Trial attorney Kim Alley’s competitive streak extends well beyond the courtroom. Last weekend, Kim successfully completed her first road race – the 13.1 mile Bay State Half Marathon in Lowell. Kim finished the race which loops twice from the Tsongas Arena along the Merrimack River to the Rourke Bridge and back in 1 hour and 56 minutes, beating her 2 hour goal by 4 minutes. Kim finished in the top 24% of women out of the 1641 total competitors. Not bad for a first race! That could be because Kim received her training pointers from her sister, a semi-professional athlete and trainer in Colorado, who mistakenly believed Kim was training for a full marathon. The extra training helped Kim to finish strong and even has her thinking of attempting a full marathon for her next race.
