Katie McLeod

Hello! My name is Katie McLeod. I have been married to my husband Mike for 8 years now, and we have one little man named Castle. I grew up in a small town in Northern Michigan where I was very active in track & field and performing arts. I met my husband at college in Michigan then moved to Fort Worth (for my husband’s work) and finished my degree in Criminal Justice at the University of North Texas. I worked as a Petroleum Landman for 6 years before having our son, then have been a stay at home mom since. I have always been athletic, and was a sprinter all through school, but never was much of a distance runner. Over the years I’ve been adding more and more mileage to my runs and since my husband starting working at home last year I’ve really enjoyed the ‘me time’ away from the house;)

I joined the FIT4MOM Run Club last December to train for the Cowtown Half Marathon and really loved having a group of woman to run and connect with. I missed that ‘mom connection’ so much after the race that I just had to join FIT4MOM for Stroller Strides & Stroller Barre classes. I can’t believe I waited as long as I did, not having a lot of other mom friends in the area. FIT4MOM has really done so much for me to feel like I’m not in this alone! I’m so excited to be a part of the FIT4MOM team and to hopefully help other moms realize their running potential!
