About Kimberly

Hi!  I’m Kimberly, a 22 year old college graduate living in Charlotte, NC.  I blog about my life as a runner.  Here is a little bit about my running history:

I ran my first race when I was ten years old, the one-mile “fun run.”  Absolutely no fun was had when I ran this race.  I experienced my first side stitch and cried and walked the entire time.  Ironically, I placed second in my age group and was awarded a medal.  (“I guess that wasn’t so bad…”)

I didn’t run again until I was 13 years old and decided to join the cross country and track teams at my middle school.  Since then, I haven’t stopped.  I ran competitively through high school.  In college, I did not join a team but I continued to run on my own.

Running has given me more than I ever expected.  It has taken me to beautiful places.  It has blessed me with life long friends.  It has taught me how to overcome obstacles, push myself, and never take a run to seriously (there’s always going to be another race).
But I have miles to go before I sleep…

Personal Records:

1 mile: 5:58

2 mile: 12:41

5k: 21:28

half marathon: 1:47:22
