    wow, just wow. I think I'd do him the favor of spraying him with a hose as he ran by.

    Always take a pre-race dump.

    I don't think a pre-race dump would have done any good...

    I must admit I'm a quitter.

    Let me tell you the story behind that picture. The guy is from a town about 150 miles north of where I live, and the race (half marathon) was right here in Gothenburg, in the central parts. May 17th. I had planned to be in the race myself, but my heart condition stopped me.

    The guy comes from a family of fairly competitive runners so determination is indeed the correct word. He ran the race in just over 70 minutes last year and wanted to get below 70 minutes this year. When he woke up on race day, his stomach was in a bad state, but that determination kicked in and he decided to run. Not long after taking off, his stomach wanted to turn itself inside out. And he just decided to let it rip. The picture above shows what it looked like about 30-40 minutes later. He finished the race, placing 21st out of 40 000+ runners and clocked in at a respectable 1.09.43 - a hair below the 70 minutes!

    Wow.

    I remember running cross country in high school and seeing some girls just letting go. I always made sure I made a stop at the facility before every one of my races.

    Jeebus, there's always other races and next year...I think it's less determination and more mental illness...

    21st is respectable for that number of runners. However, if your gonna take the kids to the pool in your shorts, you damn well better finish first.

    I think I would rather accept the challenge of running to a place to squat off the route, and then try to make up my time. Running without a good wipe would be determination enough for me, thank you very much!

    Or maybe he violated the golden rule:
    Never Trust a Fart.
    “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

    Uggh... I'd rather just score a DNF than have pics on the internet of me (which will be there forever) showing off the poop chute hangfire.

    Only people who would have respect for that would be the scat fetish crowd... and those are people I don't really hang around with.

    I'd say this is acceptable if:
    1) You are running for a medal in a major race (e.g.- Boston Marathon, Olympics, etc..)
    2) You are running for a spot on your country's Olympic Team

    Other than that... just... damn...

    I have had to do an emergency combat drop in the middle of runs before... rather interesting if you're running in a residential area and you are too far from your house to not "make it".

    If I felt the need, I'm confident I could take a dump in 17 seconds.

    I've peed on my bike while riding in a triathlon. Not that hard. Just stand up and let fly. Your tri shorts are already wet from the swim anyway.

    You know, I've had to go during a run before. I've been miserable, cramping, and feeling like I could just let go at any second. I know how that guy must have felt. You're going for your personal best, to win, to do better than you've ever done before.

    But, you know what? I'm not going to fscking crap myself to do it.

    I've been playing Rugby for about 35 years now. There was a time lasting about 15 years where the question for a game was not if, but when I would throw up. I was a good boy and usually made it to the sidelines first.

    I've played with a temp of over 102. That game I missed about 15 minutes throwing up and trying to get warm. It was in hte middle of a very cold rainstorm and we had no subs.

    But never problems like the ones at the start of this thread.
