Katie Morse started her athletic career when she was very young. Always active in many sports growing up, Katie finally decided to focus on soccer in high school. She was recruited to play soccer at DePauw University, and played there for four years. As senior year of college was coming to an end, Katie was looking for something else to be competitive in. She decided to run her first marathon her second semester senior year. She immediately fell in love with running long distance and the grueling training.
She has now completed four marathons. She has competed in the St. Louis Marathon twice, the Chicago Marathon, and the Boston Marathon. She finished the Chicago Marathon in 3:30:44, and ran the Boston Marathon in April 2010. After that, she challenged herself to compete in her first Half Ironman in July 2010 at Racine 70.3, and has now completed 6 other half iron distance races: Branson 70.3, Rev3 Knoxville, Vineman 70.3, Oceanside 70.3, Racine 70.3 (again) and SuperFrog. Katie, completed her first full Iron distance race at Ironman Wisconsin on September 11, 2011, and is looking forward to completing two more Ironmans in 2013 (Ironman Wisconsin and Ironman Arizona). Katie is ambitious, determined, passionate, and loves to have fun, and these are the characteristics that drive her in triathlon.
