Hi! I’m Jackie. I’m a twenty-something, marathon running, health & wellness loving girl on a quest to run 26.2 in all 50 states.
The Freckled Runner started in June 2015 as a creative outlet & way to document my marathon training as well as connect with other runners. Since then, I’ve recently started a wellness blog where I focus on healthy living, exercise ideas, health/wellness tips, healthy recipes as well as my journey to becoming the best, healthiest, and most fit version of myself… if you’re into that kind of stuff, check it out -> Bean in Full Bloom! I decided to keep the two separate because I wanted a new blog name that incorporated all-things-wellness but at the same time was still attached to ‘The Freckled Runner’ & didn’t want to give it up. I want to reach a larger audience and felt having a name with ‘runner’ in it might deter people. So here we are!
I ran my first marathon in 2014 and have been hooked since. I made a lifetime goal of running a marathon in all 50 states! The grind of training for & running a marathon is such a great feeling. I would love to qualify for Boston (who wouldn’t?!) and someday hope to get there. Eventually I would love to become some type of running coach.
Join me on my quest of conquering each state, 26.2 miles at a time!1
