Chad won last week’s GIVEAWAY for free entry to our Marathon 101 training class, but he’s not interested in the class because he lives in Boston.
So, we’re offering the spot up to the very first person to comment e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and tell me they want it! (I’ll update this once it’s taken. 1:12 pm, it’s gone!) Read on for a chance to win free entry to our Marathon/Half-Marathon 201 class.
On a recent morning trail run, my running partner announced that she had to go.
Not go home, of course, but go. As in go to the bathroom. Right then, no time to turn back, no time to seek out a public restroom.
As she emerged from the woods a few minutes later she said, “My mother would be appalled”.
“Frankly, anyone who isn’t a runner would probably be appalled,” I said.
Judging from the full page of articles and forum links that popped up when I Googled “running bathroom”, only one of which was unrelated to the need to go while on the run, the topic isn’t a new one. In fact, from the looks of it, lots of runners spend a LOT of time thinking about these things.
So here’s our question: where’s the strangest place you’ve used (or created) toilet facilities on a run? (We’d love to know…even if you don’t want in on the GIVEAWAY below.)
