To say Kate Leis knows a little something about goal setting is a massive understatement. With two Ironman distance triathlons, 11 marathons, and multiple ultra (beyond 26.2 miles) distance trail races— including the Superior 100 mile Ultra Trail Race—under her belt, you better believe this Delano resident and personal trainer has something to share with all of us about the power of dedicaiton. The 2016 Twin Cities Marathon will mark the completion of Kate's newest fitness endevour: to run 40 races of a marathon distance or beyond by age 40. To meet this goal, she'll run nine races this year (including another 100 miler). Her 2016 events alone add up to the equivalent of over 350 miles.
Whether you are a new runner or someone looking to take their training to the next level, we asked Kate to share with us on inspiration, training, motivation, and running advice. We hope you're as inspired as we are.
