I can't run because of arthritic knees and chronic bursitis in hip, but, when I think of doing things like this, I think of 2 people. Michael Jarard, the football player for Miami, who plays with his Crohn's. And the guy in the band, sorry I'm so bad with names, who tells about having a bm right on stage and kept on playing! (He's in one of the really big name, famous bands.) But then, rich and famous can get away with a lot of things "normal" folks can't!

Wow. So excited to hear that you ran the half marathon. I just signed up to do it as well. My daughter is affected with both crohn's and colitis and I want to support her and help to find a cure for IBD. However, I'm really worried about raising all the funds needed to make it to the race. Could you give me some pointers?

My gosh this thread brings back nightmares. No, I no longer run, not only because of the belly thing but my knees are now arthritic and too problematic. Sometime I'll tell you about the only Half Marathon I ran. I developed the maltodextrin in 2005. That may also be when they started using it as an ingredient more. When this began there were several times I was incontinent of stool and not near bathrooms. It was awful. I alleviated things a bit but it didn't matter how I ate, what I took, I never was able to get back to running without extreme gas and a small amount of incontinence.

Dare to be what others fear you might become!

Team Challenge really is a great program, I can't say enough nice things about it. The idea of fundraising was kind of daunting - but it was actually much easier than I expected that it would be. People really are so willing to donate when they see that you're doing something awesome for yourself. Look around for some informational meetings about the December 5th 1/2 marathon in Vegas in August.

I like that, "Zero to the closest bathroom in no time flat" So true!

I have to say, my first thought when I saw the topic was, "Hey, we're terrific at sprinting!" emoticon I can go from zero to the closest bathroom in no time flat! I can't imagine trying to run when my guts are being cranky. I won't even go for long walks unless I know where the bathrooms are. I'd think dehydration would be a major issue, too.

Good suggestions on running and figuring out what to eat to make it less problematic. I know I prefer afternoon exercise, since mornings can be tough regarding trips to the bathroom!

I recently ran a half marathon with Team Challenge. It's a great organization, I suggest you check it out! The coaches helped us a lot with ideas of what to eat/what not to eat before, during, and after running to minimize GI side effects. One thing I noticed for myself (as a Crohn's patient) is that it's much better for me to run on an empty stomach or with a very small portion of carbs. There were some times on training runs where I did have to take some urgent bathroom breaks, but I was able to make some adjustments so that way I knew what would trigger problems for me. I think the truth is that you need to experiment to see what works for you and what does not.

I am wanting to hear from other IBD suffers who have run races. I want to run but I am so afraid I will get bad diarrhea from nerves alone. I would love to hear any tips etc from people. Thanks.
