One thought on “Living and training with ulcerative colitis

  1. Hey Kano, I finally got around to reading the entire post after procrastinating. I think I was afraid of reading this and being reminded that we are only human. I think I knew mostly what you had written with out reading it my self and that may have been why It took so long to get to. I hate being sick, the idea of it the feeling of it and of course living with it. The thought of having to deal with colitis everyday would eat me up inside too. I would feel so personally responsible for what it is that Im feeling, regardless if it Colitis or something else, I just know if I could handle it as well as you have. Of course its not your fault, we all make choices but a lot of what happens to us is out of our hands and is result of genetics, environmental, toxins and stress. You’ve done a great job staying mental strong . Your focus and determination are truly inspiring despite your continued struggle. Im happy your healthier now and have found some sort of balance where you can continue to train, work and be there with the family. Just keep in mind to listen to what your body is telling you. Make every work out and train session count but also not to over due it. Nothing is more important then your health and family, with out one you could lose the other. Stay strong Kano and don’t burn your self out yet, so I can proudly race along side you one day in Kona!
