Kelly Dues

Kelly Dues is a runner and triathlete, a multi-time age group triathlon nationals qualifier/competitor, and an Ironman Triathlon finisher. She has competed in countless races at distances 5k-marathon; sprint through full Ironman, and has been part of the Chicago “athlete community” for many years as a coach with Chicago Endurance Sports. Growing up a bullied child and depressed, closeted queer teen/ young adult, Kelly found her confidence in movement. Through her inclusive multisport coaching business she hopes to empower other individuals, particularly those whom don’t always feel welcome in traditional fitness settings, to find their own inner strength in a safe and supportive environment, and in turn work together to help change the landscape of running and triathlon racing. She balances this work with her full time role as a behavior analyst for children with autism, wife to her supportive partner, and mommy to 2 fur babies(and hopefully one day a non-fur human). Kelly is an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, Ironman Certified Triathlon Coach, and Board Certified Behavior Analyst.
