Just enjoyed listening to the Trail Runner Nation podcast (courtesy of my husband, who is actually the running fanatic – I have yet to be bitten but that particular bug). I liked the Nepal info – I just moved to Kathmandu 2 weeks ago! So that was topical for me. But it’s the discussion about how women runners’ bodies change during their period, and how they should take this into account in their training, that made me think I should comment on the site – I want to really recommend a product for that time of the month to any female runners. It is called the mooncup (there are UK and USA versions – I use the UK manufactured one). It’s just brilliant, and I highly recommend it. I’m sure it will make the lives of female runners still using tampons or pads that much easier – google it, and try one! I know it will revolutionise how you run!! :)

  1. I’ve been using the mooncup for quite some time now and I too recommend it! I first thought that it might leak but was positively surprised. The best thing is that you don’t feel that you are wearing it and it doesn’t disturb your inner environment. I once wore it on a raceday without actually having my period, only suspecting that I might get it that same day. One issue less to worry about 🙂

  2. Yes, it is something that I would highly recommend – and not only to runners… To me the most important aspect of it remains the ecological one… no waste – especially when you trek, hike or run in the mountains – in nature in general – it makes so much easier to leave no trace!
