Catherine is also a member of the Cross Country and Track teams where she placed 6th and 7th in 3A events at the 1A-3A Track and Field State Championships.

Parental Guidance (PG) Rating
Catherines admires her family for being “super competitive, hard-working, and creative.” When asked who has provided the most inspiration in her life, she shared, “My mom; she's been juggling all of my family's appointments and practices and problems since I can remember but she's always on top of everything. She's really inspirational as a woman and a person.”
Catherine Aaron’s parents admire her for, “First and foremost her faith. Next are her determination, perseverance, and discipline. Last summer she ran over 500 miles in 8 weeks! She strives to improve her endurance and her speed but does so quietly and humbly. She is also kind. She treats everyone with dignity and respect.”
Parent to Parent
Rick and Eileen Aaron had this advice for other parents, “Make the time to be engaged with their life. Ensure your priorities are appropriately aligned: God, then spouse, then kids, then everything else. Being engaged with their life means spending time with them daily and keeping them engaged in life as well. Put limits on them, be consistent, and loving & understanding in enforcing them, but be firm. Our sole responsibility is to lead our children back to Him; to help them become the fullest person they were created to be.”
