Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself – Kimi Walker, Wellness Coach

Kimi Walker, Fitness & Wellness Enthusiast

It’s been 3.5 years since my last fitness & wellness related blog post. Some things have changed. Some things have remained the same.

I’ve been through a lot of changes personally and professionally. I have relocated and changed careers. I’ve dealt with the turbulence of ‘starting over’.

Since last blogging, I have learned the importance of taking care of myself and how to deal with setbacks.

I have plummeted myself back into the world of blogging, content creation, fitness and wellness, and coaching this year.


I wanted to reintroduce myself back into blogging world this year by attending events with fellow bloggers. So far, I have attended a Black Bloggers United meet-up in Indianapolis and BlogHer’s annual conference (#BlogHer17) in Orlando, FL. I had a blast at both events!  I learned a lot of information and met a lot of wonderful people!

 Fitness & Wellness

To reintroduce myself back into fitness and wellness, I ran two half marathons. I have not participated in a half marathon since 2013 when I was swept off the course at Disney’s Princess Half-Marathon around the 8-mile marker.

I was able to participate in the Rock ’N’ Roll D.C. Half Marathon in March and the She Power Half Marathon in June. I loved both of the races and had a great time at both races. I ran the Rock ’N’ Roll D.C. Half Marathon with two of my friends from FAMU.

I ran the She Power Half Marathon by myself in Indianapolis, but I met a lot of nice people from Black Girls Run Indy at the expo and before the race. Everyone from BGR Indy was extremely friendly and completely made me feel part of the group.

Wellness Coaching

I re-emerge and reintroduce myself into Wellness Coaching, I started on another wellness coaching certification. I am going through the Wellcoaches certification program and have learned a lot of information that will help me refine my craft of wellness programming, education, and coaching.

The ball is rolling in the right direction, and I hope to continue going in the right direction! Stay tuned for all the exciting things I have planned and the new initiatives I will roll out in the future!!
