Had a lovely run on Saturday. I woke up at 4:45 and got ready. Josh was up and decided that he'd like to come too. It's lovely when your kids decide to run with you. He got ready quickly and just as we were about to leave the heavens opened. I don't mind running and having it rain on me once I'm out and sweaty but I don't like going out if it's already pouring. But I just had to suck it up. I had a 20k on my schedule and it was going to get done!
We arrived at the group's meeting place and I introduced Josh around. Then we got going. How demoralizing is it when your son, who runs once in a blue moon, just trots along effortlessly when you, who's been training consistently and hard, has to fight to keep up?
Anyway, we were running along when I heard a disturbing noise come from in front of me. Not long after I ran through a disturbing smell. Yep! Someone had farted! Cut the cheese! Blasted on the anal trumpet! Tooted his own horn!
It was rank! So I have a question on etiquette - if you are going to let one rip do you just let it fly or do you move to the side, make sure no one's in your line of fire and then let go? And as the recipient of said foul odour, is it acceptable to comment / cough / dry reach or does convention state that the passing should go unnoticed so as not to embarrass the passer?
