Carolee Belkin Walker

I started running in summer 2014 for the awesome calorie burn. Since then, I've run more than a dozen half marathons and finished my first marathon in Negril, Jamaica, in December 2015, and became a finisher at the Marine Corps Marathon on October 22, 2017. I completed my first triathlon on June 12, 2016, in Cape Henlopen, Delaware. My book, Getting My Bounce Back, was published in spring 2018.

Professionally, I am a career professional at the U.S. Department of State.  As a former GovLoop Featured Blogger, I wrote about leadership, mentoring, and career development, and my articles on U.S. life and culture for the Department have been translated into multiple languages and published around the world. My freelance fitness writing appears in The Washington Post, Women's Running, ThriveGlobal, the Huffington Post, and other publications.
