Hi, I’m Jenn!
I discovered during the summer of 2009 that I love to run. I ran my first half marathon in August, and my first full marathon in November, and a slew of other races in between. I’m a middle-of-the-pack girl chasing a dream to be a Boston qualifier.
I moved to Papua New Guinea in March of 2011, and being a runner here is a real challenge. My PRs (which probably won’t be going anywhere for a tragically long time) are as follows:
5k: 23:59 (it might be a few seconds faster but it wasn’t chip timed and I missed hitting my Garmin at the end, so this is what I’m calling it.)
Half Marathon: 1:48:33
Marathon: 4:08:12 (I’m least proud of this one. I have yet to run a marathon where I don’t blow up.)
