About Me

Hi, I’m Jenny, welcome to my little corner of the internetz.

I’m a 20-something college graduate working in Washington, D.C. For no apparent reason I signed up to run my first marathon in 2011. It was a long journey involving shin splints, a stress fracture, a lot of sweat and tears and the occasional bit of blood, but I crossed the finish line at the 2011 Marine Corps Marathon.

I’ve since completed a number of races including 4 half-marathons and zero 5ks. This blog  documents the many trials and tribulations that crop up as I train for my second (and probably last, as I think I might die at the finish line) marathon. Oh, and also so I have an excuse to post awesomely ridiculous photos of myself.

About Me

I’m originally from Minnesota, but have spent the last 6 years in the DC area, first attending college and now working at a real, grown-up job. I’m currently trying to strike a balance between work, puppies, wedding planning, a freelance writing career and marathon training. So far, I haven’t quit so I’m considering that a win! You can read more about my running story here.

I love sarcasm (if you don’t get it I suggest finding another blogger to follow), cereal, the NY Giants (you can read about my love for them here), grocery store samples, the color green, rum, road trips, thrift stores, road trips involving thrift stores and sunshine. I really love coffee. It’s the most meaningful relationship in my life.

I hate the DC Metro system (fail), the color black, people who don’t get sarcasm, rude people, bad beer, peaches,  and spiders. I really hate bad coffee. It makes me cry. So if you ever want to be my friend make sure to bring along some good, strong coffee. Otherwise, friendship over.

    I am a TNT alumnus and wish I had been blogger when I trained for the Nike Women’s marathon! Love your blog (I found you on twitter with all the #HLS posts!) Good luck!

      Welcome! Glad you were able to find my little corner of the internetz. I’ve loved training with TNT so far, though I’m not so sure about marathon training itself…

      Any tips for a newbie marathoner? I’m absolutely terrified!

    So glad we met this weekend at HLS! We have to meet up sometime soon — we live too close to each other not to! 🙂

      It was fabulous meeting you too! Glad we were able to share that cab. And agreed, we live much too close not to take advantage of happy hour!
