Pain in my side

M and I had scheduled a training run for Sunday afternoon. But too much food and too much napping pushed the run back to Sunday evening. I jumped on the treadmill and started my 5 minute warm-up, and was immediately hit with a pain in my lower left side. I dropped my speed down and proceeded thinking the "stich" would work itself out.  But it didn't. It kept getting worse, and rather than listen to my body and stop - I kept running. After 23 minutes, I collapsed in the floor in severe pain.  It took nearly ten minutes for the throbbing in my side to go away.
I am not sure what caused the pain, I think it may have been running on too full of a stomach. But I know this much, next time my body says STOP....I'm listening.
