Katie Willis is an avid runner and hiker who enjoys being outdoors and staying physically active. She thinks racing and being in the mountains are the best ways to spend a weekend. She moved to Seattle in 2014 and absolutely loves the city. By day, she runs a pet care small business. She runs with the PNW Ladies Running Group, Seattle Green Lake Running Group, Rainier Runners, and Seattle Anti-Freeze Runners. She ran her first half marathon in October 2018 and is currently training for the San Juan Island Half Marathon. She has some big goals for 2019 and is excited to achieve them with the Run 2 Be Fit community!
Favorite Race: Will run for Beer 5k, wine or run 5k, or coffee 5k (basically any race that gives you a beverage afterwards)
Hobbies: running, hiking, camping, SUP yoga
Goals: I would like to encourage people to get out of their comfort zone and try something new. Either sign up for a new race or just meet up to walk around your neighborhood. Maybe it’s coming to workout out in the park or hiking up a mountain. Anything that gets you out and gets you moving! #Run2BeFit
Hi, I'm Kat! I am an Everett native, and I live with my husband and daughter in the Silver Firs area of town. I ran track in school, but I really got into long distance running in the last few years (after my daughter was born). It is my meditation in motion. I love the support and encouragement I have found in the running community and am excited to be able to pass some of that along in my Run2BeFit ambassador position! Come #runwithus!
