Kelly Teeselink

Kelly Teeselink lives in Iowa City, Iowa, where unfortunately, there are no mountains but there are more trails (and hills) than you would think. She began running in 2011 as way to lose weight using the Couch to 5k program. After increasing mileage and discovering trail and ultrarunning, she also discovered that running helped shift the way she viewed her body from focusing on what it looked like to what her body could do and accomplish.She is lucky enough to help share that message with young girls as executive director of Girls on the Run of Eastern Iowa. She lives with her boyfriend/crew chief for life and three cats just outside of Iowa City across from a cornfield.
