I used to be a professional. I’d head to work at the tall office building downtown in my suit and pumps, but I didn’t carry a briefcase. Instead, I carried a gym bag full of running clothes, make-up and other sundries I needed to catch some miles during lunchtime and transform from a hot sweaty mess back into my lawyer suit. I didn’t think I was any kind of expert on running in the middle of a workday, but as I’ve talked to other professionals who also run, many of them can’t believe I used to pull that off.
But I get so sweaty!
We don’t have showers!
I don’t have time during the workday!
There are solutions. I know a lot of us are pros at making it look like we showered after a run without ever seeing a drop of water, while others of us know how to get in any number of miles within a hectic work week. Still others are experts at figuring out where to get in our miles from the most running-hostile office parks.
So today we ask all of you run-from-work professionals to share your secrets!
How do you get in your miles from work? When do you go? Do you have access to showers or do you have tricks for faking a post-run shower? Do you have good places to run from work or do you have to improvise? Tell us!
