Kicking Ass for Abby – Who’s In?

Posted Mar 25 2013 9:00am

Just as I’m starting to get my hiney back into training mode for some fall races , one of my favorite running bloggers (who happens to have ulcerative colitis and be training with Team Challenge in New York City this summer) gave me a another great reason to get going.


A virtual 5k of sorts. Abby is hosting a race that you can participate in anywhere. Here’s the basics, taken from Abby’s blog :

I’m hosting the Kick Ass (or Kick Butt) Virtual 5K to benefit Team Challenge on Tuesday, April 9th, 2013. Why April 9th? That was the date last year when I scheduled the surgery that would remove my colon. It was a very big and scary day for me but it was also the day I took steps to get my health and my life back.

For all the details on the Kick Ass (or Kick Butt) 5k, head to Abby’s blog . I’m all signed up to kick some ass in Chicago on April 9, and would love some company! E-mail me at if you decide to sign up. We can kick some ass together on the Lakefront!

Want to kick some ass with me? Doing a clever fundraiser of your own? Let me know!
