Everyone is welcome.
I'm Coach Katie
For me, there's no finer run than a muddy run!
I've been running since 2007 and, while some of my technique has improved since then, I'm by no means a perfect runner (see the picture for some pretty shoddy foot placement for starters!).
I run because I want to be fit, not to win things, and I rarely run to get faster. While medals and personal bests (PBs) are important to many, for me it's about finding some head-space and enjoying the outdoors. I also love seeing my runners achieve their goals, whether it's a first attempt at a new distance, making it to the top of one of Tilehurst's 'famous' hills for the first time or smashing their PB - they always make me smile!
I started coaching with Reading Roadrunners in 2015 and I am hugely proud of having created an inclusive and friendly running group at Tilehurst Runs Together.
Athletes at TRT sessions are encouraged to be their best today, not to compare themselves with others and to remember that the variables in all of our lives make each run different from the last.
Mostly though, I want to help people to feel healthy, both physically and mentally.
If you've any questions about your running journey, pop me a message and I will get back to you as quickly as I can. I will never do any 'selling' and, if I know I'm not the coach you need right now, I'll point you to someone who is.
