""...the truth that someday, you will go for your last run. But not today—today you got to run." - Matt Crownover (after Western States)
The next morning at the awards ceremony, this brave young man was disqualified for receiving assistance from his crew (tragic, but it was the right call).
(ever had a salty film on your body after a long run?).
What *exactly* does that "salty film" mean? I pretty much always get that pretty severely on any run over 17-18 miles or so. Is it inevitable? Does it mean I'm doing something wrong? If so - which way do I go to fix it (more H20? More sodium?)?
Roads were made for journeys...
"Salty film" is just your sweat, dried. It's nothing bad. It's just that sweat's not pure water. It has a lot of other stuff ... like salt ... in it, which stays behind as the water evaporates.
Yes, I know how evaporation works. I didn't get a D+ in high school chemistry for nothing.
