2004 Olympian Kate O’Neill Tenforde joined the runcoach staff in April, 2010. Having grown up outside of Boston, her earliest running memory is traveling downtown every spring to watch the end of the Boston Marathon.

Kate competed for Yale University, where she was a seven-time All-American, ten-time Ivy League Champion, and was named NCAA Woman of the Year for Connecticut in 2003. During Kate’s senior year she was a three-time runner-up at the NCAA championships. She was also awarded Academic All-American honors three times and was a two-time Academic All-Ivy.

In the lead up to the 2004 Olympics, she dropped over a minute from her previous best in the 10,000 meters, with a time of 31:34 which eclipsed the Olympic A qualifying standard. She later cinched her spot on the Olympic roster by finishing third at the 2004 Olympic Trials and finished the year ranked third for American women at the distance.

In 2007, Kate made her marathon debut at the LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon and finished 3rd. In 2010 she returned to competition after a long layoff due to injury and finished 7th at the Bay to Breakers and 14th at the Peachtree Road Race.
