My first snot rocket

I feel like it was almost a right of passage.

Today, I blew my first snot rocket. I’ve been running for 5 or 6 years and it took until now, which is kind of crazy. I had a bug fly up my nose, so, it was necessary.. and it a way it was kind of liberating. I was in the woods at the time, so it seemed only natural.

Today’s Run:
Distance: 20 km
Weather: 15 C, sunny, wind 24 km/h


  1. I'm not sure if I deserve any sort of congratulations... but thanks :)
    I don't plan on making the rockets a regular thing.

  2. i did my first snot rocket at the trail race on saturday. my nose was stuffy and i knew i couldn't go that long without doing something. there was no one around me so i tried, and it worked! i kept on doing it throughout the race because my nose kept on getting stuffy. it landed on my shoe once but it didn't matter because they were muddy anyway...yay for snot rockets! i don't think i'd do it on a regular basis either, but it just seemed fitting on the trail...
