TMI Tuesday

It's time for Tuesdays on the Run.  Today's topic is TMI.  For the record if TMI doesn't mean what it used to, then I'm going to be one embarrassed Ho.


When I run, my nose drips like a faucet once the temperature dips to around 50 degrees.  It's a nice constant flow.  I've made no secret about why I wear knit gloves in cooler weather...for the snotability factor.  {I ain't got time for no tissues!}  Knit gloves are very absorbent and easily washable.  However, if you see me at a race, don't reach out for a fist bump or slap me with a high five. I'm just warning you for your own good.


My favorite pair.  They need a GOOD washing.



I can burp like a sailorWell, if I so choose.  I am a lady, relatively speaking. It's unfortunate that I can't burp and run at the same time!  If the urge hits, it develops into this horrible shoulder pain -- like air is trapped under my collar bone.  I would sailor-burp in a heartbeat during a race to relieve that pain, if I only could.  But afterwards you'd better stand clear.  {Think disgusting lip-flapping Barney from the Simpsons.}


Here's one that is just TMI for me.  If you are wearing one of those Gotta Go running skirts and decide to just -- you know -- GO, please don't tell me.  It's OK if you need to take care of some business.  {Perhaps I'm a wee bit jealous that you can do this in your clothing.}  But, I'd just rather be blissfully ignorant of it.  However it begs the question, how does that even work?  Is it like a diaper?  Curious minds...


Tell me something you consider to be TMI!

  1. I always wear gloves even when I don't need them to use as a tissue I buy the $1 ones. TMI - I don't wash them as often as I should.

    1. I like to find the cheap multi-pack of gloves. I sort of hate when it gets too warm to get away with them. What am I going to wipe my nose on?

  2. haha... I get a little freaked out about others gloves because I know how much I wipe my nose on my gloves too :)

    1. We need to come up with some awkward elbow bump or something...

  3. I was running behind a woman at race once and she shouted out "look out" as she proceeded to pee while she ran. I'm sorry, but I was disgusted. I just can't do that. And hey, it's not like she was going to win the thing!

    1. That's just not right! I've heard about elites letting the diarrhea fly too. I get it. You are trying to win. But, ewww.....

  4. Over the summer, I was lamenting to my running buddies that the one thing I missed about winter running was having my gloves to wipe my runny nose - too funny! I suspect that all of us glove-wearing runners use them for exactly that...and you make a good point about not high-fiving other glove wearers!

    1. I miss them in the summer. But thankfully, it isn't as bad that time of year. I was telling Rebecca (above) we need to come up with some awkward elbow bumping thing.

  5. HAAAAA about the gloves. SO much yes there. I'm the same when it gets cold and am SO happy that cheap gloves exist and are washable. Or dumpable if I just don't want to mess with the mess ($1 Target specials, right?)

    1. I've been known to throw them away when a long race gets too hot or if they aggravate me in any way. So, the cheaper the better.

  6. I got some Etsy hand-covers that are not gloves or mittens (all fingers are exposed) but have a special "snot wipe" area. For when you're running but don't need full gloves! Esp if it's not cold enough for long sleeves!

    I had only recently heard about this Gotta Go skirt. I looked it up after reading your post... I can't believe that this is being made! Not sure if I'd use this, I think so much would depend on how comfy this ends up being for running!

    1. I have a runninggluv and a handanna for wiping "sweat" (etc.) but find they aren't as effective and the cheap-o gloves. When I first got the email about the Gotta Go Skirt, I thought it was a prank!

      Delete
  7. Wait. There's a gotta go skirt? What rock have I been under? And how does it work?? I do burp like a sailor when running. So much so that a guy in front of me running the Chi Marathon turned back and asked if I was ok.

    1. Yes, there is! I thought it was a prank at first. If ONLY I could burp when I run, I'd be so happy! What problems it would solve. Ahh...

  8. My nose also runs a lot, especially in the winter. I've been tempted by those gloves with the special wipe area!

    1. I've got a couple of versions of those. The Handana actually has a little attached towel!. But, I think I prefer my cheap-o gloves.

      Delete
  9. I totally do the same thing with cotton gloves in the winter, I mean really who carries a tissue when they run?? For that reason because I know what I do with them, I would never wear someone else gloves, or shake anyones gloved hand LOL LOL
    Ummm I have never heard of the gotta go skirt, oh my gosh I am not sure if that is hilarious, weird or kinda a good idea??? I am not sure I would wear one, I mean just kinda weird and gross... But maybe for some ladies who get up in age and can't control a little leakeage they are probably a lifesaver for them so they can still stay active??

    1. You know I guess if you have leakage problems, the Gotta Go is the perfect solution. Surely it is not meant for just relieving yourself? Or is it? I would have a hard time purposefully making wee wee all over myself...while moving.

  10. My nose runs like a faucet too! So much so that the space under my nose gets chafed! It's awful. And a little painful after a while! Can't say I burp too much but I do need to run behind everyone every now and then (I wouldn't want them behind me, if you know what I mean)!

    1. I either let mine drip into my mouth (salty--ewwww) or try to soak it up with gloves. I know exactly what you mean!

  11. Hey Holly! I hear you on the gloves as tissues thing. My cycling gloves are all in need of a good washing. There's a reason why the food stops at century rides are usually designated as "glove free" zones!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. All food stops should be glove free, Kelli! That is a wonderful idea and good to know they have that in place. Wow...a century ride. I wonder if I could handle 100 miles?

  12. My bike gloves have a soft patch for wiping ... sweat, right? ;-)

  13. Hahahaha! Good laugh! Thank you!!

  14. How enlightening! I had no idea such a skirt existed. Probably not something I'd want for myself but intriguing.

    1. I'm not sure I could make myself go in the skirt!

  15. You crack me up! I'm the same way about a dripping nose. I do the non-eco thing and use tissues, It really irritates my husband because I am always pulling unused tissues out of my pockets and leaving them places or, worse, forgetting to take them out and putting clothes in the wash so that there are little tissue pieces everywhere. I'm not sure knit gloves would work for me because it's not just a drip...I have to blow a lot too! OK, my TMI is that when I pass cigarette or cigar smokers as I run, I try to fart so that they have to smell my noxious fumes since I'm smelling theirs. So far I've been unsuccessful, but I do try!

    1. There are tissues stuffed into all my pockets and in my purse! I wash them constantly. I LOVE your TMI. Hee hee. I'm definitely going to keep that one in mind.

  16. My gloves are the same way on winter runs :)

    1. I'm very thankful they are washable!

  17. LOL, no high fives.
    I have to wash my gloves after every single run lol my hands sweat!
    I like that my morning runs are dark, when nature calls it is very easy to pop a squat. Not nearly as easy in daylight lol

    1. I've never popped a squat on a run. Seriously! I've never stopped at a porta-a-potty in a race either! Hard to believe.

  18. I have a special pair of running gloves just for the sole purpose of wiping my nose!

    1. All of mine quality for this special purpose. LOL.

  19. OMG I should have read this post while on one of the buses to Disney for a laugh! Ha, I'm with you on using your gloves to wipe away the drips. I will not be purchasing any bottoms you pee through. That is just gross. When I read about them a few months ago I was totally shocked. I had always heard in New Orleans people would just pee on the streets in their run, I thankfully have never seen this. I have seen people come out from behind buildings, I try not to look too hard ya know!

    1. I can't intentionally pee in my clothes. I thought the marketing was meant as a joke at first. It is a great idea if you have a leaky bladder, though. I'm not peeing in any street, anywhere.
