Jenny formulated a training plan with Lachie and began the journey to New York. Her commitment to training even extended to running in temperatures of below 10 degrees through the snow while on holidays in Sweden.

The Impact of 2020 

Jenny entered 2020 well on her way to achieving her experience never felt possible but like the saying goes, all good plans are meant to be broken and in this case Jenny had to do a major pivot in her plans. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the New York marathon was cancelled.

For many this would be more than enough to derail their focus, however Jenny didn’t take her eye off the ball and stayed disciplined with her training waiting for her next opportunity to arise. In the middle of May 2020 this appeared with PEAK’s Dream Big Virtual Running Festival. Jenny signed herself up for the 21.1km 10 weeks out from the big event. Facing barriers with injuries particularly from her knee that resulted in her having to significantly drop her training load, Jenny continued to power through. Finally the day arrived on the 1st of August. Starting at Hamilton and finishing at Newstead Jenny completed the 21.1km in just under 3 hours.

It is not only running that Jenny has continued to push herself out of her comfort zone with. Each week in her prevention classes she is working towards specific chosen goals. Her current one is to be able to do 50 push ups by her next birthday and still has her sights set on completing a full marathon. We can’t wait to see you tick this one off in the future Jenny!
