    Stomach Discomfort a Week After a 50 Mile Race

    I raced the Leadville Silver Rush 50 on July 13th, and ever since about the Monday after, my stomach has been bugging me...mostly when sitting. Nothing excruciating that keeps me up at night or anything, but just a mild discomfort, and a lot of gas.

    Has anyone else experienced anything like this after a long race?

    Thanks!

    Did you drink water out of mud splashed bottles or from streams? You might have ingested a form of funky microorganism; maybe something like giardia?

    You know, yes. My bottle got splashed with both. Never though of that.
