One More Thing...

When I got home from running on Saturday Jason informed me that I looked as though I'd just come out of the sea. And, no, those white spots in the photos are not a smudge on the camera.





Apparently I sweat out quite a bit of salt. And when the wind dries it on my skin instead of it just running and dripping I become a human salt lick.

Maybe I should look into salt tabs? Perhaps I could bottle and sell my own?

A coworker gave me some salt stick to try and I picked up some nuun (uh, or whatever it is called) this week to try too :) Hee hee. It's funny that some people are so salty and other aren't!

I look like that very often. I’ve wondered about the quality and purity of that salt…? I take salt tabs on runs of 3 hours and longer during the warm months.

Oh my gosh I don't think I've ever seen that. I would mistake it for drool, that sadly I am more familiar with :)
