No more stinky wet shoes!

Well, it happened again!  At the Wake Forest Area Runners club run last night, even though there was 0% chance of rain....I think you can see where I'm going with this!

Sprinkling when we started,  about 1/4 mile in, the clouds decided to pour everything they had on us!  So we all were soaked from head to toe, not just from the rain itself, but the puddles that we just couldn't avoid.

But Tim was given a great tip last month on how to avoid your shoes getting that sour smell if you just leave them alone to dry.  Get newspaper sheets and crumple them up and put them in each shoe.  Make sure you widen your laces so you can insert plenty of paper!  Then just let it sit for a day or two, and you have dry shoes with no odor!  We tried it last month when we got drenched on the Neuse River Greenway, and the pic above is from last night.

Have any other great tips?  Comment here, or let us know on Facebook or Twitter!
