Every time this girl spotted a hottie on the run she would pull up her front facing camera and snap a pic of him in her background! HA!

Look at this gallery of funny photos from her latest race.

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.

Jackie Races The Dopey Challenge: Part 2

In Part One of my The Dopey Challenge saga, I shared about my trip to Florida, recovering from strep throat and running (too fast) in the 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) run last Thursday.

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.

Photos From Jackie’s Finish At The Air Force Marathon

Last Saturday I raced in the Air Force Marathon, fantastic experience with some of my running friends!  I opened my email today to find some photos that were taken during the race.  When I look back to running I remember feeling really crappy but in these photos I just look like a goof ball!  Mile 9 I was flashing the ROCK ON sign... Mile 19 I decided to be a Wayland Warrior!  Then of course there's the finish... those are just ugh!
