Jen Conner - Lino Lakes, MN
Jen considers running her “accidental hobby.” She got into running in June 2017 when a friend asked her to participate in her first 5K. Back then, her goals were to finish and not die!
Since then, she has completed a total of 34 races, with her 10 year-old completing over half with her! For Jen, “It’s not about speed. It’s about the determination to keep going, even when I’m tired and want to quit.” What a great attitude!
Her personal challenge is finding the time to work out, especially since her family had a bump in the road with an unexpected injury to her son while in gym class. She maintains a positive attitude when faced with life’s challenges and makes it a point to get her miles in somehow through it all. She hopes that she can inspire others with the story of her “accidental hobby."
