About

Hi, I'm Kathy Jackson, and I'm the Chief Editor here at OutdoorSportInsight.

You know what? The mention of the word “outdoor(s)” just makes me want to expound on it again and again. Well, it all started in my childhood.  I was more of an outdoors kid. I liked playing in the rain, enjoying the cold splashes of the waters as I ran around in the mud, laughing. No, not even my mom's scolds could stop me, nor could the sneers from my peers in the hood. Who cared what they thought – I needed to be FREE!.

With time, as I approached teenagerhood, I took up rock climbing with a passion, which made my mom speechless. At this point, she had to throw in the towel and admit that I belonged outside doing my thing. Because I even switched to outdoor workouts; I no longer wanted to go to the gym. From jogging to strolling and doing short runs, I would hit each one of those trails like it was my last. I was often spotted at triathlons and marathons, either participating or helping cheer on the participants. Needless to say, I've experimented with a ton of outdoor sports – from hiking to skiing and snowboarding, you name them. One thing did lead to another and I couldn't help but come up with a platform to share my experiences. Then, OutdoorSportInsight was born.
