Am I the only one who has unexpected issues while running? Do you know what I'm referring to? Not to be graphic, but my G.I. tract sometimes goes ape shit when I run. Well, not like I'm shitting like an ape, but you know what I mean. I can be perfectly fine, head out for a run and start having issues.
Take today for example. It's 65 degrees in Longmont, so I headed to Boulder to do the Eagle Loop. Half way into my second loop and miles from the car, I start having issues. I don't know how much detail you want, but suffice it to say that an unexpected start to something womanly plus an episode of something made funny in the movie "Along Came Polly" hit all at once. (Okay, if you haven't seen the movie, you still must know what a shart is, if you don't, look it up).
I am sure this can't be just happening to me.
It's so random, too. I ran an entire marathon without so much as a fart and then I go on this benign seven miler today and I'm a mess.
Don't get me wrong - it was still a great run. How could it be bad being in the bright sunlight, looking at the Rockies and running amongst the cows and horses?
Like I've said in a previous post: I'm always glad I did the run when it's over. Even if I needed to be hosed off.
If you're comfortable, share with me if this happens to you, what you do about it, how you prevent it.
