32. Kat Stefankiewicz: Don’t Believe in Regrets

Kat’s running journey started when she went through a challenging time ten years ago. At a time when Kat found herself competing for auditions as an on-air personality, running was her escape. Kat would eventually start her career with Maple Leafs Sports & Entertainment (MLSE), joining the Toronto Raptors Dance Pak. After five seasons, Kat became the in-game and digital host of the Toronto Raptors.

Opportunities, some of them, are once in a lifetime. I don’t believe in regret. I believe in taking yourself out of your body and then, watching from the outside, what should I do? That’s often how I tackle situations

The experience gave Kat a unique opportunity to run in different cities and we asked her which cities were her favorite to run through! Kat also shares her experience as an Adidas Women Ambassador with Adidas Canada and her passion for working with various charities.

We recorded this episode on International Women’s Day and, as a bonus, Kat opens up about her feelings about the day and what it means to her.
