You know, that moment when you…

Are in a time crunch and have to hurry to get a shower in, changed and off to catch a flight?  I was in the situation this weekend.  Saturday, I ran the Ben Moore Memorial 1/2 Marathon in Annapolis and I had a early afternoon flight off to Kansas City.  My hotel was (luckily) around the corner, so I could get in a quick shower and save the people on my 2 flights from BWI. I was pretty much packed, but threw my dirty (sweaty) clothes in a laundry bag and my sweaty (wet) shoes in a different plastic bag and left for the airport.  I got into KC and to my hotel to get ready to work with some med students.  When I took my shoes out the next day to go for a run, you guessed it, they were still a wet hot mess.  Lesson learned?  I think so.  The solution I didn’t think of?  Crumple up newspapers and shove them in your shoes when they’re soaking wet.  They get all the sweat/ water wetness out and you’re not in a situation where you’re running in wet shoes the next day.  Hopefully, my stupidity will save someone!!!
