A Bunch of Wet Blankets, and Runners
May 29, 2011, 11:42 a.m. At the end of the race, the Ottawa Race Weekend runners (21.1 km and 42.2 km) are using their aluminum blankets to good effect. The blankets are keeping off the rain, and also allowing the runners to keep in some heat so as to not get chilled.
What happens to these blankets afterwards? I put mine in my first-aid kits. The blankets fold up nicely.
