Kate Malo

Track Shack Ambassador

Kate is the retail manager for Raw Threads Athletics and lives and runs in sunny Orlando. Kate was not a runner when she was younger, but grew up in Texas being active and playing many sports like softball, basketball, and volleyball. She graduated from high school in 2002 and went to Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas where she played volleyball as an outside hitter and earned a degree in health and fitness management. After graduating from college and moving to Orlando, she felt the need to get back into a competitive sport. She began running and started by signing up for a few 5ks, and in 2013 she completed her first half marathon, the Walt Disney World Half Marathon. After running her first 13.1 miles she was hooked and has now run 38 half marathons from Orlando to California and is training for her first marathon! She has been a Track Shack Fanatic for the past six years and cannot wait to be a SuperFan this season. You can follow along with her running adventures at @katemalo on Instagram as well as see more fun things she loves doing around Orlando, like going to theme parks, local breweries, and trying all kinds of food and snacks!
