Snot Rockets

I have never been able to (or really ever wanted to) blow a snot rocket. Maybe I am a lady, maybe I don’t possess the snot rocket gene, but I can’t bring myself to do it. But, when I run – so does my nose. My answer to this is a folded up paper towel* tucked in my shorts or sports bra. I just blow my nose mid-stride and keep going. *You must use a paper towel NOT a napkin or tissue paper for this – anything else falls apart. Sure, it gets super gross by the end of a run, but I don’t want to be running around shooting crap out of my nose. Snot rockets are not for me.DSCN1294DSCN1292

My paper towel and I did 6 miles this morning :)

It was cold this morning, but my bananas are not ripe enough for oatmeal. I decided on a Green MonsterĀ  and a waffle with PB&J. DSCN1300

Someone asked about my trail mix…I always mix it up depending on my mood! This time I used Cheerios, Almonds, Cashews, Graham cereal, Chocolate Chips, and Raisins.DSCN1295

I mix it up in a big ziploc bag or tupperware container, toss around and enjoy!DSCN1288

I love getting a handful of everything :)DSCN1287

Happy Monday! I am leaving for Belize on Saturday morning – let’s hope this week goes by fast!

    Haha, I can’t do one either, and it doesn’t bother me in the least. My old frisbee coach did them all the time and I just didn’t feel like running too close behind him after that

    I’m disgusted by snot rockets ever since Real World and Puck….ewww!

    I usually end up using a wrist band or my sleeve. But I think I’ll be trying your papertowel trick next outdoor run.

    Thanks for the trail mix “recipe!” This post is hilarious.. the boyfriend and I always have the snot rocket convo. I think that it’s a male thing.

    Haha, this post made me laugh. When I started cycling, my boyfriend told me I’d have to learn to snot rocket. But I can’t do it! I just don’t have the power behind it šŸ˜› I usually stuff TP in my sports bra and it gets soaked, I’ll have to try the paper towel :)
