About Katie (from her About page): “I am 31 years old, living in Michigan with my husband Jerry, and our two boys (Noah, 9, and Eli, 7).

I started Runs for Cookies after losing 125 pounds through diet and exercise.

I became a runner in order to continue to eat cookies (and all sweet things!), and now I blog about weight maintenance, running, my ever-constant battle with binge eating, and some totally unrelated things going on in my life.”
