Kelly from Beneath It All has inspired us with her intense training regimen for her upcoming half Ironman. As a recent college grad who is in the midst of wedding planning, this girl is taking on a lot of changes with no fears! We love her positive outlook on life, her family of fitness enthusiasts and the coupon clipping tips she posts to help us all save some hard-earned cash. Read on for more about her fitness dreams and how she reaches the finish line.
I’m happiest when I’m: With my two dogs and fiance, Anthony! We adopted our dogs from shelters and giving them a good life is really important to us.
On my fit life list: I hope to complete a full Ironman someday. I’m currently training for my first half Ironman and am loving the training! I can’t imagine how awesome it would feel to cross the finish line of a full. That 140.6 car sticker is calling my name!
My “I Did It” moment: When I first got into running, I randomly signed up for a 15-mile trail race with friends. I had only completed a couple of 5Ks previously, and my longest training run was 10 miles. No other finish line has ever felt so good.
My biggest indulgence: I have a huge sweet tooth! I eat ice cream almost every night.
My motivation comes from: My desire to live a healthy and full life. I have the word “live” tattooed on my foot to remind myself to live every day to the fullest. I never want to regret not accomplishing my goals.
