Katie Kramer-Ochoa


To Katie Kramer-Ochoa, running is more than a hobby, so working at Red Coyote is a perfect fit. Katie started running when she was fifteen years old and she was hooked. She started as a sprinter, but soon discovered her passion was longer distances. Katie has run just over fifty marathons, and multiple ultra races. She not only runs long, but she runs fast! In college, she earned a trip to the NCAA Div III Cross Country Championships. She has seven marathon victories and one Ultra victory under her belt. Katie runs many local 5Ks, 10Ks, and half marathons, but the full marathon distance is her favorite and her best.

Katie is also a triathlete and a very accomplished singer. You can hear her singing the National Anthem at many of the local races, and once in awhile - she is known to do some karaoke.

Katie is featured in the November/December 2011 issue of Oklahoma Sports & Fitness Magazine.

Life Change: Less Stress, More Rest Equals Better Running

It was not the best spring for me as far as running goes. I ran a few marathons and they were not terrible, but they were nowhere near as fast as they should have been. I was dealing with some hip issues, but I did not think the issues were bad enough to be slowing Continue Reading «Life Change: Less Stress, More Rest Equals Better Running»
