is out of control...I don't remember it being this humid last year.

I sweat like CRAZY, shorts dripping & shoe's sloshing by the end of most of my runs this time of year. I have to drink ever 20 min. to keep up. But I'm actually loving the summer sweat fest training (I COULD NOT say that just a few years ago)

I watch Shark Tank. Maybe in addition to gadgets you mentioned some really, really absorbent shoes with a drain pipe in the back????? (love my Drymax socks, but they can't keep up with THIS heat)

I survived running in a NY heatwave and could have beat you in a "sweatiest runner contest" I am sure! :) You look awesome though! I will email you about the activebands. Thanks!

I only saw Shark Tank once but it was fun. I can never remember when it is on. :)

Great job not letting the heat stop you!!
