From the moment Jenn ran her first sprint AR in Winder, GA she was hooked on adventure racing. Back then, it was hard to even fathom all the amazing places she would get to explore as a result of getting hooked on this sport. Jenn loves the multi facets of adventure racing – incredible teammates, seeing amazing wilderness areas, pushing your mental and physical limits, and the joy of crossing the finish after hours of pure fun. Jenn and her husband, Ed, both share a passion for exploring new trails wherever their travels may take them. Being the eternal optimist helps Jenn keep her spirits and those of her teammates up (even in those wee hours of the morning)!
