Needing a No.2 toilet break on a run causing race day anxiety

    I'm posting this on behalf of a family member who is understandably too embarrassed to ask the question herself.

    My wife and I signed up for the race series and I've asked her to sign up. She hasn't raced before and I think she would love the experience. She's running about a year.

    She's confided in me that she's afraid to because far too often on runs she needs an urgent toilet break, limiting her to keeping close to her house, or somewhere where a toilet break is possible.

    She eats healthily, doesn't drink or smoke or have any issues generally in that regard.

    I told her I would ask here to see if anyone else has experienced this and figured out a way to overcome it.

    Visiting the toilet before she heads out obv sorts it out but the race series events are all morning starts leaving her anxious about signing up.

    Any tips or advice?
