Tips and Tricks to Keep Running with Crohn's and Colitis

Accidents just might happen, and that's okay

If you're a runner, unfortunately, you're going to have an accident eventually if you haven't already had one. It's just the nature of the disease. It can be really humiliating and uncomfortable for people to share, so most people don't like to talk about it, but it does happen. The nice thing is that most people who are runners do understand. Many who have a chronic condition like inflammatory bowel have a story about an on-the-go accident. And you know what? Healthy runners who don't have inflammatory bowel get them sometimes too. It's just life, and things happen.
