Jackie

I am Jackie a Ferris State University grad. I spent my time at Ferris running on the varsity cross country and track team, Even though I am out of college I still am a crazy runner girl. I have done 5 marathons, and plan to do many more! I began my career in broadcast when I was 24 and interned at Free Beer and Hot Wings in the Morning. That is where I got the incredibly accurate nick name of "Jackie Man Voice" or "JMV." From there I worked weekends on GRD and Channel 957 for a while until I was moved up to nights. I hosted the nightly Rocktagon for 2 years before I was moved again to where I am today, midday's (10-3 M-F) I like to read more than anyone should, I am a musical theatre nut, I cosplay, dabble in pageants, and have a geek side a mile long. I am very active and I have a rare ability to go out and be crazy, and still get up hung over as all get up and go for my run... My favorite band ever is Shinedown I love them! Catch me stumbling around Grand Rapids at our many GRD concerts and events. Of course you can also hear me Monday through Friday, 10AM to 3PM on GRD!

Check out this video and tell me it's not just insane what technology can do! The man in the video had a severe spinal chord injury and couldn't walk and was confined to a wheel chair. With this new device it keeps him not only upright in a standing position but it moves and allows him to sit, stand and do other functions! Check out the video below.

Well, much happened after that 5K.

Friday came and my group of AT-Children's Project running pals awoke at 3 a.m. and drove from our rental house out to EPCOT at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.

Jackie Races The Dopey Challenge: Part 1

Whew! It has been a long, long week for me folks.

You, perhaps, heard me Monday on air sounding a tad hoarse.

Well, I ended up having to go to the hospital for a super bad case of strep throat! Yuk!

It was awful, and I didn't know adults still got sick like that. I thought that was like a kid thing. I was most definitely wrong!

Australian Couple Runs a Marathon Every Day of 2013

As many of you might know, I am a crazy runner. 

When I talk about my running endeavors, many people act like I am crazy. But the truth is it's just like those of you who maybe played soccer from when you were 4 years old, or started football back in the rocket football days and still play occasionally today.
