Mamma Chia Athlete Spotlight: Adam Kimble
On February 15th, Mamma Chia sponsored athlete and “ultrarunner” Adam Kimble will attempt to beat the Guinness World Record for the fastest crossing of America on foot (a record that has stood still for 36 years)!
The standing record was set by American Frank Giannino Jr., who ran from San Francisco to New York from September 1st to October 17th, 1980. Giannino’s journey lasted 46 days, 8 hours and 36 minutes. Adam hopes to complete the trek in 45 days or less. Wow!
His course begins in Huntington Beach, California, and will finish in New York City. Adam will run through a total of 16 states with an estimated distance of 3,030 miles.
We are absolutely thrilled to be supporting him through this incredible endeavor. We hope that through our support, Adam will maintain the strength and stamina he needs to achieve his goal.
“Our journey across the country will require an immense amount of mental and physical endurance,” said Adam. “The magic of Mamma Chia’s organic foods and beverages will not only give me energy and strength for my body, but for my mind as well!”
Loaded with protein, fiber, Omega-3s and more, we hope that our products will serve as the fuel to power his soul’s purpose!
What is his purpose? He hopes to inspire people all over the world to pursue their passions, to push the limits of his mind and body, and finally, to raise awareness of impossible2Possible (i2P), a nonprofit dedicated to educating, inspiring, and empowering youth to reach beyond their perceived limit and achieve the “impossible.”
