Alright runner. Quality writer. America’s sweetheart. Big fan of coffee and high fives.
Hi, my name is Jake. I’m a 25 year old man-child living in the Northwest Wisconsin with my lovely (and pregnant) fiancée and two beautiful dogs. And my brother–who insisted I include him in this bio.
I’m content writer by trade, runner by nature.
Running is something that’s always made sense to me. I don’t really know how to explain it any better than that. I’ve been running on and off for the better part of the past ten years (holy shit that’s wild to me) at levels of competitiveness varying from “not at all” to “collegiate athlete.”
Right now we’re sitting somewhere around the “down-but-not-out” phase–I’m definitely not as speedy as I used to be but I’ve still got some fight left in me.
At this point, I’ve shifted focus from 5Ks to the marathon distance, hoping to snag a BQ this spring. After that, maybe we move into Ultra territory? We’ll see where that goes.
I’ve created this site to focus on running, races, training… Essentially my fitness adventure.
I’m just an Average Joe who likes to run, write and drink a lot of coffee. This allows me to do two of those three things. And who knows? Maybe it’ll help inspire someone to start out on their own journey.
Thanks for reading.
