Pig Sweat

Or is it "Sweat like a Pig?" Yeah, it's sweat like a pig, well I sweat like a pig tonight; which is good pig sweat will protect you from Islamic Jihadists just like garlic repels a vampire. I Also tested out some new sleeves for my Shure SE Model headphones.

I used to use the triple flange sleeves which I thought were the best, but they fell out often when I would get drenched in sweat. The new Tapered black foam sleeves stayed put for the whole run. If you run with headphones this may be real good info for you?

I've never been happier...accept for the pain in my right schin area rrr it hurt! About four years ago when I started running I got shin splints pretty bad; however, I toughed it out and ran through the month of pain. Tonight I wanted to run a lot further, but my darn leg hurt, maybe worse than shin splints? The last few miles it started to feel better and I felt great; strong, like a truck pulling an empty trailer.

Still, I felt like I should take it easy and head home to watch Hannity's America. Oh, I stopped and chatted with my cousin Leigh for about 2 minutes and 43 seconds so I actually ran a 8:32mm on a bum leg. Also forgot to start GPS for about 2 blocks.

Pigs don’t actually sweat! Nope, unlike people, pigs lack eccrine (“EK-rin”) sweat glands in their skin. (You, you have millions!) Eccrine sweat glands pump out sweat to keep your body temperature steady. Sweating cools you off when you need it. Pigs, instead, cool off by lying in cool, cool water or mud. Or by living in not-hot, just-right barns.
