Kick Ass 5k!!!

Happy National Autism Awareness Day!  This post is in blue to spread awareness for autism ;)

Man do I have a GREAT opportunity for you!!!
  One of the blogs I began reading recently, Run Stronger Everyday, has a great opportunity to support a worthy cause, experience some of the warm weather we (New Englanders) are experiencing lately, and  exercise for 3.1 miles!! What a win, win!!!
  Abby, the blogger behind Running Stronger Everyday, has (had, read her blog for more details) Ulcerative Colitis, an auto-immune disease that attacks the digestive system.   She has truly been through the ringer with this disease; one that affects many women I know (and men too, probably, I just don't know any).  
  Anyways, Abby is running the Chicago Half Marathon for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation.  To aide in her fundraising venture, she is hosting a Virtual 5K on April 9th, 2013. All participant's donate $15 to her fundraising page, and run, walk, bike, hope, jump or skip for 3.1 miles total.  Still not satisfied?!?!  Well, the amazing Abby is entering all participants into a raffle for miscellaneous gear. The exact items are not listed, but she does promise for the loot to be great! Ps- Abby moonlights as a Lululemon Ambassador... need I say more?!?!
  Wondering how you  join me on this journey to kick some ASS?
