With all of our efforts surrounding raising funds for the Adirondack Medical Center, it’s sometimes easy to lose sight of the fact that I signed up for a 140.6 mile race in 80 days (and counting). But, here we are in the middle of April and training is beginning to truly ramp up at this point. …

June was a rough month for me — a trial at work, filing for divorce, lots of trips to and from Maine and then racing Challenge Atlantic City.  By the end of the month I was completely burnt out and sick.  Ridiculously, unhappily, miserably sick.  I spent the first two months of July with a …

I am a firm supporter of #50WomentoKona and I make no bones about the fact that I support equality for professional triathletes.  Due to my outspoken stance on the issue I have been asked several times what my views are on the age group qualification process for Kona.  First, let me stress that the professional …

I tend not to write about too much personal stuff, but I figured I needed to give a bit of an update about what’s going on in my little world.  While racing Challenge Atlantic City on June 29, 2014, I flipped my bike over a guardrail.  On the way over my right knee made contact …

On June 29, 2014 I flipped my bike over a guard rail at Challenge Atlantic City, which resulted in a deep horizontal laceration above my right knee.  My first thought once I landed twenty feet down an embankment on the other side of the guard rail was “can I finish the race?”  After looking down …

Months and months ago when Doug gave me my histogram for the year there was a slot for a race on the weekend of July 2nd.  Problem with the weekend of July 2nd is the fact that there are no races because of the holiday.   After lots of searching, I found an Olympic distance race …

Please Pass the Felix Felicis

Sitting around at MIT this past weekend waiting for a review of our swim analysis videos, I asked Jeff how many minutes he wanted me to give him when we raced Rev 3. Jeff responded that he was going to beat me straight up and essentially have the race of his life. I laughed and …

Snow Dash 5K

January 9th, 2011 | Posted by Kelly Burns Gallagher in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

I forgot how much 5Ks can hurt. Today was the Snow Dash 5K and I haven’t “run” a 5K in almost two years and I use the word “run” in the loosest possible way. The last time I crossed the finish line of a 5K, I did so in 29 minutes and change — just …
