Hi, my name is Liz Joyce. I am a self-employed personal trainer. Outwardly I have the appearance of being the picture of health, but the driving force behind my involvement with the Whistler Half Marathon and Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is that I have Ulcerative Colitis. When you think of someone that lives with the daily uncertainty of a chronic illness, you may wonder, who is this person? What does the face of someone with Colitis look like? Well, this is me.
