Kim Blazes Chicago TriathlonKim (and about 6,000 other athletes) participated in the Accenture Chicago Triathlon in August. She finished 103 of 6149 overall, 8th of 2078 women, and 2nd in her age group!
In June she competed in the 2007 USAT National Age Group Championship held in Oregon. Despite being out most of the past year rehabbing from a broken ankle, and this being only her second race ever at the Olympic distance, she finished an impressive 25th in the highly competive 25-29 age group! Here are some photos of her at the race.
Way to go, Kim!!
Kim continues to live and work in Chicago.
Before the broken ankle cut short her season last summer, she travelled to California for the
2006 Napa Valley Triathlon,
