Adam Kimble is an ultramarathoner and motivational speaker from Tahoe City, CA. Adam played Division-I baseball at Bradley University prior to developing his passion for ultrarunning, and after graduation in the summer of 2009 ran his first ever race (5k) near his hometown in Minooka. It resulted in very bad cramps and a lot of pain, but fortunately it also came with a second-place age group finish! Once the pain subsided, Adam decided his racing days weren’t done and trained to complete his first half marathon in 2011. A half marathon led to the Chicago Marathon in 2012, and his first ultramarathon (50k) in 2014. With each and every race, the question became “what else is my body capable of?” Following three top-three finishes in 100-mile races, a 60-day transcontinental crossing of the USA, 60 days alone in the wilderness on Discovery Channel’s The Wheel, and a 31-day self-supported crossing of Great Britain, the limits are nowhere close to being reached.
