Hi, I’m Jane! Welcome to Jane Runs Wild!

I am a 30-something mom from just outside 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. 


The History:

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 22 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.

I would love to connect with you on InstagramTwitter, and Facebook.

  1. Hi Jane, I am glad I found your blog. Now that my first marathon is done, I was wanting to do one overseas and was thinking of Paris. Hope you enjoy your run and all the other wonderful things Paris has to offer. Happy Running ! – Tania

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You have a neat blog here. Good luck with your upcoming races, and enjoy our neighbors in the big sky state. I’m hoping for Fargo around the same time. Missoula is a little too far to travel for us at this point.

    All the best.

    1. Thank you so much! I am eyeing Fargo as well, but might be tough to fit it in with my other summer plans. I have heard great things about the marathon- flat, fast, and well-organized. Looking forward to hearing how it goes for you– good luck and have fun!


      1. Flat, Fast and well-organized, indeed. One thing to prepare for is WIND! I missed it this year due to things on the home front, but we are eyeing it for next year and possibly an annual event. I do have a blog about my misadventure in 2014.

        See ya on the trails.


  3. Looks like lots of good experience to learn from here. I’m on the trails myself and though I have never officially run a marathon I’ve finished a few ultras that have of course included them.

    Looking forward to lots of idea exchange.


  4. I think it is wonderful that you combine races with traveling, like going to Paris! Amazing! I just started running, never really being much of an athlete before and so far I’ve only signed up for races near where I live, but I love the idea of seeing other places!


  5. Nice blog. You have a lot of good content and I look forward to reading more of it. I just finished my first half marathon and in the back of my mind I am contemplating a full marathon, just seems like too crazy of a thing right now. Feel free to check out my blog, https://fat2fit81.wordpress.com, where I discuss similar items as you: running, fitness, health, my journey to live a healthier life.


  6. Thanks for visiting my blog. Qualified for Boston in 1982 when the woman’s qualifying time was 3:20…I ran 3:13 and won that small NH race. In those days, you got in with any qualifying time! It was an Epic Boston with withering heat…the pavement someone said was 110 degrees. Dickie Beardsley and Alberto Salazar ran neck and neck just about the whole race with Salazar winning by an inch! Amazing they could race like that in the heat! I wilted and ran 3:30, but finished with many others falling around me! People were giving out ice cubes to put under our hats. I have since thrown out many, many T-shirts, but that’s one I saved! I now am a walker after many injured years of running…but that is one race I am grateful to have run. xo
