About Me

 

Welcome to my site! I’m Jessica, I’m a wife and Mom of 2 boys living in the great state of Michigan! I also work full-time and I RUN! I started running in 2015 after saying my whole life that I could never run due to asthma. I was overwhelmed with work and parenting and needed an outlet for myself. I had no idea at that time how much running would change my life. I didn’t know about splits, races, or workouts I just knew I wanted to run. I signed up for a half marathon on my 32nd birthday and training all summer for it. Since then I have ran 2 full marathons and countless half marathons and other distance races.

I have a big dream to qualify for Boston one day and I work every day to get there! My training consists of early morning runs before I go to work for the day.

It’s a crazy life but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

  2. So fun!! Love you’re doing a blog! That half sounded awful!! We can’t PR at every race…my last half I was training for my first sub 2:00 and was so motivated. Then I got ankle tendonitis and it was my slowest and hardest race to date. But we all learn so much mentally from the hard races! Good luck and thanks for all your inspiration!

  3. Hi Jess, I saw you on Instagram and I really like your posts. Are you interested in being a brand ambassador for the SHIFT band we developed for the Garmin and Apple Watch? I understand you would need to run with it first so I can send you one to try if you’re interested. Based on your interest, we may have some other commercial opportunities for you. Check it out here : https://www.getedgegear.com/

    Would love to hear back from you.
    Best running,
    Andrew
