Katie Zaferes on Growth, Communication and Curiosity

Katie Zaferes grew up in Hampstead, MD playing soccer, lacrosse and swimming. She picked up running her sophomore year in high school and went on to run at Syracuse University where she was recruited by the USA Triathlon Collegiate Recruitment Program. Katie started her triathlon career in 2013 and has been on the WTS podium 13 times, winning once. She finished 3rd in the overall WTS Series in 2017 and competed in the 2016 Rio Olympics. While Katie and her husband Tommy are official California residents, they spend most of the year traveling the world to train and race.

Katie’s wifi connection was a bit sketchy throughout our conversation so please bear with the audio quality on this one. Katie shares her advice on traveling across the world for races and gives us a sneak peek into her favorite foods. We talk about tough training days, how Tommy supports her, coming back from crashes, love languages, the nomadic lifestyle and more. Enjoy the inspiration!
