"My greatest inspiration was my older brother. He is two years older than me, and I fought everyday to do everything he was doing. That chase taught me to get up when I failed and that I often had to work harder to keep up with the older kids." -Kate Rawlings, April 2011
That desire to fight has never been more important for Kate than it has been over the course of the past year. After making a comeback from a broken L5 vertebra, Kate is currently making a SECOND comeback after an achilles rupture. This is a woman that will not do anything other that fight for what she wants. Go Kate! Here's where she is today...
Since being the ‘Fashlete of the Month’ in April of 2011 I made a full recovery from a broken L5 vertebra making my return to the competition circuit at The Beast of The East where I took 7th place overall. I also took a 2nd place finish at the Firebreathers Throwdown before rupturing my Achilles heal on December 2nd. I had surgery on Tuesday, December 6th and am already working on my next comeback.

Outside of the gym I’ve been spending countless hours training Coca’s gym mascot a no 7month old Cane Corso. She recently passed became a Canine Good Citizen and will take her Therapy Dog International test when she’s a year. We also joined a protection training group to begin training to compete in protection work.Vote for Kate
