Grandma's wisdom says that you can stick newspaper in your wet shoes to help them dry fast. Who knew? It may also be deduced that paper towels probably work too, if you're not done reading the comics section yet.
This is a tip for those who might run where giant swarms of gnats sometimes loiter by the side of the road. This tip stems from a run on the Mayan Riviera in Mexico, but I've encountered swarms of gnats in Virginia and Kentucky as well. After your run, always stop and look in a mirror before going into public. Otherwise, you might actually complete a transaction at the resort store and greet five people before realizing you have up to 15 gnats stuck to your face and neck.
