Five of the Most Disgusting Marathon Pictures Ever

The Houston Marathon is on Sunday, with thousands of runners ready to do their utmost and push their bodies to the limit to get a personal best.

Unfortunately for spectators, sometimes that means having to view some kinda disgusting stuff. Marathoners, apparently, can get in such a zone they ignore all the signals their body is sending them to take a break.

Here are five examples. Fair warning: These include some stuff you'd rather not see. So think before you click.

5. Bleeding nipples

They can make strong men cry. And everyone else cringe.

4. Peeing
We guess if you've told yourself you're not going to stop and use a porta-potty, it's probably a good idea to just let it go through the shorts as opposed to taking them down. Although why she just didn't let fly while she was still running, we'll never know. It would be like the marathoner's version of tubing on the Guadalupe.









3. Vomit
This one we can understand. Although maybe we can't understand doing it so publicly. And we can only assume carbo-loading is the reason for the nuclear-yellow tint of what's coming out of the mouth.

2. Blood
So she scraped her knee, what's the big deal? Well, actually, this is a somewhat famous picture of Uta Pippig, and she is winning a race despite having a quite flowing period going on at the time. If you want to look closely at the crotch, you can see.

The period one doesn't make sense. If it were, it would be allll over her thigh and never hit a shadowed part of under the knee, especially making a line right under the cap.

First off, she poured water on her legs to clean herself up a bit. 


But, it's actually much worse than that. It's not just blood on her, but also diarrhea. And though they thought it was from menstruation, they found out later that the blood was actually from the diarrhea. 


Her name is Uta Pippig and is a product of East Germany. That picture is of her becoming the first woman to win the Boston Marathon 3 times in a row. 


It was the last race she ever finished. She got busted for having high levels of testosterone in her blood and was banned for 2 years. But she won the appeal... in Germany... it was a sham really. her excuses included, but were not limited to... a cold, the food she ate, an irregular period, IBS... She lined up lots of paid experts to back her claims and she won the appeal. But she never raced again.

How come its so acceptable for people to poop and pee in public when theyre running some stupid marathon, but if i do it when im drunk i get arrested?

@Will Did you pee and poop your pants? Or did you drop your pants to do it? it's not illegal to do it in your pants. It's the exposing yourself that's illegal.

Sorry, that was the London Marathon, which set a worlds best time for a women's only race. She had already set the WR by then.

Actually, the picture in 4 is Paula Radcliffe. She wasn't peeing. She stopped to take a crap in the middle of setting the women's marathon world record.

I'm almost certain the "Peeing" pic should be a "Poop" pic. ESPN The Magazine ran an article a couple of months back about athletes that have lost bowel control during athletic endeavours, and that pic was included. The woman was interviewed about it. She stopped, squatted by the rail and pulled her shorts to the side, and dropped the kids off. She then continued the race.

I've experienced the bleeding nipples before (now I put pasties or band aids on over them), and I've puked on several occasions after a long run, but...I certainly made sure my "lady needs" were properly addressed and I've definitely NEVER peed or pooped...but if you gotta go, you gotta go. This definitely gives me new respect for the marathoners! I'll stick to my four miles a day, thank you. :)

Places to go can be non existent for extended periods. I looked for a place to go in the Boston for four miles, which shlowed me down. Fortunately in the end I did not need to go.
