In 2010, Jarrod challenged his brother, and ultimately himself, to run their first half marathon. Since crossing that finish line, Jarrod’s not only hooked, but the bug has spread much further. In addition to his brother, Jarrod’s wife, sister-in-law, both of his brother-in-laws, a number of his friends, and his family’s friends have now dove headfirst into the running world of half and full marathons all because of that challenge back in 2010. As if that’s not enough, his 7yr old and 9yr old boys already have a number of 5Ks under their belts and keep begging for more.
Jarrod’s completed more than 45 half, full, and ultra-marathons combined, consisting of multiple 50Ks, 60Ks, and then met his 50M goal before turning 40 in 2017. His sights are now set on completing a 100M. He feels strongly that if you don’t have goals, you’ll never know how hard and far to push yourself. Jarrod enjoys pacing because he loves to give back and watching others accomplish their own goals and PRs.
