What’s the strangest or most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you on a run?
This is a fun one…. I was on a long run on the river trail right off of campus one evening, when my stomach started moving around and grumbling a little bit. I should side note that I am not a farter really. I have never been a gassy person. I can’t burp, I hardly ever fart, but let me tell you what, nothing gets gasses bouncing around and out like a run.
So anywho, there I was, rocking my way down the river trail, head phones in, when suddenly, I am pretty sure I need to fart. I do a quick look around just incase I do in fact let some bodily music slip, to make sure that no one is within ear shot. I had just come around a curve, but I hadn’t seen anyone on the trail in at least a mile…I’m safe.
Sure enough, not 5 steps later, over my head phones, I hear probably the biggest fart my body has ever produced… followed immediately by the Michigan State Men’s Cross Country team flying by me…
“Of course”… I say to myself…”that would happen to me”.
