"I am so grateful that I decided to train with Katie! I have always thought of myself as a "slow" runner, but after working with her for just a few months, I improved my easy pace by 1 min and 40 seconds per mile, and ran a 1/2 marathon almost an hour faster than the first time! I am so excited about the future of my running!"
"I sought out Katie a few months after having my first baby. Pregnancy had taken a toll on my body and I wanted to lose the extra weight I had gained, knowing that I would feel better and have more energy to take care of my family each day. I’ve always struggled to maintain a consistent fitness routine, starting something only to quit a few weeks later. It was humbling to ask for help, but I knew I would benefit from the accountability, planning, education, and encouragement that Katie’s coaching had to offer. What started as a pursuit to shed weight developed into an appreciation for a higher level of fitness I never thought possible. Katie has developed my drive to dig deep, become stronger, and set new goals for myself in terms of speed and endurance. Months later, I signed up for a 5K and was amazed at my time. I saw huge progress from following the customized fitness plan she had created for me, and walked away from that race with even bigger, faster goals. As a mother, Katie understands that prioritizing exercise and good nutrition can be difficult when your days are so full. But as a coach, she has helped me fight for what matters to me most and recognize that the time I invest in my health each day benefits not just myself, but contributes to the wellbeing of my whole family.”
Katie has been the most encouraging and inspirational person I could ask for while helping me achieve my running goals! Even though I'm over 1,000 miles away from her, she's been so engaged since the beginning over 2 years ago. I'm faster, stronger, and overall so much happier since I took the leap into the running world and I know I couldn't have done it without her. Looking forward to progressing even more as a runner and working with Katie for years to come!
