I Am Asking For A Friend... Not Me.

Uhmm, just curious...

A friend of mine wants to know,

Does running cause hemorrhoids?

She is just curious-not because she has hemorrhoids... but just in case she may happen to get them after she has just recently started jogging.

She would really like to know.

I have never gotten hemorrhoids from running or heard of anyone else doing so. So tell your "friend" that it must be something else.

Hey, speaking of freakish bodily mishaps that may or may not be caused by running, what was that someone said about blood in the mouth being normal? I was half considering taking up running until I read that...

I've not heard of that, but maybe if (not you) have dealt with them before. Somehow I escaped hemorrhoids even after birthing 5 babies.

I guess google it ...

Hemorrhoids are caused because "your friend" is NOT running but sitting around watching soaps & eating bon-bons OR yelling for the sweet little neighborhood kids to get the *%$# out of "your friend's" yard and away from "your friend's" front door! All the yelling causes the neighbors to put in earplugs and start drinking while Hemorroids are popping out all over/up "your friend"!

Tell "your friend" I've got the video recorder out and ready to record the "Jogging"! I'll be the one in the purple mini van yelling words of encouragement--like "get your fat hemrroid butt/#%^ moving or I'll run you over like road kill!" Hey girlfriend, no need to thank me--that is what neigbors do for each other!

Having been accused of running in circles for years, the only calamity ive experienced was the running disease referred to as "gauling" which went away with the elimination of applejuice as a breakfast tonic.

Geez, how fast do you run?

Cris said...

Michelle... why don't you go running with "my friend?" I am sure she would enjoy the company. Do you think you can pull yourself away from that Jazzercize class to do a real woman's workout? Hmmm?

Cris-- Please thank "your friend" for the lovely invitation to go "jogging". Although the benefits of jogging "your friend" sound um interesting: running shorts jammed up your butt crack; cellulite on the back of my legs jiggling; my butt bouncing up and down as if I were on a mechanical bull; and we can't forget the wonderful hemroids--I'm going to pass!
Besides I have to continue exploring my inner stripper while doing those Jazzercize routines. I'm pricing poles for the bedroom!

You know there is always Colin and his cross country team for "your friend" to run with. The plus side of running with them is that when "your friend" collapses there are plenty of them to drag her off the side of the road! "-)
