Katie started running a bit later in life beginning with the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta. She started off walking the Peachtree with a friend and realized she could do more. She ended up running 4 out of the 6 miles. When the race was over, she still had gas in the tank and decided to train for her first Half Marathon. She trained with the Atlanta Track Club and ran her first Half on Thanksgiving 2011. She never looked back…she has run countless races at all distances, including marathons.
The best part about running is the community. She has never met such supportive and wonderful people.After a few years, she decided it was time to give back, to help others the way she was helped. She is now a run leader with the Atlanta Track Club, helping others achieve their goals and enjoys motivating and pacing others. Running is her passion and she would love to pass that passion onto others. Her goal is to run a race in every state.
When she is not running, she works full time as an Event Coordinator/Party Planner and teaches piano lessons part time.
