Did anyone spot the quick pit-stop Paula made to relieve herself whilst running the London Marathon today? I couldnt believe it when my wife said she stopped to urinate, and then the BBC replayed it again & again just to show the nation that, Yes she stopped to take a piss in the street. I guess when you have to go, you just have to go.

I have to say I've heard loads of stories about long distance runners either pissing or shitting themselves during or directly after finishing a race but I never thought I'd see it done so seemlessly!  Smile

Congratulations to Paula anyway - she really is a true champ!

Yeah long distance runners somtimes relieve themselves while running, however most don't actually stop, they just keep running while they urinate etc.

And she still came in five minutes ahead of the second-place runner. I guess if you're that far ahead, you can take liberties. Big grin

I ran the marathon today and I'm absolutely knackered. I was able to finish it in 3hrs 2mins and 1 sec (40mins off last year's time). I made a post about this last year but got flamed from some members so I decided to keep it 'quiet' this year ( http://www.airliners.net/discussions/non_aviation/read.main/540910 )

Well done to Paula, I met her before the run and she's a great gal.

Well done Horus! 'Tis a shame about what happened last year when you mentioned it! Shaving 40 minutes off of last year's time must have been a real achievement!

Yeah nice 1! Do you think Paula's piss stunt could have been publicity based?

She says it wasn't a whiz but was actually stomach cramps.

Surely not even a legendary athlete totally focussed on her performance would get her clam out in publc.

Sorry to be so indelicate, but she actually took a dump. I read an interview with her in the Times yesterday in which she acknowledged that she has a medical problem that means she can't always digest food properly. This results in her having to 'produce' her breakfast during the race, often totally undigested.

It happened to her in Athens as well. If you watched carefully today you could see her ask an official at the finish if her rear area was presentable!

Who cares?

I believe so! From the BBC's website -

Quote:
The only moment of drama for the Briton came late on when she stopped by the road-side and squatted down for about 10 seconds before resuming the race.
"I think I need to apologise to the nation for having to stop like that but I was losing 10 seconds every time my stomach cramped up," she said.
"I must have eaten a bit too much, I waited a bit too long. I didn't really want to have to resort to that in front of hundreds of thousands of people.

If you've eaten too much and have stomach cramps, you don't normally have a piss!

I predict this event will now enter the language in two ways -
I'm going for a quick Paula - to take an al-fresco dump, and along the lines of "Is the Pope a Catholic?" - Does Paula dump in the gutter?

Congrats to the lass, takes balls to do that. Well, you know what I mean!

And Dumpgate continues...

Was it a number two then? Seems like she is admitting to a quick blast out of the tradesman's entrance after a bad reaction to a meal. Food doesn't make you pee after all!

Congrats Horus, thats quite an achievement! We had 2 teachers from our school fly over to England two years back to participate in the marathon, they also raised quite a bit of money.

Did you raise money for the same charity again this year?

It makes me proud to be descendant of you fine people....
It is very hard to take a piss or a dump while running...it tends to smear down the legs on the way down. She was being practical.
I wonder if one of those sicko paparazzi will make a scoop (literally) and sell the business on Ebay??
