RunDerbyKat- 1. Run- I like to run, although I wouldn’t tell people I’m a runner. 2. Derby- I’m originally from Kentucky and LOVE the Derby. It’s my favorite day of the year! Also, my cat’s name is Derby. Too much? 3. Kat- My name is Kathleen, but I started going by Kat in college because it was easier for people to remember….and it stuck.
I completed my first marathon in November on a sprained ankle (not ideal!), and after overcoming tendonitis and discovering custom orthodics for my flat feet, I’m getting back into running shape. I’ve also branched out in my fitness goals, and have been incorporating activities other than running into my daily schedule.
I’m a teacher (cannot believe this will be my 7th year!) and this school year I’m teaching third grade with one of my most fun friends! Everyday is an adventure, that’s for sure! I also live in Virginia, my second favorite state (after Kentucky of course), and have been here for 3.5 years. If there’s anything else I’m missing, just ask!
