Forums: Connect with Another Mother Runner

A huge, sweaty welcome to the another mother runner forums, an exclusive but inclusive—that makes sense, right?—place to connect, chat, ask, analyze, and dream big with other runners. The beauty of this running forum is that, unlike our Facebook page, the status updates don’t float by in less than a day. Here they are, accessible whenever you need the 411.

Anything is game here: questions about training, nutrition, sports bras, leaking on the run, whatever. Two categories we think are pretty cool: a match.com for mother runners, where you can find a BRF (best running friend) and free gear swap, a place to find a home for your newish gear you never use. (The recipient pays only for shipping; thank you in advance for respecting this rule.)

So whatever you've got—IT band problems; stroller questions; a picture-perfect race; shoe issues—lay it on the collective us. If you'd like to nominate a category we forgot, email us at runmother [at] gmail [dot] com. We're all here to push each other across the finish line again and again.

I deal with the same thing. I have found that eating and drinking during running helps. I have some chocolate milk/skim milk mixture when I get home but any thing else leads to runners trots. I try to remember to dose with imodium before a long run and have also found that pepto helps my stomach. But, I eat as little as possible for as long as possible.

I've run into a few GI issues in the last year. I find that eating and drinking on the run helps a LOT. I eat a lot on long runs....every 3-4 miles, typically. (Usually 4 mi, but if my stomach feels funny or I think I'm hungry, I'll eat before I hit another 4 mi!) I know it seems odd to eat when my stomach feels off, but it really helps me. There have been times when I think "oh no, I hope I can make to X where there's a bathroom", but I have a GU and some Nuun, and don't have to stop for the bathroom after all.

I also think that Nuun helps a lot. I drink Nuun exclusively on my long runs, and I found that the 1 time when I ran out and had to do water, I had horrible stomach pain for 2 days. For others, it may be the opposite. Bottom line, if something works, don't change it!

I have been having the same issues for the last few years. Am thinking I will have to try to much during my runs. Thanks for the tips. 🙂
