        Sloooow.

          That cracked me up, thanks for sharing!

            Wow, that's a little over the top but funny.  I never had to deal with "trots".  I guess I'm lucky.  Sometimes I pee, then go running and halfway thru the run feel like I've got to pee again but it usually goes away.  I drink all day so there's almost never a time I have an empty bladder.  But trots......thank God, not a problem for me.

             

            i think marathoners have it worse being on the road for multiple hours in a row but even then I think it's rarer than most think.  It just gets the height of attention once it IS someone's problem.

             

            I can honestly say I don't think I'd heard gingerbread man before but I'd call it a good description from the infamous pics posted of the soiled legged runners we've seen in the past here and the BF.

                The picture at the top is my jogging path I run on, and this woman lives in my neighborhood. I will keep an eye out for the woman in the tracksuit looking like she needs to poop, lol. Wondering if she goes to my gym.

                    Dunno if it is real, but it's a very entertaining article.

                    It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                        Well if you are talking about the trots, and have to ask if it's a real thing, I guess you are lucky. I think maybe one of the great unspoken running issues (although spoken about plenty of times on these forums). No idea how prevalent it is but seems not too unsual based on various threads I have seen in the past. Redrum: I don't think it has anything to do with marathoning. For me, if it is going to hit me, it is in the first 1-2 miles. Once I have passed 3 or so, the urge has either been relieved or it goes away. I generally try to go before I go out, which usually works out OK. But for morning runs when I go out first thing (which often works the best for me schedule-wise), it doesn't seem to matter. I have a love/hate relationship with early morning runs.

                            I always have coffee and a poo before I run. I guess that's what's kept this a secret from me.

                              Peeing is my bigger issue. I have the world's smallest, most active bladder and for some reason running always makes me feel like I have to pee, no matter how many times I go first. I've felt my tummy rumble while running and feared the poo monster, but luckily the feeling has passed quickly. Knock wood....lol

                                I wouldn't have guessed that this is a secret. This is probably the most common question I get asked about from non-runners (friends not coworkers). People don't care about what happens for most races, but if someone shits themselves all of the sudden people are paying attention. (people I know anyways)
