>General Running>I've entered Paris 2014... now where do I start!?
p.s. some of the big races in Europe (such as Rotterdam) have pay porta-potties at the race start. Bring half a Euro with you to the start in case you need to use one. I had to piss on the side of a building because I didn't know.
2013 Goal: Survive JFK50
I remember that most public portapotties in France (Water Closets, or WC's) charge money. ---I've heard of many different ways to get taxes and revenue from folks, but when you have to pay to pee?
The Plan (big parts)→ /// Nov 23rd : JFK-50 Miler in MD (survived!) /// Dec 21st: Seashore Nature Trail 50K in VA Beach /// March 2014: Shamrock Marathon /// April 2014: 24 Hour Run for Cancer ∞
Not my usual look
Or some places make you pay for T.P.
Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.
At Machu Picchu you have take your TP from a roll outside the bathroom and bring it in with you. You bet your ass you're being judged by everone else in line for how much TP you think you are going to need.
1. Wonder how many folks planning on doing #2 don't take any TP in... (Well, I remember that being more common in Arabian countries I visited)...
2. What happens to you if you take the whole roll in with ya?
There are plenty of free loos at the start of the Paris Marathon. The queues can be a bit long, but that's hardly unusual for a marathon start.
The start pens do have porta-urinals within, which is actually a good idea and more races should do it.
