Hi there and welcome! I'm Jessica. Join me for the ups and downs of running life!
I started this site to share my running journey. Since then, I've run a lot, accomplished a lot. And now, I'm coaching as well as running!
A bit about me to start. If you want more of my backstory, check out the "ABOUT" page. I am a runner. Not by profession, but by passion. I have a day job, as a scientist for the federal government, but you won't hear me talk about that much. I have a husband who is incredibly supportive of my crazy running efforts. And, three fur babies of the canine persuasion. We live in a beautiful place called Dauphin Island.
I started running in middle school, through high school, and on into college. Well, for the first two years. At that point, I realized that I could be a mediocre Division II athlete, or be a fun-loving, care-free college student. Guess which one I picked? But, running and I never parted for long. We flirted off and on for many years, until things got serious. I've accomplished some of my big goals... including the World Marathon Challenge, but there is always another dream to chase!
