THE STORY:

Hi, my name is Kim AuBuchon. I live, work, and run in St. Louis, MO. I try to live a healthy lifestyle and lead by example. I started running about 9 years ago and it has become a true passion of mine. To date I have completed several marathons, half marathons, and shorter road races. I am also a running coach and I love being able to share the joys and benefits of fitness with others.
This October I will be competing in Ironman Louisville. I have never tried a triathlon before, but after seeing several friends cross the finish line of their first Ironman last year I felt compelled to sign up right away. However, I have never swam or biked before. Ever. But I’m not one to let a little technicality stop me. I thought this would be a fun challenge and a hopefully motivating endeavor.
To prompt myself to sign up, train, and compete in something as huge as an Ironman I knew I needed a bigger cause. I suffered my own health scare last year where I spent weeks in the hospital. I’m convinced that my health was the only thing that saved my life. I wanted to dedicate this race to a worthy cause that motivates people to take charge of their own health. Enter Families ROC. My co-worker and best friend, Kristen Jorgensen’s family started this charity when their mother was suffering from ovarian cancer. I also lost my grandmother to the disease almost 20 years ago.
Families ROC has been in existence for 10 years and is dedicated to ovarian cancer research. Almost all of the donations collected are given to the Siteman Center for Advanced Medicine. Please support me as I swim, bike, and run myself to exhaustion to support Families ROC, ovarian cancer awareness, and research. All the miles, for all the women.
