Spitting While Running... (Read 200 times)

Barking Mad To Run

    I carry paper towels and use them as necessary. 

     

    Well, luckily, I have pretty hairy forearms, so no problem!  Joking   Wink

      Indeed. I mean, there is decency and common sense when running with others.

      I don't farmer's blow my nose when others are around me(well, except my running buddy....I try and ditch her but she keeps following me...or maybe I am following her...anywho). Actually, I usually wait until I am somewhere isolated and out of sight before I do it. Oddly enough, I never need to spit but my nose in the cool weather, never stops! Once it gets below 30 degrees, it's like instant on. I just sniffle until I can get alone to take care of it.

      I doesn't bother me to see others do it though,well unless it is chewing tabacco spit....that shiz nasty!


      Sloooow.

         

        You don't want to race near me then, lol.  Spitting and snot rockets.

         

        Seems like I should probably not do any races due to the risk, lol. I sneeze approximately 100 times a day, and it seems to be more frequent when I run outside. So my nose runs. I carry a tissue... or my shirt sleeve works... lol.

          I don't often spit, but if the need arises in a race, I'll make sure to aim it well forward and off the running surface.  Snot rockets would have to be discrete and during a longer race... 5K's, I'll just use my shirt.

           

          But yeah, I've been spit on, caught splash damage from puke, gotten stuff poured on me at aid stations.  Not a big deal, we're human.

            Someone spit on the indoor track last night.  Not cool.

              Someones dog had an anal explosion all over the trail the other day.

              It wasn't the kind of thing that could have been cleaned up...

                The other day I'm doing a 10 mile run and yes I'm a lady but ladies have phlegm too right? So I'm hocking up some good ones. There weren't any other runners nearby, didnt spit on anyone, was very careful about that.

                 

                So do you believe the manager of the gym had the nerve to come up to me afterwards and tell me I couldn't use the treadmills anymore? I mean what was his problem anyway? some people...

                  I spit.

                  And I do a very good job of checking my 3, 6 and 9 o'clock to make sure I don't spit on or near someone.

                   

                  Sometimes I blow snot rockets.

                   

                  I pass gas...

                   

                   

                  I have yet to shit myself. So there is that...

                   

                  Me too.

                    Okay, this made me laugh. Smile

                     

                    I don't spit but my nose runs like crazy in the cold. I snot rocket and I don't care. I only do it when I'm alone, but I hate sniffling.

                    You may be right

                      I am a spitter.  Big grin

                        That makes me think of a story a guy told me recently.  In this ultra, a guy ran ahead of the pack close to the beginning of the race.  Once he was comfortably ahead he turns around, drops trou, and starts dookin' right there in the middle of the trail.  That's just messed up man lol.

                          I am a very frequent spitter, I use to drool excessively when I ran but I found out if I spit that I don't drool.  I don't know if its a gland thing or something but I produce a ton and either I have to spit or cross the finish line with drool all the way down my chest. I probably spit ever quarter of a mile.  Now knowing I am spitter I always check my 3 a clock and 6 a clock to make sure I am not spitting on anyone.  Its all I can do, I also have to snot rocket frequently for the same issue (even in the summer when its a 100 degrees its because I produce so much mucus for some reason).  Again I always check my sixes to make sure I am not getting anyone.

                           

                          Maybe the person was like me, for some reason they produce a ton of spit and it was either that or drool.  I do take care to make sure I never spit on anyone even though I have spit on myself many times (mostly on bike rides when you misjudge the spit or snot rocker).

                            I didn't read the entire thread, but if you are like me and have asthma flare ups and allergies during most times of the year, you will have an increase in mucous production when you exercise. Swallowing all that will make you really quite nauseated and so I spit or snot rocket that stuff out. I will wait until I am not around anyone so I don't inadvertently hit someone, and on the bike I will fall back to the back of the paceline if in a group ride (this is routine protocol for cyclists unless you are racing, then its game on).

                              I've talked about this with friends and I think it's funny that I'm so lady like and spit during a run or a race. If you don't like it, that is your problem. It's been caught on video.

                              Running is my mental-Ctrl-Alt-Del.
