Gutsy Runners

Do you suffer from IBD (Irritable Bowel Disorder) and want to start or keep running?
The experts say that running is one of the best ways to control Crohn's, Colitis, IBS, etc. But, it is very hard to run if you're constantly running out of steam. These chronic disorders do not allow for the system to process and distribute food appropriately, and at times, not at all.
When your body is depleted of precious nutrients, vitamis and minerals it's tough enough to function in a day, but even worse to be able to stay running.
I am looking to form a support group for runners. I have looked and posted on-line looking for help, advise and guidance with no results.
This group is to exchange ideas, tips and triumphant results. I know that I am not alone in this but yet have failed to make the connection with other fellow runners that want to start or keep running.
My biggest advise is to not give up, no matter what. Stay on the medication, it's the only way to control flareups. I was very stubborn when I was first diagnosed with Crohn's in January of 2011, I was convinced that I could control it with diet and exercise. I quickly ended up back in the hospital in June of 2011. My running came to an abrupt end and I was devastated. I finally started running again this January and have had two flareups, but thanks to being on medication and controling what I eat it has only lasted a few days each time.
Tell us, what is your story?
