Are you one of those runners who carefully plans out their routes based on where the bathrooms are located? If so, you're not alone.
About 65 percent of runners suffer from mid-run stomach problems at some point during their running careers. Not only are runner's trots and other gastrointestinal (GI) issues embarrassing and bothersome, but they can hinder race performance and lead to dehydration. Severe runner's diarrhea can even cause weight loss and vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
We have two special guests for our 50th podcast episode.
Bob and Trish Evans are a husband and wife creative duo. They are experienced jugglers who hold world records for joggling (juggling while running) in the 5K (Trish) and the 10K (Bob).
They also competed in a sprint triathlon, juggling the entire time. They swuggled (swimming while juggling), unijuggled (rode a unicycle while juggling), and joggled (juggled while running). They use their talent and the attention they get to help charities in need. For their triathlon, they raised over $1,000 for the Special Olympics.
Bob and Trish also enjoy sharing about juggling in school assemblies to teach children that fitness can be fun.
Rob Verhelst, or "Fireman Rob" is a twelve year Madison, Wisconsin Firefighter. Just over 11 years ago, Rob found himself working for eight days as part of the search and rescue team in New York City following the horrific attacks of September 11.
Then on the ten year anniversary of the attacks, Rob found himself competing in the Wisconsin Ironman competition. During the competition's 26.2 mile run portion, in memory of his fallen comrades, Rob wore his firefighters coat, pants, helmet, and air pack as a way of paying respect and homage to the sacrifices made on 9/11 but also as a way to raise awareness for the Code 3 for a Cure Foundation.
