"Monogamy is fabulous. It gives you a deep and profound connection to another human being...... And you don't have to shave as much!"
woman sunbathing in back yard - Sex and The City
As I was doing ab work this afternoon, while watching reruns of Sex and The City, I heard the statement quoted above. It made me giggle because that is just like me. For what ever reason.... errr... laziness.... I have never been one of those women who shave their legs every day.
Which brings me to this post:
I have a ritual before my races. I buy all new Nair products ( waxes, depilatory cream...) and set a couple hours aside to put them to good use! The smooth feeling of clean, hair free skin, makes me feel like a brand new person. It gives me extra confidence at the beginning of a race (nearing the end, I couldn't really give a crap!). Normally, I have a glass of wine to help ease the pain... before a race I just grin and bear it.
I don't know if any other women out there are lazy shavers? Or if they have any pre-race hair removal rituals? Let me know. Post a comment. What about the men out there? What do you do? Would love to hear about your pre-race grooming rituals.
OK,I shave my legs, I said it! I guess it goes back to my triathlon days of cutting body hair before a big race and it has carried over to running as well. It jsut makes the legs feel better for the post race massage as well.
Thanks for "outing" yourself Derek. :-) Good point about the massage!
mmm..gotta have smooth race legs actually, feel clean....
