About Me

Left: October 2011 a month after the birth of Theodore
Right: September 2012 after a year of consistent running

Hey Y'all! My name is Jess and I am a 33 (soon to be 34) mother of 3 boys and 1 chocolate lab puppy. Recently there have been some changes in our family, and I have become a full time stay at home mom and wife.  My life has not turned out the way I planned (having both Criminal Justice Degree and an Elementary Teaching Certificate, plus working as a marketer for 8 years) however I honestly believe I am right where I belong, and right where my husband and children need me.

I grew up an athlete, played softball, basketball and volleyball.  Dabbled in running starting in 2004 when I completed my first marathon, and really fell in love with running after the birth of my 3rd child in 2011.  However, even my life as a runner is ever changing and in 2013 I discovered trail running and the UltraMarathon world.  I am completing my first 50k Ultra on September 7th 2013 and have already signed up for my first 50 miler in August 2014.

This blog is my personal journey as I grow as a mother, homemaker, and ultra runner.  The journey may not always be pretty, and I am sure there will be bumps in the road, but in the end I have a feeling it will be worth it.

If you have questions feel free to contact me at jericson2021@gmail.com or comment directly on a post in the blog.  

If you would like to contact me for a product review please email me at jericson2021@gmail.com.  I am always willing to try new products that can make my life as a runner better or my "job" as a mother/homemaker easier.

    Hello Jessica,
    Just a quick email to ask if you would be interested in a ‘mutual’ following on twitter. (#FYI I do RT’s ‘ANYTIME’ for all #Triathletes #Cyclists #UltraRunners #Marathoners #FitnessProfessionals who follow me on Twitter and have something important they want mentioned for support…Over 41K folks at your access...) I am currently following you now and am awaiting your follow-back...

    All the very best for the rest of 2013 & beyond Jessica. Look forward to hearing from you…

    (PS. Jessica, should you follow back, I'll be mentioning you in my #FollowFriday #Shoutouts this week Friday...)
