Kelly Burns Gallagher   Sonic Endurance

Dedicated to helping athletes of all abilities achieve their endurance goals.


I grew up swimming (distance freestyle and butterfly) and transitioned to water polo at Dartmouth College (Class of 2002). I started running during my last year of law school at Emory (Class of 2005). After ankle surgery in 2005, I bought a bike for cross training and participated in my first triathlon, the Niantic Bay Sprint in August of 2006. Since then I have raced in over 50 events including eight 140.6 races. I currently focus on long course racing and and half marathons and 140.6 races are my favorite events.

In addition to racing, I am a coach and race director for Sonic Endurance. I am a USAT Level 1 coach and a USMS level 2 coach and work with athletes of all abilities. I race direct the Greater Hartford 1/4 Marathon, Solstice Sprint 5K and Hogsback Half Marathon and have raised over $70,000 through these races for the Blazeman Foundation, Farmington Village and Library Association and Running for Rescues. I am also a writer for, an awesome website out of Australia that focuses on women in triathlon.
