"1) On "grease" days, you will get satisfyingly filthy, so use the oldest team kit you own and solid black shorts. On cold wet days, everyone else stays in their car until the last possible moment anyway, so I substitute the grease ritual and the ride to the start line as my warmup.

2) Spread newspaper over your car seats to avoid getting prep and Vaseline everywhere. Some guys use a sheet of clear plastic or an old blanket to protect the upholstery for this.

3) Working as near to "bottomless" as modesty and / or vehicular privacy allows, apply liberal amounts of the muscle prep of your choice, in the "heat" of your choice to all the large muscle surfaces of your legs (yes, including the glutes, but keep well away from your naughty bits with the prep!).

3) Once you've got the prep well rubbed in, you then apply the "insulating layer" on top. This means Vaseline, as thick as you can stand. The goal is a slimy layer sitting on top of the skin to repel water."

I want to be a volunteer for "grease day". Whew! I may need a cold shower now.

Cheers!

to be digging up my old rainy race ritual posts. geezus man, that message has got to be something like four months old.

The saddest part of this is that the grease ritual was taught to me by a fiftysomething Masters racer and no one in the club thought anything of it at the time...

Should I mention at this point that part of the "grease day" ritual that I forgot to mention was a liberal application of Vicks to my chest?

Don't forget a good description of the application of Chamois Butt'r.
