Another reason not to use female urinals!

Sorry to be dense, but...........................female urinals?

Erm, how do they differ from "normal" loos?

(It's been a while since I raced, as I'm sure you can tell)

I don't know, i didn't go in there, but i did notice some of the ladies were holding cardboard cup type things as they were waiting in the queue.

I can't imagine they're the easiest of things to use, but at least they can't be as unpleasant as what i came across in the portaloos yesterday

I've used one at an outdoor concert - it was certainly better than queuing for twenty minutes

It had metal troughs at about thigh level, and you used a cardboard gizmo to direct the wee into the trough.

Easier with trousers than if wearing a skirt, I should think.

I've been trying to find a picture, with no luck.

They had them at the end of the GNR. So befuddled was I by that point, I tried to use the cardboard funnel-thingey the wrong way round.

Those funnel things are called P(ee) Mates. I think I got one in a pre-VLM goody bag last year.

Never used it as I'm guessing it gets messy.

Same as a 'she wee' - thing is - there shouldn't be anything to see - bliddy useful when you are out in London and there's nowhere to go. Out in the sticks the bushes - oops shrubbery is fine.

 at this.

I'm sure I heard some anti feminist the other week saying that "they'll be trying to pee standing up next".

Seems we're there already

Well i've seen it all !   I bet Nasa came up with that one as well.
18/04/2011 at 23:23
I mean literally, i have'nt actually seen it !

For a second then Old Timer i thought you were going to be the one to confess at peaking.

I did notice the female urinals but thought how odd. How the hell can you fit a funnel
up your backside. Couldn't you all do a Paula Radcliffe. Oh and it wasn't me looking.

Not too hot on female anatomy, Runnerman?  That's not where pee escapes........

The clue is in the word URINAL, runnerman.

For number twos you'd have to queue for the portaloo!

The queue for the female urinal was a complete joke. Literally HUNDREDS long with less than five minutes to the start. I think people were curious about peeing like a man.

I abandoned all hope off getting to a loo and weed along with half of my pen right behind the advertising hoardings just by the start! I hope the helicopters enjoyed the view!

I don't care who saw my arse - if you can't get enough loos for people to use then dn't blame them when they're desperate and about to run 26 miles,

Half of Birmingham saw your @rse a few days before, LB, so it only seems fair that the rest of us get a peek.

I used them last year but couldn't use the cardboard funnel - my bladder said THAT'S NOT RIGHT and refused to "let go" when I was standing up! I turned round and hovered over the urinal "basin" and nature then took its course... Now have a lot more sympathy for people with "shy" or overactive bladders ...
