Katie is a music teacher who has run in over 35 Bishop’s Events. She started running in 2012 when “my extended family members were starting their running journey, and I thought: ‘If they can do it, I can do it’. My friend invited me to run a 5k race, which I did (and felt I was going to die). But, I loved it and immediately signed up for a race the following week!
Six years later, she is running around 25 races a year, but says if she had the time and money, she would race every weekend! Her biggest running accomplishment has been completing runDisney’s Dopey Challenge in 2014, which consisted of four days of races – a 5k, 10k, half marathon, and marathon.  You can find her running in her SparkleSkirt, that are “comfortable, cute, and have lots of pockets!”  Through running, Katie has found “more confidence in myself that I can do anything that I put my mind to! I am more apt to talk to people, draw attention to myself with festive outfits, and to try different things.”
