Tonia:

“Coach Katie has an amazing ability to meet you where you are and help you to, step-by-step, work toward your goals. The training plans Coach Katie creates for me are never easy, but they are achievable. Even when a workout looks tough and I'm not sure that I can do it, it helps a lot knowing that Katie believes that I can—usually, she's right. She has helped me to come back from a major survey and is helping me to keep my head screwed on straight and working toward new goals despite the pandemic. With Katie's help, I can't wait to see what I can accomplish in the months and years ahead."

Jeff:

“I have really enjoyed working with Coach Katie this past year. She is very attentive and responsive.
I have made great progress with my goals at various distances as well as mental toughness. The specific program she assembled for me (and that we are still using) is challenging, but achievable and continues to challenge me. She spent the time to get to know what type of training I respond best to as opposed to forcing me into a "one size fits all" approach. I consider myself a very coachable athlete so when we try new things out, I trust her recommendations. I look forward to continuing to work with her and achieving new goals."

Mike:

“Katie has helped me to PRs at multiple distances, from the 5k to the marathon. Thanks to her training I’ve not only gotten faster but I feel better during and post race than ever before. Her training plans are tailored to match my race goals, and the workouts are the perfect mix of being challenging and achievable. She knows exactly how hard to push and when to dial it back. Katie’s always quick to send feedback and answer questions. Her never ending positivity is amazing and her support is a big help getting through everything from those tough training runs to race day. I’m so happy I found Katie as a coach and friend, and can’t wait to tackle the next challenge with her!"

Emily:

“I sat down with Robyn, the owner of Edge Athlete Lounge, with the single goal of a sub 4 marathon. When she matched me with Coach Katie, it was a no brainer.  This was the gal who during a previous Chicago Marathon training cycle casually taught me the mental key to progressive racing - 'the goal has to be greater than the pain.' It was a tough training season juggling a new puppy and a busy work schedule but I still managed to log the miles, some days faster and stronger than others. Thankfully, I always had Coach Katie chirping positivity in my ear and BELIEVING in me.  Fast forward to race day when I ran THE best race of my life, feeling mentally and physically strong *nearly* every step of the way."
