Katie Mackey
Track & Field

Hi, my name is Katie Mackey.
I was born in Fort Collins, CO.
My sport is Track and Field, and
I have been competing in it since I was 6 year old.

My favorite workout is 10×400 meter repeats at 1500m race pace with 1 minute rest.
I am inspired by my dad, and
my faith keeps me motivated.

My favorite food is Fresh Northwest Salmon.
I relax by playing the piano or hiking outdoors,
and love listening to anything with a good beat.

My pre-competition ritual is drinking coffee.

What’s the secret to my success? Believe in yourself, be patient and work hard. But most importantly, have fun!

What Katie says about InHealth

I have been running competitively for 14 years, including 4 years as a college Division 1 athlete and 4 years as a professional for the Brooks Beasts, and along the way have had the opportunity to get treatment from a variety of specialists. The treatment I have received from InHealth is among the best, if not the best, I have received. Their knowledge, skill and insight have helped me both recover from injury and avoid serious injuries due to weakness and compensation patterns. Getting regular treatments has allowed me to recover faster, train harder, and perform at the highest level I ever have this last year. There is no way I could do what I do without their support!
