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!

2 Cello Players Rock AC/DC’s ‘Thunderstruck’ [Video]

"Thunderstruck." What a great song.

Not only is it a staple in rock music, but it also comes along with an amazing drinking game.

If you haven't heard of it, let me break it down.

A group of people stand in a circle, when they say "THUNDER" someone starts drinking, you don't stop until they say "THUNDER" again and that is when the next person in the circle begins. Pretty basic.

Jackie’s Run Disney Mixup

A little over a month ago I traveled to Disney World to run the inaugural Dopey Challenge. The dopey challenge was a crazy run where Thursday you race a 5k, Friday you race a 10k, Saturday a half-marathon and Sunday you finish it off by running a full marathon! It was a crazy fun weekend (that I don't think I will attempt again any time soon!) That said there seems to have been a small mixup on the races side of things.

The Cutest Effin’ Animal Report

I don't care who you are, you cannot look at these animals and not say, "Holy f*ck! That is the cutest damn thing I have ever seen!"

I decided who doesn't love looking at cute animals? Everyone loves it!

Unless you are one of those weirdo serial killers who begin by torturing animals before you move on to humans, which in this case, eww, this post isn't directed toward you anyway!
