One of the most popular posts ever to grace the front page of our site is What to Do When You Have to Poop or Pee but There’s Nowhere to Go. That makes us wonder if there’s a runner out there who dares run a route with no bathroom options at all. I don’t think I know a single runner who hasn’t experienced gastro-intestinal distress at least to some degree while running. And yet it seems like no one has an answer for how to get the ol’ digestive track to cooperate. Let’s get to the bottom of this problem once and for all!
So, today we want you to share your trots tales, your poop scoop, your stool stories (sorry!) Have you experienced inconvenient, uncomfortable or potentially scary poop issues on the run? Do you do anything special to prevent having to poop on the run? If you’ve overcome GI issues, how did you figure out what was causing it and how did you fix it?
