    stitch cure bullshido

    Unstitch your side!

    If you're like most people, when you run, you exhale as your right foot hits the ground. This puts downward pressure on your liver (which lives on your right side), which then tugs at the diaphragm and creates a side stitch, according to The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Men. The fix: Exhale as your left foot strikes the ground.
    makes some sense. anyone concur?

    He was punching him like the collective karmic debt he'd accrued was coming to collections, mostly on his face.

    possible, but sounds like a psychosomatic "cure".

    Probably not that simple - more than just the liver is involved. You also have a spleen and stomach on the other side, guts all the way round, underneath. Sure, the liver may be more dense, but I'm not sure that's sufficient.

    Myself, I've been running for years, almost always breath out on right foot strike, almost never get stitches.

    See http://bjsm.bmjjournals.com/cgi/content/full/37/4/287 for a more modern view of the cause of stitches.

    i remember 'in though nose out though mouth' was my cross country coach's montra. After following his advice I never had a problem.

    I inhale every four steps and exhale the same (through those 4 steps, not quickly), so I don't see how that would do anything to me.
