1. Snot Rockets Are Totally Acceptable
“Training for a long time with an all-male group, I picked up some of their behaviour. Like, if I feel stuffy, I just blow out a snot rocket.

You just close one nostril, assess where the wind is blowing and force a strong blow in that direction.”
[Exercise acts on the nose like an irritant, similar to perfume or smoke, causing excessive mucus production in the lining of the nose, according to experts.] “It’s not something I take pride in, but when you’re running, especially at altitude, you need all the oxygen you can get and it’s a distraction no one wants. Wearing long sleeves and gloves to wipe your drippy nose also works.” – marathoner and Olympic medallist Deena Kastor
