Needs more cowbell!
My worst running moment ever: Running in the early a.m. on a long straight highway, I was passed by a man driving one of those huge RV-camper things. When he got about a half mile in front of me, I saw his breaklights go on as he pulled over, then pulled away again. When I reached that spot, I realized he had dumped the entire contents of his septic tank there on the side of the road... AWFUL!
And I had to run back past it again on my way back! I'll never forgive that man... compared to that, cow manure smells like petunias.

I haven't done the research on that (yet). I have a question regarding leather chaps... don't they get awful hot on the long rides (on a horse.. keep it clean)? I would think a long, sweaty ride in the sun would lead to as much chafing as any 20-mile run... perhaps we should start marketing the Body Glide to the country-folks.
Roads were made for journeys...
I can't speak for everyone, but yes, I found them to be hot... but well worth it. The inside seams (?inseams?) on my jeans wouldn't rub as bad, the SADDLE woudn't rub as bad, the brush wouldn't hurt or scratch as much, and I thought I looked really "cool."
Keeping it clean...
