About Jenny

What an amazing woman: PhD, historian, teacher, marathoner, return missionary, Italian speaker, violinist, quilter, bibliophile... she does it all! Most impressive, however, is her ability to love and serve others consistently and completely, with a big smile on her face, no matter how full her plate is.

Jenny was diagnosed with leukemia in November 2010 while finishing up her doctorate and writing her thesis paper.  After enduring chemo and many months of cancer ordeals, Jenny was declared "cancer free."  She was blessed to enjoy remission, however her cancer has returned.  Now, her current full-time job is beating cancer again. We are excited to use this blog to help bring a little cheer and vicarious running adventures into her life. Plus, it's bound to be fun for all those participating!

Jenny is overwhelmed with the love and support extended to her by her friends and family and is very, very grateful.  Keep smiling, Jenny!  WE LOVE YOU!!!
