|Getting ready for a run in the cold!|
I really do believe in an “off season” for runners.
|Pacer wanted to be a show-off...she runs bare-pawed!|
-They put jelly (Vaseline) on their toes!*** (please read the note at the bottom)
Now, before every cold, snowy run, I put gobs of this stuff on my toes before slipping on my Dry Max socks.
***Vaseline is NOT an animal-friendly product. Yes, I was using it in the picture as I bought my jar a few years ago (originally for chapped lips), but after writing this I felt guilty and found a animal friendly substitute in the BABY section of a store.
Beforehand, I did do a Google search which was unproductive (there were many natural products, but they included beeswax, which is not vegan...Yes, I'm picky!), but PETA has a long list of products (http://features.peta.org/cruelty-free-company-search/cruelty_free_companies_search.aspx?Donottest=-1&Product=Sub_15&Dotest=-1&Regchange=-1&Country=-1&Keyword ) and there has to be another alternative there. However, if you have any products you like, please leave a comment and let me know!
