Stomach upset after longer runs???

Does anyone else get upset stomach after running? I guess it doesn't have to be longer runs, but that appears to be when it happens to me. I'm not sure what causes it, but my stomach can sometimes be upset for a few days.

A little, but not for several DAYS. I run in the morning, on an empty stomach, and usually have a small glass of water before, a big glass of water about 20 minutes after, and then breakfast an hour later. That works for me. Too much water before makes me feel instantly sick.

Try experimenting with what you eat and drink (or don't eat and drink) before and after. Maybe you'd be best on an empty stomach. Maybe you're getting dehydrated. Maybe you aren't getting enough AFTER the run. Maybe you're getting too much. There's lots of factors. If it persists, I'd see a doctor.

Here's a FAQ:
