Kelly Lefler

June, 2018

Kelly tried several sports growing up before settling on swimming and cross country. She was nowhere near the front of the pack in either but had fun and continued to do both, occasionally running a 5k or 10k with friends and family and swimming as cross training. After becoming a bike commuter, she realized there were races that did all three of these sports. She signed up for the Chicago Triathlon with Team in Training and fell in love with the sport while training for and doing that race! Since then, Kelly has raced sprint through IM distances. One of her favorite parts of the sport is the fun supportive community, and she enjoys mentoring tri newbies.
