    Learn how Kit continued to run while she was pregnant and raising children for so many years. Her children range in ages 11 years apart with the last two being twins.  She started her running career at UCLA running the 440 and cross country.  Her teammates included world class athletes like Julie Brown, who ran the marathon in 1984 Olympics for the USA.  While a mom and school teacher, she continued running 1-2 marathons a year until 1 1/2 years ago when she turned 60 and started her second running life, running ultra marathons.  Recently she turned to running two marathons or longer distance a month.  She is very proud to be part of an elite group of runners called Marathon Maniacs (www.marathonmaniacs.com) where she achieved gold level by running 4 marathons in 47 days.


    Her husband of over 35 years is very supportive of her running passion and accompanies her as her personal chauffer at every race.  She teaches kindergarten in the Encinitas School District and is known as the Running Teacher.  She keeps her students very active by running 1 mile 2-3 times a week.  She often gets special requests by parents to have their kids in her class.  


    Some races you may have seen her at recently are, Jackpot 12 hr, St George Marathon, Calico, Surf City Marathon, Hoover Dam Marathon, Labor of Love Marathon, Sean O’Brien Marathon, Operation Jack, Leona Divide 50K, and she was recognized by the LA Marathon for marathon mom with the most kids.

    The 1929 Bunion Derby the most grueling ultra-marathon of all time

    in Sports

    On March 31, 1929 seventy seven men began an epic 3,554 mile footrace from New York to Los Angeles punishing their bodies an average of 46 miles for 78 days over mostly unpaved roads in hopes of winning $25,000 in prize money. The 1929 Bunion Derby is considered the most grueling ultra-marathon of all time.


    The event promoter Charlie Pyle put together a traveling Vaudeville show in hopes of raising the prize money, complete with dancing debutants, an all-girl band wearing pilot outfits and black faced comedians.  This is an amazing tale told by the author Charles B. Kastner.
