Kathryn
Team PAWS for the Chicago Marathon

Run for their lives

Kathryn frequents The Lawrence House lobby to study and to hang out with her significant other who lives in the building. Kathryn is a member of Team PAWS for the Chicago Marathon, aiming to raise $1,500 for the No Kill shelter in Chicago. This will be Kathryn's 5th Chicago Marathon, and the PAWS cause is close to her heart as that's where she rescued her two kittens, Nutmeg and Mocha. If you're considering helping Kathryn and Team PAWS, visit the link below, or learn more about her fundraiser at Ironside Bar on Friday, March 30th at 6 PM.

Tell us more about being a part of Team PAWS for the Chicago Marathon!

As a member of Team PAWS for the Chicago Marathon, I have the opportunity to raise $1500 for PAWS in order to gain entry to the race. These funds can help save the lives of three homeless pets by providing them vital necessities such as medical care, food, and shelter. The 2018 Chicago Marathon will be my 9th marathon, and for this marathon training, I really wanted to make a difference for a great cause like PAWS.
I adopted my two kittens Mocha and Nutmeg, from PAWS in November. They are sisters and are both 7-months old. They enjoy causing mischief together, as well as taking long naps together. Their favorite toys include mice, lasers, and anything with a feather.

What do you do for a living?

I work at RSM, a middle-market accounting firm, as a consulting associate within the commercial real estate department.

What drives you?

I am very goal driven. I like to set a goal, attain it, and then work to better myself the next time.

What's your ideal road trip?

My ideal road trip is the Grand Circle road trip which includes seeing National Parks in Utah, Arizona, and Nevada. During this trip, you would see parks such as Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks, Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, and the Grand Canyon National Park.

On Friday nights you can find me...

Drinking a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon while watching Grey's Anatomy or How to Get Away with Murder.

Can't live without...

Cheese, chocolate, and coffee.
For marathon training you generally increase your long run mileage every week until you peak to about 20-22 miles about 3 weeks before race day. A tip I have for people training for their first marathon is to not start with too much mileage if you are not used to it.
