Kara Zubrowski

100 pounds of weight loss, first triathlon ever and qualifies for nationals. Amazing!

Kara Zubrowski has been a beacon of light in the Skaneateles community for the last two years.  Her story is amazing, her power to ‘overcome’ is apparent and her ability to ‘inspire’ is infectious.  A graduate of Skaneateles High School and now a first year teacher in the field of ESL (English as a Second Language), Kara has taken the courage to overcome and challenged herself to be identified by her achievements.  Four years ago, Kara was struggling with where she was personally.  At 240 pounds, she new it was time to do something with her life and reverse the trends to get out of the rut she was in.

Dissatisfied with her employment situation and her weight gain, she quit her job, went back to school and joined the Skaneateles YMCA.  Her life and confidence has taken a new direction and she has never looked back.  Since joining the YMCA, Kara has lost 100 pounds, has competed in 3 half marathon events, had a piece published about her in Self Magazine and at the inaugural Gillie Girl Sprint Triathlon in 2012, Kara qualified for nationals.  What makes this achievement even more special…she had never done a triathlon before.
Kara has become a great community leader.  Before relocating to Maryland to teach, she taught spin classes at the Skaneateles YMCA, trying to help others find the same motivation she did.  Here is to you Kara Zubrowski for being a Rock Star in our community.  Keep up the good work and continue inspiring and changing the lives of everyone around you.
