I've actually had to pay to fix 2 cars. Took the mirror off a Honda with my elbow after I hit something on the shoulder that tossed me out in the road
Well, until one Saturday when it actually did happen. I scrambled to a bathroom of a local fitness center and tried cleaning up. Needless to say, it was the most uncomfortable, muggy run back.

Was out on a 17 mile run. At mile 8 I started noticing things were unhappy down there. At 10 I was starting to suffer a bit. I knew there was a porto-potty in the park up ahead at mile 13... can I hang on until there? At mile 12 my guts gave a massive lurch and essentially said NO FUCKING WAY YOU WILL NOT MAKE IT! I pulled off the trail, ducked behind a bush, dropped shorts, squatted, and let loose. As I was hanging out there with my bare ass and giant pile of unformed poo, I considered coming back with only one sock. However, I happened to be wearing my favorite run socks that day and didn't want to give them up. So I made the bad mistake of just pulling up the shorts with the intention of running to the known porto-potty (at this point 0.75mi away) to finish the job.
So I kinda waddle-jogged to the porto-potty and finished what I started... but in the meantime I managed to really chafe myself badly back there. Lets just say everything related to stuff going on back there was sore and chafed for a few days.
Lesson learned: don't do long runs wearing your favorite socks. You never know when you might need to give them up.
This is my only "didn't make it" story. I have had plenty of "almost didn't make it" but those aren't as much fun.

I figure you aren't "really" a runner yet until you can tell a story something like this one :)

During college when I ran XC we were out one day on a run when it was snowing and one of the guys on the team had a blowout, he actually used snow to help clean himself up.

It is not a sure-fire cure for this problem. Sometimes it just happens anyway. However I fully agree here. I will delay getting any run started until I am certain I have pooped enough.
The funny thing was people asking me, who don't do tri's, if people do this normally since we pee on the bike.
Each day is what you make of it so make it the best day possible.
All that could not sink or swim, were just left there to float.
I have to believe he knew what happened because he didn't ask any questions and let me run :)
And the equally obvious take away - never ever pick up a lone sock/glove/headband found on the trail.
