Kim Nedeau is a life-long athlete and owner of Training Inclined, a coaching business that serves athletes seeking alternative training methods and injury prevention. She and her husband live in the woods of western Massachusetts where they share their love for endurance sports with their two teenagers and beloved German shorthaired pointer. She ran competitively in high school, at Brown University, and as an open athlete for a few years after college before starting a family. She returned to competitive running and ran some of her best races in her late 30s. Kim found her way to mountain running and was a member of the US Mountain Running team in 2016, where she placed 9th overall, first American, and helped the team win bronze in the World Mountain Running Championships. Kim's return to running involved a diverse approach that included a moderate amount of running, biking and strength, which in total added up to high volume training. This is the approach she now uses in her work with injury-prone athletes, those who want to avoid injury and those interested in longevity in the sport.
