Welcome to Where Your Feet Take You!!
I am Kayla Bowker certified USAT Level 1 Triathlon Coach and founder of WhereYourFeetTakeYou. I am married to the most amazing man a girl could ask for. It is through his belief in myself that I now writing to you, as he continually pushes me to be the best person I can be. I live a great life in the Pacific Northwest where I work, learn, do a lot of running and weightlifting all intermixed with a little bit of road biking, swimming, golfing, and keeping an eye on an extraordinarily cute doodle puppy.
My Passion for Running and Fitness
Running has always been there for me; it is something I started doing at a young age and while I have had my ups and downs with it running has always been my release. It seems as though no matter what is going on in my life I can lace up my runners step out on the pavement and lose myself in the flow of air rushing through my lungs, the pounding of feet on the pavement, and rush of being totally separated from everything. I am very blessed to have not only a body but a mind-set that allows me to continually push the envelope in order to see how much more I can take. Through this mind-set, and with the help of my family and friends, I have gained a strong belief in myself that I really can be great.
Over the years my passion has moved from strictly running to being a triathlete. My first official triathlon was in 2013 and since then I have progressed from a complete newbie to having toed the line at two World Championships. There have been many ups and downs along this journey and each one has helped me grow as person and an athlete.
Why Where Your Feet Take You?
Where Your Feet Take You started merely as a blog in which I wanted to share my journey of training for a triathlon. The name came to me on a snowy day in 2013 during a long run, it was freezing cold out and had just recently snowed so with each step I could see where I had just run; my footsteps in the snow.
Seeing those footsteps resting in the quiet snow got me thinking about how far my feet had taken me, how each step has molded me, and changed me. On that day Where Your Feet Take You was born, as a way to remind myself of the journey I've taken and the many journey's that are still to come.
I look forward to hosting this journey for you and that you in turn can discover where your feet will take you!
