Katie Pajerowski is a physical therapist based in central Maryland, where she owns and operates her practice, Ascend Physical Therapy & Wellness. Katie first began running consistently while in grad school, and since then has completed races ranging from 10-mile to 50k distances, with favorite runs always being those on mountain trails. A desire to better serve runners and to help ‘bridge the gap’ from rehab to performance led her to get her coaching certification through RRCA. She is passionate about working with runners, hikers, rock climbers, dancers, and anyone who wants to live a more active life. When not working, she can most often be found outdoors somewhere with her husband and their dog.
