Katie visits local schools, teams, and other groups across America to speak on the importance of living a bold and passion-driven life.

Pave Your Lane is a campaign designed to empower people to find their passion, create a plan to embrace it, and "run" towards it fully.
In 2009, Pave Your Lane’s Founder, Katie Visco, ran solo across America, from Boston to San Diego to spread this campaign. Visco became the 2nd youngest and 13th woman overall to run the 3,132 miles coast to coast.
As of October 2011, Katie began her 50 States Series by running across Vermont and Massachusetts.

Her ultimate dream is to run across every continent. Stay tuned!
