Kelly Tamerlano

You are loving these weekly spotlights. Thanks for encouraging one another. Today let’s meet Kelly Tamerlano. ⠀

Hey, my name is Kelly Tamerlano and I have been married to my college sweetheart for 18 years. We have 2 kids: Maura, age 9, and Johnny, age 5, plus two rescue dogs, Phoebe and Aggie. ⠀

Why did you start running?⠀I started running a little over 10 years ago. If someone had told younger me that I would love running and that it would be such a big part of my life I would never have believed them!⠀

Favorite race(s) in Central Ohio?⠀My favorite race in Columbus is the Nationwide Children’s Marathon and I am so happy that it will be back this fall in person!⠀
What advice would you give to someone just getting started?⠀
My advice to a runner starting out would be that anyone who runs is a runner, no reason to get hung up on pace or distance, if you are placing one foot in front of the other on purpose you are a runner. And, don’t let anyone tell you different!⠀
