Kim Bessler is Embarking on the Running Trip of a Lifetime
Kim Bessler is embarking on a pretty amazing adventure this summer, and I’m glad I was able to catch up with her before she takes off.
When it comes to racing, Kim hasn’t done much of it (yet), but she’s a beast when it comes to exploring trails and climbing mountains.
