Running can trigger the bowels for a few reasons, but most runners handle the urge differently. Loading Something is loading. Tamara Torlakson’s digestive tract is a well-oiled machine.

Nothing was different the day of the Mountains 2 Beach Marathon, her sixth race of the 26.2-mile distance, in 2018. And yet, about halfway through the race, she
