Keith Kelly

I'd never heard of Keith Kelly till I watched this video of him yesterday. He's quite an engaging and entertaining interview. I'd like to meet him.

Here's his bio from Flotrack:

Keith Kelly recalls XC '00
Keith Kelly may be one of the best "true" cross country runners I have met. In 2000 during his senior year at Providence, Keith had what most would consider a dream season. The Providence men were undefeated until nationals winning Big East Conference and Northeast Regional Titles. At the NCAA Championships, considered one of the coldest ever, Keith went on to win the individual crown while leading his team to a third place finish behind Arkansas and Colorado (not bad company). Since his college days he has battle injury after injury including multiple stress fractures. This past winter after only a short stink of health and consistent training, Keith won the Irish Cross Country Championships. Afterwards, the same day of the race, he suffered another stress fracture and has not been able to train much since. If you know Keith then you know he thrives off of people, running, and don't forget Radiohead. We wish Keith all the best and hope to see him back at it again soon.

Check out Keith's blog to check out his training (he bikes a ton when he can't run), life, and music advice....great stuff all around. kelrock.blogspot.com
