Whatever happened to the good old days of horses sweat, men perspire, and women glow?

I never did understand that glow thing.

I glow like a horse.

I was really glad to read this as I had noticed that when I run on the treadmill and see other women on treadmills around me, I sweat WAY more than they do. I drip, my hair gets soaked in back. Same when I do my weekly MTB ride with a work friend. She glows, I SWEAT.

Now I know it's just because I'm fit.

It's shocking how soaked I get. When I run on a TM the sweat just flies in all directions. I definitely out-sweat my hubby.

Ah-HAH! I'm not a sweaty beast, I'm just more efficient at regulating my core temperature!
