Kelli’s run story dates back to her grade school participation in the Terry Fox Run. She quickly recognized the joy and happiness running brought to her life and succumbed to the charm of glistening grassy trails. Growing up in Calgary, Canada, she participated in cross country races across the province. Fast forward to her most recent accomplishment: a second place finish in her division at the 2018 10km Calgary Marathon race.
Kelli’s passion for running is fostered by her participation in YYC Run Crew, a community of kind-hearted run enthusiasts who share sweat, laughter, post-run pastries and beverages. Her favourite part of the sport besides that “runners high” is the sense of togetherness it brings. She finds joy in supporting those around her as they achieve their goals and celebrating her own accomplishments alongside good friends.
“Despite what anyone tells you, running is a team sport. Running has brightened my soul and that’s a feeling that deserves to be shared with everyone!”
