Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,
I get a side stitch about 2 miles into my run. It's so bad that I have to stop and walk until it goes away. My boyfriend thinks my sports bra is too tight. What do you think?

Dear becky,
 I think your boyfriend should get out of your sports bra. Seriously, the side stitch is really caused by a spasm of the ligaments that support the upper abdominal organs. The pan is usually on the right side and can be caused by weak abdominal muscles, Lack of fitness, anxiety, or ingesting certain foods or fluids prior to running. I would suggest strengthening your core, alternating your eating and drinking habits before you run and work on your form. Work on keeping your chest up and your hips forward and run with a relaxed upper body. If you feel a stitch coming on, try breathing deeply with your belly and exhaling forcefully.

Hydration Guideline for Runners


Three to six ounces every 15 to 20 minutes. Water is usually fine. For a tough run over 30 minutes, consider a sports drink to give you a kick of energy at the end.


Three to six ounces every 15 to 20 minutes. A sports drink with carbs and electrolytes will replenish sodium. Prefer gels? Chase them with water to avoid sugar overload.


Drink three to six ounces of sports drink every 15 minutes, after which use thirst as your main guide (drinking more if you're thirsty and less if you're not).


Replace fluids, drinking enough so you have to use the bathroom within 60 to 90 minutes postrun. Usually eight to 24 ounces is fine, but it varies based on running conditions.
