About the Site
1. A female runner.
2. A woman known for her mental strength, legs of steel, and an unnatural attachment to her watch.
Run with Kate was originally a plain old blog. In fact, you can still check out the original run with Kate blog. I couldn’t quite give it up. The same articles are all still here, on the current site. The more I wrote about my life and training, the more I got to know the running community, and the more I saw a need to connect on a level beyond the stories.
Today, Run with Kate is a hell of a lot more than a blog. The site is carefully arranged to give you access to all the tools you need to connect with the running community.
For recipes and nutrition information, head to the food section. If you have a burning question, the forums are your go-to place. If you’re looking for inspiration, our Fit Nuts are featured readers, and they all have a story to tell. For race recaps, you want to head to the racing section, which also has a number of forums, where upcoming races are the talking point (yep, my other half can only handle so much race talk too!). Finally, you can’t miss out on the reviews. For the latest products, gear and sponsors, check out the review section and find some gems.
This is me:
I run – sometimes. On the road, on the grass, in races, for fun, with others, with no-one, and when I feel like it. I like long distance – give me anything between 7km and 20km and I’m happy. I once tried a marathon. It was pretty great. I might do it again, but right now, I have a whole lot of other stuff I have to run to.
For me, running means more than just the feet on pavement thing. And I think you’ll find that many runners do the same. There’s something about us that screams goals, goals and more goals. Like a football player on crack.
I run through life at full speed. Give me a project and I will sink my teeth into it like no-one’s business. Since beginning my long distance running love in 2011, I’ve not only run a marathon, I’ve written a thesis (everyone loves talking about the international trade implications of tuna fishing), graduated from law school, started a business, moved cities, started a blog, grown the business, and, most recently, decided to get married to my much less athletic other half, Mr The Rake.
But mostly, this blog is about the run. Go forth and read the ridiculousness of life.
