Jennifer is a mom of 2 awesome college kids and wife to her college sweetheart. By day she is a IT Technical Lead in Corporate America. Once the 5 o’clock bell rings she is donning her run, swim or bike kit and is getting her workout done.
Jennifer has been running on and off since 2006 but didn’t really catch the bug until 2012 when neighbors encouraged her to run a local 5K and then convinced her to run a sprint triathlon. From then on Jennifer was hooked. Now you can find Jennifer running miles through Raleigh, racing on Zwift (virtual cycling app) or swimming at local lakes. Being outdoors is even more rewarding when you are training hard!
Here favorite distances are the half marathon and half ironman.
This year Jennifer is working hard to get super strong on the bike she is really ready when racing opens up later in the year. While this may not happen in 2021, Jennifer’s bucket list race is the NYC Marathon.
Gear of Choice:
Hydra 16 Hydration Belt is Jennifer’s favorite because it’s the perfect size for carrying her hydration and nutrition.
