Ultraboyruns asks, 'what type of trail running poo are you?'

It's something we all do but it is also something that we generally avoid talking about - poo. If you can't handle a bit of trail running poo chat, this podcast isn't for you (YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED).Welcome to the penultimate episode of season 1 of Ultraboyruns: The Adventure Channel.As runners, many of us will have experienced the natural need to have a poo and this podcast looks at the kind of poo-related issues that runners might have had and the things we can do to mitigate the effects. More concerningly this is me baring my (poo)r bum cheeks to the scrutiny of my fellow runners and the wider podcast community.

I'll give you a clue - I wouldn't have done a podcast about it if I'd been on the losing side!This episode also starts my A-Z of adventures and we begin with the letter A.
