About Kat McTaggart
My name is Kat McTaggart and I was born and raised in Montreal. I fell in love with Halifax and the East Coast 11 years ago and have been here ever since. I do however miss a good ol’ fashioned Montreal poutine…but I’ll mention that again after this fitness program!
I currently work in the insurance industry and love my job however; my real passion is dodging balls on the court and travelling throughout the province and Canada to attend various dodgeball tournaments and events with my fellow team mates and friends. I've always been an active person and love hiking, camping and any kind of adventure that can be found with my 9 year-old daughter, Ferity, and my boyfriend, Dan.
Unless someone is chasing me (that’s the Montreal in me!), I've never really had to run – or had the desire to. My boyfriend Dan is a running machine and has inspired me and this program was the perfect opportunity for me to get my butt out there! Dan has been quite persistent in trying to get me to run but I often find myself yelling at him for no apparent reason. You’re welcome Dan :-)
I am ecstatic to have the chance to challenge myself and complete my very first Bluenose Marathon with the help of TEAM MYLES and our amazing coach!
