Episode 507: Kellyn Taylor – Mom of Four, 2:24 Marathoner for NAZ Elite Ready for Another Olympic Trials Marathon

Alright, friends. This is a special one! Kellyn Taylor is joining me on the podcast today! I am stoked to see what Kellyn is going to do at the Olympic Trials is just a few weeks!

This is Kellyn’s third appearance on my podcast. She came on way back on episode 125 in 2018, we then did a live show with NYRR in 2019 with Sara Hall and Roberta Groner, and then she came on the podcast for episode 229 right before the Olympic Trials with her teammates Steph Bruce and Aliphine Tuliamuk. 

Kellyn has been running for NAZ Elite and Hoka for years. She has been on that team since it was founded with coach Ben Rosario. Kellyn has had multiple top ten finishes at the NYC marathon and she is a 2:24 marathoner. She is the mom of four and gave birth to a baby girl just a little over a year ago! She ran her first postpartum marathon at the NYC marathon this past fall. She was the top American running 2:29:48.
