Greg Kalt is a colorectal cancer survivor who’s is also an Ironman triathlete. He races Ironman with a colostomy bag. Greg started racing Ironman after his diagnosis and surgery. His story is one not only of overcoming but exceling. There are so many great logistical takeaways from this episode for patients who might’ve been hesitant about racing with their bag and for all athletes because I think Greg is a true embodiment of an endurance athlete. Nothing stops us and he shows that day in and day.
