About Me!

My name is Kim, and I am Barking Mad About Running! I started running in August 2011 with the goal of finishing a 5K. I ran that 5K in October, and made a new goal of running a 10K. Somehow, I got it in my head to train for a Half Marathon, and before I knew it, I had 2 scheduled for 2012! I was addicted! I added the WDW Marathon to my schedule along with even more Half Marathons!
Along the way I lost and gained 25 pounds, and am working on fine tuning my eating habits. I ran 13 Half Marathons in 2013, and 14 in 2014 as well as going Dopey. In 2016, I ran the NYC marathon! 2017 will bring on the Disney marathon and Chicago as well!
I am an ambassador for 
Skirt Sports


I am Half Fanatic #3034, Jupiter Level

I am a member of the PaceBook Running Club
and the PG Speed Demons


I am also an avid Fundraiser for MDA Team Monentum.

    Hello Kim,
    Just a quick email to ask if you would be interested in a ‘mutual’ following on twitter. I am currently following you now and am awaiting for your follow-back. (#FYI I do RT’s ‘anytime’ for all #Triathletes #Cyclists #UltraRunners #Marathoners #FitnessProfessionals who follow me on Twitter and have something important they want mentioned for support…)

    All the very best for the rest of 2013 & beyond Kim. Look forward to hearing from you…


  4. Hello,

    I am writing today in hopes of gaining your interest in reviewing the Dermagist Skin Care line on your blog. We often times do reviews / giveaways with bloggers such as yourself. I saw your site and thought perhaps it would be a good match for us both. Usually we provide you with a free product of your choice, such as the Complete Rejuvenation System. You can put a picture and a review on your website and even run a sweepstakes for your readers to win a Free Treatment (depending on which one you choose yourself) of their own. Then, when someone does win, you can simply email us the name and address of the winner and I will have one sent out to them right away. Our website is www.dermagist.com. Please take a chance to review our products as we have many products and different packages.

    What we ask for from you is this. You must link to us from your review. If you choose to do a giveaway on your website, we ask that your contestants like us on Facebook and comment as to why they like or are excited to try the products, etc.
    If this is of interest to you or you have any questions, please email me back and we can make arrangements to take the next step. Thanks for your time and your consideration. Have a pleasant day!

  5. Hi there,
    I just stumbled to your blog and though I would say hello! I love that you run Disney! I did the 2013 wdw marathon too. It was a hot one! Can't wait to read more!

  6. Hi Kim,
    My name is Hazel Kwon and I'm an assistant professor at Arizona State Univ. I found your blog from Twitter profile. I know that this is not the best channel for this type of message and would like to ask your kind understanding in advance for this sudden contact.

    My colleagues and I are doing an academic research about the values and utilities of online badges, supported by MacArthur Foundation. I found your recent tweet on Fitbit badge and thought that you might be interested in helping our research by taking a short (5 mins) survey. Were you aware that Yelp posts the badge on behalf of you, and if so, why are you letting them post the information? Is it related with your identity as a runner? We are hoping to hear from up to 200 badge users like you, and would like to offer participants a chance of winning one of four Amazon gift cards ($50) to show our appreciation for your time and interest.

    If you could spare just 5 mins, could you please kindly help my research by doing a brief survey? The link is here: https://asuclas.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_bgwV1874lb03F77

    If you have any question or concern, please don't hesitate to contact me via email (khkwon@asu.edu). I'd be more than happy to tell you more about our project!
    Thank you!

    Best regards,
