Kelly is a writer and reporter in Marin County, which is across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. She primarily writes about endurance sports, gender issues, food and health. She also write lots of deeply insider things about triathlon.
She used to be the editor for San Anselmo-Fairfax Patch, and before that was the editor of a paper that covered the same area. She’s also produced and hosted a weekly show on local news, and has appeared on radio and TV to talk about triathlon, haunted houses, and CHP helicopters. Along with her reporting work, Kelly manages online communications and social media projects for corporate companies and media brands.
After college, she briefly raced as an elite triathlete, but got injured, burned out, and quit the sport for a few years. In the last year, Kelly returned to amateur racing, training a lot, and competing more than ever. She’ll be turning professional at the end of 2016, after a successful year and her first Ironman World Championships. She occasionally coaches triathlon clinics, swim groups, youth athletes, and high school running. If you want to read more about triathloning, check out her blog Sunny Running — it’s an ironic name.
