Katie Hurst


Katie Hurst is an editor, freelance writer, and amateur runner living in Charleston. Growing up in Oklahoma, she was never the sporty type. Instead, she was a bookworm with knobby knees and the closest she came to breaking a sweat was in ballet class. But somehow since college, this uncoordinated journalist caught the running bug and has been working on lapping everyone since. Though she’s no pro, she enjoys letting her competitive side out at local races and is currently training for her first half marathon. After a long run around the Lowcountry, she likes to refuel at her favorite Charleston restaurants or relax on the beach with her husband and a good book. Stay tuned to her blog for her random running insights and other fitness adventures.
