This sounds really random, but does EVERYONE suffer a runny nose when theyre running? I always have and its really irritating and I feel a little embarrased about it! Its not as tho I carry a packet of kleenex while im out! lol!!

I always run with a hanky hanging out my running tights

don't be embarrased, it just a runny nose, I always get it and know loads of runners who do, i always have a tissue tucked in my shorts

Me too, it's nothing to be embarrased about and i take tissues out with me for it.

It is however really annoying

I always carry a pocket pack of tissues and usually go through one every couple of miles.  If its not hayfever in the summer, its winter snot.  Its bally annoying any time of year.

 I've read that those snoring strips can help but haven't got around to trying them yet.

I've mastered the art of snot rockets, but I do run alone...

ooooh i didn't want to mention it siance but me too! its a lot easier - only do it if i'm in the country and when no ones around though!!

Yep me too (runny nose not snot rocket lol) ....... so glad to see i'm not on my own.

Thanks for all the replies. Ive not seen any runners near me with tissues on them but im definately going to start taking them with me x

I'm also a master of the snot-rocket, and pretty good at snorting them out when no one else is around.  I get so hideously caked in my own sweat, I couldn't really see me carrying tissues.

Anyone fancy going for a run?

Yup ... my nose runs faster than I do ... snot rockets (aka the tramp's hanky) are the way to go

I have a small buff that I put around my wrist and have a quick wipe as I go round. Then it just goes straight in the washing machine ready for the next time.

It's called exercise-induced rhinitis - in other words, running makes your nose run!  Very common, and a good reason for wearing gloves in winter.

what to wipe your nose? are you being serious?x

I ALWAYS carry tissues but when it's extremely runny I'll just do snot rocketing too and wipe the rest in my t-shirt. Lovely and feminine

why snot use your gloves - it's only your own mucous! Bung em in the wash with your kit after. Simples
08/08/2009 at 12:41
simples! lol! Urgh tho! Theres absolutely nothing attractive about running at all is there! LOL!x

there's plenty thats atractive about running,for instance the grace with wich you can snot rocket with a little practice

Until now I've never seen a woman spit but now I'm learning that you can actually snot rocket - I'm obviously running in the wrong circles LOL (not literally circles you understand - ah what the heck)
08/08/2009 at 13:09

Yep - tissues stuffed down leggings and when they've gone t-shirt.   I've tried to snot rocket but it goes all over my hand which i end up wiping on my t-shirt anyway.

 I figured i lost all my dignity the day i started peeing in bushes.
