About Me

Welcome to Go Girl! I’m Kelsey, the face behind the screen. I’m a twenty-something gal from East Tennessee working hard to crush my goals.  I teach 8th grade English and am married to a super sweet husband.  I’m currently in training for an ultramarathon on March 17.  My ultimate goal is racing the states; so far I have knocked out 16 with hopes of reaching all 50 before I die.  Clearly, I’m in no rush. I’m 33 half marathons deep and don’t plan to slow down.

I am a proud plus size runner who doesn’t let my weight stand in my way. Unfortunately, I’ve spent too much of my life trying to be smaller when I should have been appreciating my worth just the way I was.  I plan to spend 2018 getting stronger both physically and mentally. If I happen to shed some pounds in the process, great, but if not, I will be happy knowing that I have actively worked towards being a stronger woman.

I recently started a podcast called Keeping Up with Kelsey. It can be found on:
iTunes | Overcast | Stitcher | Google Play
