Running began as a more recreational pursuit through highschool and university. She completed many half marathons through her undergraduate degree and did 1 road marathon, before turning to the trails. Upon finishing school, she decided to embark on an Ultra trail marathon. After her first 50km she entered a 50miler and wanted to grow on distances and competitive racing from there.
For Jenny racing is about finding out what she is capable of, physically and mentally. She believes her greatest strength in the sport is her positive attitude and ability to remain focused when challenges arise.
