About Me

Welcome to Marin BreakfastKlub Runners!  My name is Keli Honsberger.   I’m 45, married and have two great kids ages 13 and 7.

I am an Ace-certified personal trainer and since 2001 I’ve completed 8 marathons, most recently the Big Sur International Marathon.    My goal is to complete 10 marathons by the time I’m 50.  I also teach outdoor fitness classes (OutFIT Marin) and train small groups for short and long-distance endurance events.

I love to run trails and feel lucky to live in Marin County where the hills are plentiful and steep!

I created this website so I could offer a forum for the person who wants to be active, wants to run, wants to like to run, wants to have fun running.   I enjoy training for races and love to talk to people about their running.  In addition to running I am studying to become a certified personal trainer and teach outdoor fitness classes.

It’s not the hard-core athletes  that motivate me, it’s my friend who completes her 100 day Yoga challenge or my neighbor who wants to move from power walking to running!   I’m inspired by someone making a positive change in their life and I want to be a part of it.

I think it’s important for women to be physically strong and I love to see my friends able to master a military push-up or to shave 10 seconds off their per mile pace!

I hope those of you who visit my website will feel inspired and motivated to continue on their road to good health or take that important first step.   I offer simple tips that the average person can implement in their daily life and I really try not to take myself too seriously.

Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to drop me a note or comment!

Now go run!

Keli 🙂

  1. Hi, Keli,

    Your mother-in-law forwarded your blog to me as she thought I might enjoy it. I live at Trilogy and started walking daily last Februrary and making smarter choices on the food that I put into my body. As a result I lost 50 lbs! My goal was 30 so I am extremely pleased. I am approaching my 68th birthday so probably will never run like you do, but I intend to keep up my daily walking and exercise routine.

    I wish I had been smart about my health at your age! Keep on running!

    • Hi Julie! Thanks for reading and most importantly, CONGRATULATIONS on your achievement! While I get my exercise by running, the more important message is to get moving, keep moving and take it one step at a time.

      All the best and again, great job on making such positive changes!
      Keli 🙂

  2. Dear Keli–I stumbled upon your blog on Active.com when I read an article you replied to. I’m inspired by your story. I will be 40 in 2 weeks!!! I started running last fall when my boys–ages 7, 9, 11 began school all day. I ran my first 5 K in December and May 8th I’m running my first 1/2 marathon! I’m a little nervous. I generally run about 3 times a week. I’ve been running 5-6 miles twice a week and then doing a long run on one day–recently I’ve achieved 13 miles. I am not in it to make any speed records, I’m happy to finish. I’ve never done anything like this before–basically I have neglected myself for nearly 10 yrs to care for children, work, and twist myself into a pretzel taking care of everyone else’s needs before my own. I would slink babies on my back and 2 in a double stroller and go walk–and attempt any way I could to stay active and excercise–but this is the 1st time I’ve paid a fee and signed up for a competitive race and had a specific goal that required me to train!!! When weather was bad here in NH I would supplement any runs I could with “The Firm” and weight work outs. Thursday will be my last “long run” before my race. Thanks for your inspiring and encouraging words and best of luck to you. I also like to write and have a blog–berlyspage.blogspot.com–Happy Running! Kim
