“You don’t want to be a cheerleader. Cheerleaders cheer for other people. You want other people to cheer for you. The game is on the field, life is to participate — not to spectate.”
This message resonated with Kathrine and she quickly developed a passion for running. While attending Syracuse University she practiced with the men’s cross country team, where she met coach Arnie Briggs, who completed the Boston Marathon himself.
