I agree. I'd much prefer to pee outside than a porta potty. Porta potties give me the willies.
They're making that sh!t up! I'm not scary!

Okay, my problem with peeing outside was not that it's "dirty," but uncomfortable and um, let's just say unconventional. I'm still trying to deal with the unconventionality of porta potties. Peeing in public, let's just say, not happening. :?

You just haven't had to go bad enough yet. Just wait.

One advantage of growing up running wild in the woods and streams is that I learned to pee outside before I can remember.

bahahaha... my very last run.. (before my knee injury :()
i ran for 48 minutes and for more than half that time.. OMG I HAD TO GOOOOOO...
i totally blame sands for talking about it in her thread which i had just read right before i left for my run. i finally had to stop and go across the street to the little convenience store to borrow the facilities.. I think if i didn't have to go so bad, i might have run for a full hour.. i'm kinda glad i didn't though since i'm pretty sure that's the run that damaged my knee (and i'm still not even sure how)!!!

I did write about what?
I hope whatever it was it was not my fault that you hurt your knee.
