Every year we have a newbie and this year, Kati is it and we couldn’t be happier to have her join us. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Kati for a long time. She’s been married to one of my best friends, Andrew, another one of our runners – more on him later, for nearly as long as Jenn and I have been married. She’s truly one of the nicest people I know.
On top of it though, she’s a former collegiate track athlete. Yes, college might a few days ago for us on Runners Doing Good, however, if it’s been a part of you in the past, there’s always a part of you that’s there. This is something she’s wanted to do for awhile to get back into running a bit and I know she’s going to do well for us and enjoy the experience.
Interestingly enough, because everyone runs the same distances in a Ragnar Trail Race, Kati will jump up the leaderboard pretty quickly. She is the 33rd person to lace ’em up for Runnin’ Not Walken / Runners Doing Good but with 16.1 miles under her belt once Trail Michigan is over, she’ll be our 23rd most mileage.
