Katie O'Connor

run coach



Ever since I started running [cross country in high school], I fell in love with the sport. I loved the confidence and strength that running gave me, as well as the community of friendship and support. When I signed up for my first marathon, I knew it would be challenging, would take sacrifice, and dedication. Crossing the finish line was the best feeling in the world, and I proved to myself that I was stronger than I thought I was, and could do more than I believed I could. The experience was truly life changing. From the marathon to now ultramarathons, I actually get excited to be the sore, hobbling runner you see the day after the race. I completed my first 100 miler in 2020 and it left me hungry for more! I am currently training for my first 200 miler (ha ha never say never!).


I am a Certified Run Coach, have been running competitively since 2003, and have been in the fitness industry for over 15 years. I am passionate about helping my athletes achieve their goals. From beginners to seasoned veterans looking for a new PR or to tackle a new distance, I am here to help you be the strongest [mentally & physically] runner you can be [and have fun doing it]!










Coach Katie was there for everything and gave me customized workouts, pep talks, advice, support, knowledge of the course, recommendations for gear/hydration/nutrition, what to do after I sustained an injury, accountability, the list goes on. Katie is my coach, mentor, inspiration, and friend. Her unwavering commitment and belief in me gave me all the tools I needed to achieve the dream of finishing my 1st 50 mile race. I'm forever grateful and look forward to continuing to work with her to achieve my next crazy goal!
