A surefire way to get rid of a side stitch

Ever had to stop or slow down your run by the nasty and painful feeling in the side of your stomach? Thats a side stitch.

Two of the most common causes are heavy eating and drinking before a run and by starting out too fast.

But how do you get rid of it once you have it?

Try this: slow down just a bit and exhale forcefully as your opposite foot hits the ground. For example, if you are having a side stitch in your right side, exhale as your left foot hits the ground. Do this for a few steps/seconds and your side stitch is sure to go away!
