Katie Burke, Accountancy lecturer in the Cofrin School of Business, can give a very interesting answer to how she spent her summer. For starters she can say that she won the Boom Run at the Three Rivers Roleo and took second at World’s in the Boom Run this year. The boom run is a series of logs tied end to end and the athlete sprints across them and races back.
Burke is a log roller and boom runner and has competed in log rolling for three decades. At the age of 6, while in swim class, she watched her brother take a logrolling class and insisted on signing up.
