A bit of a rude topic here, but has anyone got caught short? In other words, have they done a run, a half marathon etc, and their bowels / bladder have demanded to be emptied whilst going round?
I say this, since aside from the fear of getting a stich, or not completing the race, i am always afraid of my body taking over with its functions. I have only had it happen to me once, when i was doing a training run, and i had to rush into a Starbucks.
I think i understand why so many people are queing for the toilet before a race, and i always make sure i am completely..well you know...before i go on the starting blocks...
So anyone got any stories? Fool proof methods of beating this? And really, what does one do, when you need to dump, for lack of the better word. Is there any rules with running etiquette?
