Local ultrarunning superstar, and all around nice person, Kami Semick has achieved another milestone in her ultrarunning prowess...she is the cover model for the March 2009 issue of UltraRunning Magazine. This is, no doubt, one of the most coveted honors for an ultramarathoner.
One main reason Kami is the current cover model is that she was voted Ultrarunning's Female Ultrarunner of 2008. In just 5 short years of ultrarunning, Kami has achieved a life-time worth of accomplishments. This past November was the highlight of her career, when she finished 2nd place in the World Championship 100k in Tuscani, Italy, and in doing so, helped the US women's team earn the team silver medal. That race is basically the Olympics of ultrarunning, and Kami earned the silver medal. Incredible.
Congratulations on an incredible 2008, Kami! And thanks for being so darn humble about it all.
