Meet the staff: Kathy

KathyA runner for over 11 years now, Kathy Peters of Big River West County, calls running and racing a healthy addiction. She had played team sports in high school and college and has always been active. A long-time loyal customer at Big River, Kathy said the store has provided her with “the best products and resources to expand my running knowledge in the St. Louis running community. It’s just the best!”

Kathy had attended various Big River community events from Summer Speedwork to Training Team before she came on board as a staff member. She learned her amazing customer service from her former career as a hotel executive and has an educational background in Business and Psychology.

Kathy lives in Wildwood with her family consisting of her husband and two kids (one in high school and one away at college) plus three dogs and two cats. Her favorite distance to race is the 10k but has completed several marathons and is currently training for The Chicago Marathon.
