Dutchie I go running in the early morning, before my brain figures out what I'm up to.

Dutchie - you ran a great race.
Jeff - it finally happened to me on Sunday. 7 miles into a run, and unfortunately too far from home, my bowels fired a "warning shot" in mid stride. Luckily, I recalled the very useful info from you on OBMPP. What I wasn't prepared for was the acceleration from even a very slow jog. I suspect that OBMPP is most effective when you heed the early warnings - I admit to ignoring some signals. Okay, it was an SOS but still, within 0.2 miles, the red siren went off. I was able to make it to an inconspicuos area (off a main 4 lane road). To prevent the incident from going supernova, I was reduced to walking for fear that the main valve would be breached. Thankfully, a Masonic Lodge had let their landscaping grow out of control a little such that cover and concealment of shrubs and small trees provided for an adequate curtain.
Regretably, I lost a great running shirt yesterday. RIP (rest in pooh) faithful garmet.
