Katie has the endurance of a matriarch monarch butterfly (which migrates over the 3,000 miles annually). Blessed with an enormous heart and lungs that are lined with gold, Katie has sipped from the sacred chalice of victory many times in her short life. Katie dominated her age division at Ironman Wisconsin and earned a qualifying spot for the 2010 Kona Ironman World Championship. Thunderbird launched its line of fine energy solutions prematurely to help Katie train and compete in her big race. When not flexing sculpted and oiled quads, she shares an intense bond with her cat, Meow Pataw. This relationship transcends both time and space and remains very esoteric. Katie earned a Bachelor's in Psychology as well as a Master's in Women and Gender Studies. She is both smart and cute and loves shopping at Bettysport.
Which bar that gives you the most energy?
I love to eat the Cherry Walnut Crunch bar in its entirety. I worked closely with Jaguar on product testing this particular flavor. At the time I was recovering from a chronic knee injury that defied any medical diagnosis and I wanted to have a bar that was gluten-free and loaded with anti-inflammatories to assuage my sad limb. This salty yet sweet bar has provided me with many resurrections during long days of training. We even added Hawaiian Black Lava Salt to prepare me for swimming in the Kona Bay for my upcoming Ironman.
The catamount is a mystical creature that rarely graces the presence of humans. When I was standing within 20 feet of this amazing cat on my first trip to the Fort Davis Mountain Range I knew that we had a cosmic bond. The catamount goes by many names including mountain lion, puma, panther, and cougar. She is a territorial creature and protects her family. The catamount is stealth like the wind and quick on her feet. She is not afraid of treacherous environments and thrives in seemingly uninhabitable terrain. Catamount is strong, independent, and keen.
Most stunning body part:
Sport of choice:
Cycling, swimming, ironman and half ironman triathlons. I also love the running with the Gilbert's Gazelles!
Favorite past time:
Making Meow Pataw pop as I slowly and methodically connect my pony tail to her kitty tail (as depicted in the movie AVATAR) and share our bond that we have sealed.
