Now is the time to put one foot in front of the other and get your freedom back by creating a healthier life by running


Chronic illnesses are here to put the fear and frustrations of uncertainty into our lives, but why should we let it? All of us were born destined to fight, so let’s fight a little harder and overcome what we thought was impossible due to living with a disease.


  • Being able to spend countless minutes with friends and family and not just during visiting hours at the hospital. 

  • The feeling of the wind on your face as you run anywhere and everywhere without a second thought

  • Having control over your life, being able to plan for the future, and not constantly worrying about what tomorrow will bring.

When you decide to run or exercise, you see a future of possibilities, a healthier body, pain-free, no wires and tubes, and better days with deeper breaths, but up until now running is hard and frustrating, you don’t know how to transition to the next level or even where to begin. 

Although, you don’t have to feel this way!

"Running has never been my strong suit.  As a hockey player, I am used to quick sprints and exercises that use different muscles than running. Not only was I a relatively inexperienced runner, but I also have a blood disorder called Thalassemia that causes muscle weakness. Katie was able to design a running program that worked with my schedule and allowed me to reach the personal goals I had set."

Your doctors and the people who love you most just want to see you succeed, so they say go exercise but where do you begin?
You may feel motivated to go out for a run but realize it's hard, you begin to compare yourself to a time when exercising was easy or you compare yourself to others.  

At the moment, it probably feels easier to stop or wait until you feel healthier. Although, time is not on your side.

What if you need to get healthier now, to get ahead before your illness takes full control of your decisions?

You may have decided to go to the internet to find your answers. This is where you will find a premade running plan, you hope this will give you the motivation and direction to help with your running but…

  • You quickly realize they are too difficult to follow 

  • They don’t align with your goals

  • The running plans aren’t tailored to any specific person

  • Nor do they understand what it’s like living with YOUR chronic illness.

"After a hospital stay with an exacerbation, hitting rock bottom with my health I was determined to get back into running for my health. That’s when I found Kate! I highly recommend going to Kate if you’re a runner with a chronic health condition, she will guide you and always have your back!"

Katie, Non-CF Bronchiectasis and primary ciliary dyskinesia

Believe me, as someone who has been a runner for 10 plus years and living with Cystic Fibrosis, I have scoured the internet trying to find someone or something that understood what I was going through. Someone who would give me some direction to take when I was blinded and discouraged in my running and health. 
  • Without having to follow cookie-cutter running plans

  • Without having to feel frustrated when running isn’t going the way you expected

  • Without having to figure out where to restart when you get sick

  • Without a coach not knowing what you are going through while living with chronic pain


"The biggest thing I felt was that no one really understood what I was going through and Katie was the only person who truly understood how I felt. Beyond her valuable opinion and experience, she treated me with compassion that other coaches did not have."
