I bring a cotton hanky with me that I use to deal with the runny nose and sweat. I run with a cotton hanky year-round, as during the warmer months it's the best thing for wiping my sweaty face, arms, neck, etc. Then it gets laundered with the rest of my running stuff.
Now that was a bath...
Maybe it's more of a winter problem?
I never had a problem until a very cold day during a trail race. I finally let the snot rockets fly. It's not the most ladylike thing in the world, but very effective. I'm not sure how to prevent the runny nose, but that's how I deal with it!
Silly technical question here - I've read stories about snot shots, but what is the technique exactly? Sounds awful!
