Share the Journey

From the very beginning we have loved sharing the journey with all of you. From blog posts about elite athlete training, to podcasts previewing and recapping our biggest races, to workout videos showcasing our professional runners doing their altitude training in beautiful Flagstaff, Arizona, part of our mission has been to bring our fans along for the ride. And to create new fans! We hope that sharing our highs and lows, our lives outside of running, and being our true selves on this website and on social media has endeared us, and will continue to endear us, to endurance sports followers all over the world.

Team Member of the Month


Kellyn is an original member of NAZ Elite, part of the nine-person roster that formed the team in January of 2014. In the 10-and-a-half years since, she has simply had one of the longest, most successful careers of any U.S. distance runner. Her accolades include two NACAC gold medals (2014 cross country, 2015 5,000m), a bronze medal at the Pan Am Games (2015 5,000m), two national titles on the road (2014 25k, 2023 7-mile), five Olympic Trials top-10 finishes, four top-10 finishes at the TCS NYC Marathon, and personal bests of 15:11.50 for 5,000m, 31:07.60 for 10,000m, and 2:24:28 in the marathon. She is also a mother of four children, has a degree in firefighting, and is a passionate advocate for improving the foster care system in the United States. Last month she was sixth place at the U.S. Olympic Trials in the 10,000 meters and later this month she’ll attempt to defend her title at the BIX 7 in Davenport, Iowa.
