Hi Man! I too have ulcerative colitis. I was diagnosed back in January of 2001. I was actually at the Chicago Marathon in 2000 when I have my first bought with it. Ended up not racin and came home. After a rough period, I finally found a medication that worked for me as well as my running and healthy living that's helped me. Was so cool finding you on WellSphere!!
