Doctor can evaluate: Brown urine means go to the doctor (brown coloring can be from blood cells breaking, muscle cells breaking, etc...). An evaluation is needed now, before things get worst. Tests can be done to find out why the urine is brown. Overexertion in sports activities can lead to muscle cells breaking down. Hopefully, there won't be permanent kidney damage.
