Hi, I’m Jane! Welcome to Jane Runs Wild!
I am a 30-something from Boston, MA and I love to run, travel, and be out in the wild! I am a RRCA (Road Runners Club of America) certified running coach and a member of the 50 states marathon club, slowly checking off those states! Follow my blog for a glimpse into all of those things. Also, check out my posts on the Run Farther and Faster blog for more running-related material!
After casually running track in High School and part of college, I built up the courage to jump to 26.2 miles. My sister and I signed up for our first marathon together at Disney World in Orlando, a great choice for a first marathon! I had no idea what to expect on race day, but once I crossed the finish line I knew that it would not be my last marathon. I couldn’t have anticipated the experience to influence the start of an adventurous, dedicated relationship with the sport that has resulted.
Since then, my runner’s high has carried me through 20 more marathons, many more half marathons, and an ultramarathon. I have found that, much like anyone else, my life has been filled with many highs and lows, but running has always been a constant positive influence. The feelings of accomplishment and inner strength that running have given me are empowering and persistent. I have been careful to never outrun the joy of running by mixing races and travel, training with friends, maintaining patience, and making sure that in the end I am having fun out there.
