Best Present Ever
there is a local runner who trains with a group I often run with on their slower days. She always runs in full makeup -- foundation, the works. Pearl earrings. Hair in a nicely swept-up ponytail. And a load of perfume. She's much faster than me, so I'm rarely in her wake for long, but just standing around waiting to start is nauseating.
I find that this issue is more prevalent and less easy to evade at work.
