GI issues while running- more common than you might think!

Did you know an estimated 70% of runners have experienced GI issues or ‘tummy troubles’ while training or competing?

70-f******* percent!

While ‘runner’s diarrhea’ is generally thought to be the “worst” symptom to experience, GI symptoms during exercise can include nausea, vomiting, cramps, bloating, or burping.
