Katie O’Neil, 31, Oahu
I was raised in Boise, Idaho, where I ran in high school (fun fact: high school teammate was Olympian Nick Symmonds!).
I ran at Stanford for two years, before switching to rowing due to injury. I was on the 2009 NCAA championship rowing team. I kept rowing in Boston, and have been getting back to running over the past 3 years.
I am currently a high school chemistry teacher at Mid-Pacific, where I also coach cross country, paddling, and track. I have visited every Hawaiian island except Kahoolawe (even Niihau!). Other interest include swimming, painting, and kickball.
