As most of you know, I'm training for the 2014 Yuengling Shamrock Marathon (and hoping that someone else brings beer to the after-party), which goes off two weeks from today. Among other things, this means I've been logging serious miles in generally polar temperatures. I don't think I've run in less than three layers during the entire 10-week training program.
And as all of you know, at least the menfolk, cold weather has deleterious effects on one's member. As the body seeks to conserve heat in the core, bloodflow to extremities is restricted. I wear gloves to protect my fragile, circulatorily-compromised fingers. But I was unaware of a similar remedy for my man region.
Until now, that is.
Gentlemen, and the ladies that love us, I give you the ThermaJock. I'll allow the good people from the company to describe it: "Our technologically advanced Polartec® Thermal Pro material helps to
prevent pain and frostbite while providing comfort and warmth to every
man's most sensitive area."
Comfort and warmth are good. Pain and frostbite, bad. God bless you, ThermaJock.
I've ordered one for each of you. Wear them with honor.
