Katie Palavecino is one of the most driven and hard working athletes you will meet. Her dedication to her training plan has allowed her to have breakthrough after breakthrough this year while successfully balancing a full-time job, raising two young children, and her marriage. One of her first goals when she started training with Endorphin Fitness was to qualify for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships. Katie had the race of her life this past weekend at the Atlantic City Ironman 70.3 placing 3rd in her age group and 7th overall female while also breaking 5 hours which was a big goal of hers as well. She met her goal by qualifying for the 2017 Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Chattanooga, TN! Aside from her athletic achievement she has added so much to our community and is one of those type of people that you meet and easily become instant friends with. As an athlete that lives outside of town she has participated in team races and attended team training camps to integrate herself into the Endorphin Fitness community and in the process add so much to the group with her kind attitude and hard work ethic. Katie, we could not be more proud of you and are so excited to be a part of what the future holds for you. Keep up your incredible work and thank you for letting us be a part of your journey!
