  • Years Running: 18
  • Years with Austin Fit: 10+

  • Goal: I'd like to help someone train to complete their first marathon and, for myself, complete the training season injury free!

Kim first joined Austin Fit in 2001 to support her friend with training to run a marathon, then caught the bug herself. She doesn't believe there is a better way to decompress than to explore Austin on foot with new and old friends while talking about food. She has made peace with the hills of Austin realizing they are unavoidable. As much as Kim loves to watch everyone reach their goal of running a half or full marathon, she loves the journey each training season brings even more, shared by a community of positive runners and lots of laughter.
