  • Kim Mortensen

    I was at the Golden West Meet last weekend and saw Caitlyn Chock run 9:58 for the 3200. My question is: does anyone know what happened to Kim Mortensen? She holds the best prep 3200 time at 9:48. On the web, I can only find stuff about her from the late 90's. Anyone know if she's still around? Her record is so amazing, I figured I would have heard of her.

    Kim went to UCLA and had bad luck with injuries. she did well on the XC team her frosh year but then had a bad hamstring injury and didnt make the NCAAs. She was injured all spring, and then got a bad stress fracture at the start of the soph XC season.. i dont think she raced at all after that.

    maybe someone else knows more..

      The bane of so many women distance runners: eating disorder.

        realist is correct she was diagnosed as anorexic, and told to give up the sport.
