Ask Katie how she would define it and what that word evokes for her. Do you have a core challenge with motivation, accountability or performance that you'd love to get Katie's take on? Ask away! Do you want to know what it was really like to step onto the pool deck at 15 at her first Olympics? Or the significance of 7/100ths of a second in Katie's career? Ask and she will spill the details.
