Why do some runners who push themselves really hard throw up?

Running takes blood away from your digestive system... maybe then your stomach figures that you should eject the unused ballast!

Do you want the scientific, spiritual, social, political, or poetic reason?

If you've got five reasons, I'll take five.

In track, if you didn't barf at the end of your race, you didn't run hard enough.

I never saw Carl Lewis barf.

It's a misery that non-runners will never understand, a painful misery that is cleansing to the body and soul, a kind of purging of imperfections and soulessness and a tool that says "you pushed hard and did not give up but you are still human". It's a check and balance system to let us know our limits and inspire us to achieve greater grace through training harder so as not to throw up again!
