So I’ve decided to try something from now, leading up to Ragnar Great River 2013. A weekly post about something related to Ragnar. Some weeks it’ll be a tip, some weeks it’ll be an update 2013 planning and other weeks I plan to profile one member of my Ragnar team (still unnamed). Should be fun!
This week I’m kicking things off with a profile. Meet Jen. Jen is sadly not on my Ragnar team this year, but is one of our fearless volunteers! (We still need two more volunteers, btw. If you’re local and interested!) Jen was also on my Ragnar team when I ran it in 2009 and she also ran it again the following year!
Name: Jen M.
Location/hometown: St. Paul, I grew up in southern Minnesota near Albert Lea
How long have you been running? I started doing track and field stuff when I was in 5th grade and competed in some local and state competitions. I made the varsity track and field team as a 7th grader and mainly competed in the 400 meter dash and 4×400 meter relay. My senior year I tried cross country and loved it. I ran casually throughout college, but I didn’t start doing longer races until after college.
