Episode 125: Kellyn Taylor

Kellyn Taylor joins me on the show today to talk about her huge PR and course record at Grandma’s Marathon. Kellyn ran a 2:24:28, shattering the course record by 2 minutes, taking 4 minutes off her PR of 2:28 and becoming the 7th fastest American Woman in the marathon of all time.  She bounced back to run this race, just 8 weeks after a DNF at the Boston Marathon due to hypothermia.

Kellyn is a Mother, a Wife, a Certified Firefighter and runs professionally for NAZ Elite and Hoka One One under coach Ben Rosario. She has been training her butt off for years for a day like she had at Grandma’s. Kellyn has a long list of huge accomplishments, like finishing 6th at the Olympic Marathon Trails and 4th in the 10K Marathon Trials in 2016. Kellyn has big hopes and dreams for the 2020 trials and I do believe this 2:24 puts her in the game more than she already was.
