My name is Kimberly and I'm 26 years old. I've never been very active but after getting married I realized that there was a lot I wanted to accomplish before starting a family. Running a marathon is one of them. While that was my initial reason for starting to run, there are thousands of other reasons why I continue, health being one of them. The changes in my body and mind that I've seen, even after just running for a few months, have been amazing. My first marathon is set of October 11th, 2009 in Chicago. Follow me on the journey of a TOTAL running newbie, injuries, setbacks, victories and all from 0 to 26.2!
