About Me

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.

Hence- RunDerbyKat!

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!

    This is my first time reading your blog but so glad I stumbled upon it- you’re a teacher and live in VA?! Me too 😀 It’s my first year teaching and I’m in a 7th grade autism classroom… Hope you’re having a great school year! If only we got this blanket of icy snow yesterday and had a snow day!

    • I’m glad you stumbled upon it too! I love finding new blogs to read…especially of people who are close to Richmond! Hope your first year of teaching is going well! Where is all the snow?? I’m counting on at least one free day this year! Plus, I think the kids need a break 🙂
