20 Miler

I did a 20 mile run yesterday. I tried this new "Hot Shot" product which is supposed to fight cramping in runners.

It's supposed to be a scientific version of pickle juice, a longstanding folk remedy for runners' cramps.

The theory is that the cramps are a neurological problem, caused by muscle neurons over firing. And the pickle juice - coating the mucosal membranes in your mouth as much as your stomach - supposedly disrupts that.

Anyway, I didn't get a full on case of cramps and had a pretty good finish time - for me.

Did it really work?
I don't really know.
But since it didn't hurt,
I'll give it another go.

Repeating it is necessary for the experiment.
