File this one under, “stuff I always thought was weird and gross and kind of embarrassing until I found out that everyone I know does it.”
It’s Snot a problem.
It’s Snot unladylike.
It’s Snot something to hide.
It’s just a normal, natural part of running in the winter!
If, like me, you’re an outdoor runner year-round, you know that running in cold weather can present some perplexing new problems, like how to keep your tights from riding down your butt, figuring out where to stash your hat if your head gets too warm, and where to carry tissues.
Worry no more about that last one, though, because I, Cinnamon, present you with a 2 minute video tutorial on how to blow a snot rocket! Don’t worry though, I’ll spare you the juicy stuff; no actual snot was rocketed in the making of this video.
I used to be a tissue-carrier, because I didn’t know that snot rockets existed. I can’t remember when exactly it was, but I definitely remember talking on the phone with my sister (Salty), and laughing when I heard her say the phrase, “Snot Rocket.” I thought it was so disgusting! So crude and ignoble!
But then I tried it. And let me tell ya, girlfriend, my running life changed forever.
Have you ever been afraid to blow a snot rocket? Or on the other side of the coin, are you extraordinarily proficient at rocketing and if so, do you harbor secret pride in this fact?
