One of the things I am most passionate about is encouraging and building up the next generation of female athletes. I want to pay forward what I have learned from those who have generously shared their time and knowledge with me! This includes a support network of mentors, sports psychologists, coaches and therapists. In 2016, I started a camp for high school girls called "Kickin with Katie".
As an athlete, you constantly work to reframe challenges- whether they be mental, physical or even spiritual. Gaining a new perspective, or changing the way you look at something is a skill that is developed over time! The obstacles I’ve encountered forced me to grow, be creative and push the limits of what I thought I was capable of doing. We are in an unprecedented time in history- and it’s a perfect time to practice this! Evaluating and learning new ways to deal with what’s presented isn't just a skill needed in sport, it's a valuable life skill.
Join me, other professional runners and my coach in beautiful North Park, Colorado at my family's homestead ranch where my own high school cross country camps were held! We will go on some beautiful runs, hear different presentations and discuss important topics such as: mindfulness & self-compassion, nutrition & body image, self-therapy & injury prevention and self talk. Come make new running friends, learn new skills and eat s'mores over a bonfire with us!
**2021's 3 day/2 night camp will be held Friday July 23rd through Sunday July 25th**
