Coach: Kim Loeffler
Running has always been a passion for Kim. She started running in the 7th grade and went on to run cross country and track for the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. After college she moved to Boston to pursue her Masters Degree in Exercise Physiology. Her competitive drive never faded and she eventually caught the Ironman bug. She has spent the past  ten years racing as a Professional Triathlete. Her career highlights include a top U.S. finish and 8th place overall at the Ironman World Championships, two U.S. Ironman National Championship titles, a 70.3 National Championship title and a combined ten Ironman podium finishes.

As a new mom of a 5 month old daughter, her goals have evolved. She has joined a great team of coaches at ON TRACK where she mentors athletes of all abilities. Kim is looking forward to sharing her passion and helping new marathoners realize that with determination and discipline, anything is possible.
