SPECIALTIES

As a Massage Therapist and Personal Trainer, I see a lot of injured athletes and runners who have deficiencies in their training and strides, and my knowledge of both training and recovery techniques provides me with a unique perspective on developing a long-term plan for each person. I love working with runners to help them find a style of running that works best for their bodies and developing a strength training and stretching and recovery program that will help them keep running!

My background with running starts with track and extends into the road. As a steeplechase athlete turned avid road and trail runner, I understand the subtle nuances these races require. I love working with all athletes, whether they are setting out to run their first 5K, or they are trying to set personal records in half and full marathons.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe a training plan needs to accurately fit an athlete’s unique lifestyle. I would rather see you have a healthy relationship with the task you’ve set out to do, rather than building up stress just to get a workout in each day. My process is to take your background in running and help build a plan to ramp you up to a fitness level where you can not only achieve your goals but also build consistency incorporating these workouts into your daily life. Training should be rewarding and fun!

COACHING EXPERIENCE

I have coached a number of small groups over the years ranging from mile to marathon.

ABOUT ME

I competed at Western Washington University where I ran the steeplechase, 5k and 1500. I received 7 All American honors and more importantly made amazing friends and developed many life skills. I got a BS in Kinesiology and practiced as a Personal Trainer for a number of years before going back to school to become a Licensed Massage Therapist. In 2016 I trained for the Olympic Trails for the steeplechase and fell short, but learned a lot! I have since taken to trail to road running since as well as incorporating skiing and mountain biking into training and taking more time to play!

BIG INFLUENCES

My coach in college, David Burnett, has been the biggest influence on my running. He shared with me the importance of training your body for a specific task, as well as fitting training and competing into your lifestyle. He was and remains to be one of my biggest supporters and I can only hope to return the favor to athletes and friends going forward.

RACING HISTORY

In college I competed at a Division II school where I learned how to be a successful student AND athlete. The year that fallowed, I dedicated my time to training for the Olympic Trails in the steeplechase. After that serious endeavor I took some time off of running to rediscover a joy for running. I ended up training for some 50k’s and finding a whole new appreciation for running which I had lost for a number of years. I am currently training for 5k- half marathon distances!

    Katelyn has reinvigorated my passion for running! She holds you accountable in the most positive way and is in constant contact to ensure you are feeling successful, even on not so successful days, she is a beacon of encouragement. Her ability to create a personalized schedule that fits your needs is incredible, I never thought I would be able to run like I do now. She keeps the workouts interesting and includes strength training and yoga within my weekly routine. She is an awesome coach and I am so grateful for her! I thought I would only want to have her coaching services for a couple months… but I don’t plan on stopping them anytime soon.

    Entering my third month of coaching with Katelyn and I couldn’t be happier with her approach and customized plan for my busy lifestyle! Katelyn developed a realistic plan for me, including a variety of workouts from long runs to track and hill workouts. Most importantly, she helped build it around my schedule, and the results have already exceeded my initial goals! As a semi-regular runner beforehand, I lacked the discipline to measure myself consistently and be accountable with someone. Working with Katelyn I’ve found a renewed passion for running and being intentional about it! She created a varied and perfect plan to accommodate all the other outdoor activities I enjoy, while still setting me on a path towards achieving my racing goals.
