Featured Website: Running With Jack

Posted by Filed Under: Web Sites

featured websiteI like to think of Jack as “the Running Man.” He is a very dedicated runner who started running to lose weight. He accomplished that goal and oh-so-much more. Every time I turn around he is running another race. Heck he even runs races as training runs. I bet there are a few others out there that do the very same thing. On August 28,2006, Jack is running yet another half marathon in hopes of setting a PR. Let’s all send Jack some virtual vibes and good luck for his race.

Anyone else racing this weekend or soon, don’t forget to register the event on the Running and Triathlon Race / Event Calendar so your Internet friends will be there to virtually cheer you on.

About Dawn - Pink Chick

For several years the only running I did was to run the annual 10k race in the spring. I got my best time when I ran hungover on only a few hours sleep. Finally one year I decided maybe I should really pick up running again on a regular basis and attended a running clinic. After finishing the 10k that year I continued to train and ran my first half marathon. That was in 2002. Later in 2002 I moved to Calgary where my running friends nick-named me Pink Lady, Pinko, Pinky and finally Pink Chick simply because I almost always wore pink when I ran. Truth be known I wear it almost all the time. I ran, well mostly walked, my first marathon in 2003. Since then I've run a ton of shorter 5/10k races, 9 half marathons and I added a second marathon in 2007 when I ran the San Diego RnR Marathon. Today I still run. I'm slow but I'm still out there and lovin' it. Someday I hope to join the Triathlon world.

    Jack is one of my personal heroes! He’s not just an amazing and dedicated athlete, but he’s also a wonderful husband, father, and friend. Everyone needs some “Jack” in their lives.

    Mia, I couldn’t agree more.

    In case anyone is curious how he did here’s a quote from an email he sent me “Hi Dawn. I think you’re encouragement worked wonders, I PR’rd by 6 1/2 minutes!”

    Way to go Jack!
