I was diagnosed with IBS many years ago and have always controlled it. I found running last year to cope with my depression. So far I have only run on the treadmill in my garage as I have not been able to go out due to getting anxious about not having facilities nearby. I am planning on running a Race for Life 5k on June 23rd as I do not want this to control my life anymore. I wondered if anyone else had experienced this or had any tips to help get through it. I love the atmosphere of the Race for Life so feel this is the best race to start with. I don't want to be stuck in my garage forever. I would love to hear from you and grateful for only positive comments not negative. Thanks!
