Video — Season 2 – Episode 12 – The Vomit Episode

running-advice-bugWe may have to apologize in advance to our viewers for this episode — actually this and the next episode coming next week on a related topic. Hey, if you’ve been watching, you know that Coaches Joe and Dean are like a couple of kids when it comes to their sense of humor. Well, this weekend we tackle a real topic for runners, albeit one that happens to lend itself to a lot of crude jokes.

The topic this week: vomit, puke, throw-up, barf. This is the Vomit Episode and it is dedicate to all of the runners out there that suffer from throwing-up, puking, or heaving when they are running.

On this week’s episode:
— Why do runners throw-up, puke, vomit, or barf?
— What types of runners are more prone to throwing up?
— What can runners do to avoid throwing-up?
— What are Coaches Dean and Joe’s favorite ways to refer to throwing-up, puking or vomiting?

Next week, we take a trip south of the border to talk about what’s coming out the other end.

Running Advice and News



  1. Coach Joe, your experience getting food for the runner in the NYC marathon makes perfect sense. Nausea and vomiting is a symptom of Hyponatremia. So when it occurs in the later stages of a marathon, ultra-marathon, or triathlon, that should be considered. Eating salty food like chips, salted nuts, or pretzels, is a good choice. The runner may not only tolerate, but actually crave such foods, which is probably the body’s way of trying to correct the electrolyte imbalance.
