In a very f-ed up nutshell:

Triathlete blogger/attorney, married to Shaun until announcing last June that she is separating and needs privacy.

Within a few months, she is living with her internet BF who is also married separated.

In September, the BFs wife gives birth to a child that dies within hours. Kelly actually sees/touches dying baby in the hospital.

By December, she and BF marry and just now announce that their baby will be born 11 months after the ex's child.

Gets attention from calling out Meredith of SwimBikeMom about her sketchy weight loss plan, also gets attention from boycotting Ironman over their numbers of women, so SoFeminist.

Struggles with weight/performance due to rare conditions that no one could possibly understand. RDs some local races for profit. Links unprofessionally to her employer on her IG page.

Has excellent education (Dartmouth/Emory) but has no empathy.

Should I start knitting a layette for the baby now?

The worst part is that SHE WROTE ABOUT ALL OF THIS.  She put it on the internet for anyone to read.  I mean, you want to cheat on your husband with another married guy, fine.  That's your choice.  But maybe don't publicize it on your blog under your real name which is linked to your work?  That seems stupid.

I will NEVER read this blog, ever. I briefly read the post about the loss of the baby and thought it was extremely disrespectful for her to share that story being that the baby did not come from her and there was a mother grieving on the other side of that story. I am sure her, then fiancé, husband was grieving at that time too; however there was a mom grieving and dealing not only with the loss of her baby but of her relationship too. That story did not need to be put on the Internet. It should have remained private out of respect for the mother. It goes to show you can have a super fancy education, but be completely unintelligent or at least clueless about life.

Yea, I have a lot of mixed feelings about this blog. I don't remember how I started reading – I think I stumbled on an Instagram post of hers? I'm used to bloggers blowing sunshine about how wonderful their lives are all the time, so on the one hand, I kind of admire that she isn't really vague about things – she was blunt about the divorce, about having someone new, and about how their relationship started. The story about her now-fiancee's son was hard to read, and maybe inappropriate for her to post. I too find it hard to believe that the mother was okay with her posting that, but she made it seem like the mother was a-okay with her being there in the first place, so who knows. Also her divorce was so easy-peasy, too! They love each other but just weren't meant to be married right now.

I also can't understand her constant focus on "fat". She looks pretty good, all things considered. Someone who's dealt with some really horrible stuff, her body can do some pretty amazing things, and she's totally fixated on a few extra pounds. Grow up. Also, it's weird that she's referring to this baby as Otter too.

I just think there's a huge gap between vague-blogging and the TMI shit this chick posts.  But… I'm always very sympathetic towards vague-blogging in general.  The fact that a blogger writes in detail about some aspects of their life doesn't mean they owe me information about any other part of their life.  YMMV on how annoying vague-blogging is, of course.

I feel SO sorry for her husband's ex.  I can't imagine what she is going through.  I hope she has a support system, because her situation is f**kED… through no fault of her own.

No, you're right… she might be a b***h.  But when your husband leaves for his Internet girlfriend when you are pregnant and your child dies and you need to mourn his death and the dissolution of a marriage at the same time and two months later your ex gets his new wife/fiance/whatever pregnant, I think you can still consider her situation tough through no (or little) fault of her own.  The only part she may have played was in the dissolution of her marriage… the other shit is completely out of her control but would still be very, very difficult to deal with.

Hundo. I'm not going to waste a click on this.

I mentioned that she was a SOMI for me in the Swim Bike Mom thread but that was because I hadn't read the post linked in the top and had only randomly read some of her triathlon related stuff.  Holy hell. I get that people can have complicated personal lives but this is appalling.

I actually liked her blog for a while – like someone else mentioned, at least at first glance it just seems like she's keeping things real. I liked her involvement with TriEqual (I think? There are at least a couple variations, but in any case involved in equal Kona representation), and she's done some posts about the IronMan corp (actually that Ryan wrote, but posted on her blog) that I found interesting. 

I can't remember how long I've been reading, but it was after she was already with Ryan – it wasn't until she shared the story more recently about the baby that I realized it was a newer relationship and the background.

I side eyed that, and then was glad when someone brought her up in the swimbikemom thread and articulated what it was that was bothering me about it!

I don't think it's great how they got into their relatiomship, but whatever. I guess being honest about it is good in a way. But the way she acted about the baby – it's not your baby! You can be supportive of your partner (whose baby it is) without making it your own story. And I don't know if her pregnancy was planned or not, but dude, I can't imagine having a baby dying combined with a divorce, and then have my ex get pregnant that quickly with his new partner. How devastating. And then have the whole thing splashed around the internet as part of the new partner's story, ugh.
