Hi! I’m Alex Kimble — also known as “Coach K ” among the team. I was a late bloomer to running. I initially was soccer player, but decided to run the Bellin one summer and really enjoyed it. A few weeks later, I attended some captain’s practices at my high school and immediately fell in love with the sport. From that point on, I have continued my running journey: qualifying and running at State my junior year of high school, running Division 1 and Division 3 Collegiate Cross Country, working at Run Away Shoes, and now coaching at NDA! My favorite part of running is doing it with others and sharing a laugh, a story along the way. This is my 6th year assisting under Coach Gard and I can easily say that this is truly one of the best programs I have ever encountered and I am blessed to be a part of it!
