Kate Schwartz

Runner, cat mom, breakfast eater

Kate ran her first race when she was in fourth grade. Now an adult, she’s run-commuting to her job as a small-business lender. But there was plenty of running in between: Kate was the South Carolina high school state champion in the 1600m and 3200m and ran collegiately at Mars Hill University before settling into adult life.

Now, she lives with her husband in Asheville, North Carolina, where she drinks coffee and runs for the Asheville Running Collective.
