Thanks for visiting the Running With AS website. The site is dedicated to raising the awareness of Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS), and tracking my efforts to run seven marathons on seven continents. My goal is to help bring more attention to AS; including any efforts which will help promote faster recognition of the symptoms, more effective treatments, and the search for a cure.
Read a few quick facts about AS to understand more about the disease and how it can affect people.
Please be certain to share the following 12 question test with anyone you think might have AS after you’ve read more about it here.
Read more about my background and the current challenge of running seven marathons around the world. Part of this initiative is aimed at helping to reduce the average amount of time between the onset of AS, and it’s eventual diagnosis, which is currently in the range of 7-10 years.
