Katie’s primary goal is for her athletes to have fun running AND feel good doing it! She places an emphasis on the work it takes to be competitive, while also teaching her athletes the appropriate rest and recovery techniques required to avoid injury. She is a big fan of the strength programming that Peak provides since this is an integral part of a runner’s success that is often neglected. Katie includes her PT perspective in coaching and emphasizes proper form to help her athletes be most efficient and effective with their gait strategies. The runners will get used to hearing her preach the idea of “quality over quantity”.
