Bonnie Parrish-Kell is inspiring! She began her athletic journey at age 50 and leads a life that shows us all that we are never too old or too out of shape to lead an active lifestyle.
Based in Las Vegas, Nevada, Bonnie Parrish-Kell is the “Chief Diva” at Slowpoke Divas, an online source of information and inspiration for women – who may be overweight, out of shape, or over 40 years of age – to rediscover the joys of a healthy lifestyle and outdoor sports.
She started her athletic journey at age 50 by participating in a beginner-friendly triathlon. That single event showed her how decades of inactivity took a toll on her fitness level, strength, weight, and sense of well-being! As Bonnie then worked with a local triathlon coach, she met other women like herself who “dared to dream” of becoming runners, cyclists, swimmers, or hikers, but doubted their abilities, were afraid of ridicule, or felt unsupported. Slowpoke Divas serves to provide the support, encouragement, and community women like these wanted and needed.
Bonnie is a race walker, cyclist, an occasional triathlete, and consistent participant in state-level senior Olympics with goals of qualifying in her sports for the biennial National Senior Games. She is the triathlon coordinator for 2018 Nevada Senior Games, and an ambassador for the Huntsman World Senior Games in St. George, Utah. She is also works with the U.S. Power Walking Association.
