Mother of 4 kids, Kelly Wells, tells us about her Boston Birth and more after her first place finish at the 2011 Kings Mountain Marathon. Only 4 months after giving birth to her 4th child she toed the line at the Boston Marathon. Please consult a physician, not Kelly. Way to go Mom!! You inspire greatness!
Off Camera, when we asked her about her inspiration for running marathons and who inspired her.. she answered that a lady out of Atlanta, GA name Beth McCurdy is her inspiration and the reason she got into running Ultra-Marathons. Its amazing that this Mother of 4 is able to find the time to juggle the kids, work, and the training involved in running these insane distances. When we asked her if it would be alright to shoot the video.. she was fine and seemed so happy to contribute however she could to inspiring others to find the same happiness that she has discovered on the roads.
Her most memorable memory was Qualifying for Boston in The Georgia Marathon, which by the way, is no easy task – as the Georgia Marathon is one hilly course thru downtown Atlanta and the surrounding areas.
