Neely was born into this sport, literally. Her dad was running the Boston Marathon on the day she was born. In 2016, Neely debuted at the Boston Marathon and was the first American finisher in 2:35. Later that year, she took it a step further with a 2:34 and 8th place finish at the NYC marathon. In 2018, Boulder, Colorado resident, Neely, took time away from her running career to start a family and welcomed her son Athens in July. Between training, competing, and momming, she enjoys coaching her team of athletes through her Get Running coaching business. She is excited to get back to racing and working towards the 2020 Olympic Trials.
