I started JRC because I wanted to help people, and I had a passion to want to do things different and better. My goal is to take running in Jacksonville to a whole nother level!
I’m originally from Orlando, FL and my favorite race is the Marine Corp Half Marathon here in Jacksonville. My personal goal is to go under 4:45 for the half ironman!
One of my favorite races is the Tallahassee Ultra Distance Classic because it pushed me way beyond my comfort zone. It was my first race out of this city, and for an Ultra distance.
My job at JRC is to share my love of fitness with others; any way I can help someone get on their feet! My favorite race is the Susan G. Komen; I love the energy.
The mantra I live by is to enjoy life, this is no dress rehearsal! My goal is to keep running into my 70’s, 80’s & 90’s and to win my age group!
My favorite race is the Gate River Run because I like the 15k distance, running the bridges, and the post-race beer. At JRC, it’s nice to see people get excited as their hard work pays off.
I have been a loyal customer and running participant with JRC since they first opened! I wanted to join the staff to help encourage and empower runners to strive for their goals!
One of my favorite races I’m loyal to is the local 26.2 With Donna. It was my first marathon and became my 20th marathon on the 5th Anniversary of the run!
