I am a runner, friend, crazy lady, lover of fun, complex about what I eat, girlfriend, Australian, blogger and social media lover. I finished a law degree last year, and plan not to use it. Instead, I’ve opened a tutoring centre and am having the time of my life running my own business.
Did I mention I run?
I ran my first marathon last year, and recapped it in full gory detail.
What’s the Deal with Run with Kate?
I post each night (Australian time – in the morning US time). You can find my popular and favourite posts here.
When I started getting ready for the marathon, I needed a place to share my thoughts and adventures. I was linking into the running community, and loved reading about other runners. In fact, some of my favourite bloggers are listed on my ‘Happy Bloggers’ Page, where I pick some of my favourites to share with you.
The blog has grown to incorporate a lifestyle with running at its centre. I don’t run professionally. I’m not even particularly fast. Like a lot of you, I started jogging, got a little more serious about my running, and now can’t imagine a life without some kind of training.
This site is for…
Well, those of you who want to be here. If you love running (or reading about running
), enjoy seeing the humour in stupid things, and like people who are honest through the good and bad, then this is a site for you.
Run with Kate is not…
A mummy-blog, spam service, fiction or personal training service.
It is also not a place where it is ever ok to make anyone else feel bad. I started this blog to feel good, even when the shit hits the fan. Most days, I have a daily ‘moment’, and I use Mental Mondays as chance to throw out a negative thought. (That doesn’t mean no constructive criticism though – feedback away!).
I’m not explaining in excruciating detail what I ate for breakfast – but if I have a mind-blowing meal or a recipe that rocks my socks, it will likely make it onto the blog.
From time to time I host give-aways and reviews, and I always, always tell you when I’ve been paid or given a product for free. The majority of content on the site is by me, and that’s how I like it.
Awesome – now you want to stick around, right?
I consider all of my readers friends, and a comment will endear me to you for life. Hopefully you got that in the non-creepy stalkerish tone in which it was meant.

Say hi -
I’m looking forward to meeting you! Do comment, and feel free to email me any time at firstname.lastname@example.org, or through the contact page (I am a compulsive email checker – it doesn’t take me long to get back to you!).
