Hey! Has anyone done the Team Challenge or is anyone training for the Kona Half Marathon? I'm doing the Kona on June 28-as long as my health holds!

I've never done one, but I have looked into it. Really sounds like fun. I wanted to enter the one in Miami, but I haven't felt well enough.

Best of luck to you!

I have two friends (both now have jpouches after having had UC) that are doing the Kona team challenge.  Good luck with your training!

pushingforward: Team Challenge is run through the Crohns and Colitis Foundation of America. It holds half marathons and walkathons to raise money for research. If you sign up, they have professional coaches to help you train (weekly). Or one could just sponser someone else in the race. I think the one in Miami is this weekend.
