Kelly Dunleavy O’Mara is a writer and reporter living in Marin County, with an expertise in endurance sports, business, travel, brownies, and science-fiction. One of those doesn’t come in handy.
She was born in Kentucky, spent her childhood in Florida, grew up in Chicago, and now lives across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. That makes her pretty multi-cultural.
One day, Kelly hopes to be a less positive version of Oprah. Most recently, she was the editor of San Anselmo-Fairfax Patch, covering San Anselmo and Fairfax (duh), and before that she was the editor of a paper that covered the same area. Right now, she writes for magazines, websites, and newspapers. She also helps produce and hosts a weekly TV show, appears on radio and TV to speak on a range of topics, and coaches running and swimming.
Kelly used to race as a professional triathlete. Now, she just races when she feels like training for a race — and sometimes she races even when she didn’t feel like training.
You can read her blog about running and sports, It’s Always Sunny Running, to actually get to know her and stuff. She also has another blog about more general stuff, but almost never does anything with it: Almost as Good as a TV Show. And, this is when she’s done talking in the third-person — right now.
