WESTERLEIGH — There are champions who soak in the glory, stop and smell the roses, and there are those who push on immediately to the next challenge.
For 41-year-old Westerleigh resident Kerry McCole, there seem to be no boundaries.
McCole recently won the elite division of the Vermont Spartan World Championship Beast race in Killington, a physically and mentally challenging 12-mile race that included running, swimming, and 25 obstacles that test the competitor’s ability to endure.

Why would a mother of four even attempt such a race?
McCole comes from an athletic background. The track-and-field world used to know her as Kerry Moloughney, a seven-time Advance All Star and one of the Island’s best ever in that sport. Included in her athletic resume were numerous Island and Catholic High School Athletic Association titles while competing for Notre Dame Academy. At Manhattan College, she set six school records and won the Metro Atlantic conference cross country championship.
After college, there was graduate school at Long Island University, and ultimately, a doctorate in physical therapy.
Then came marriage, a job as a physical therapist, but also, still some time for training.
