My name is Jena, I live in New Jersey with my husband, two kids and our golden retriever Stella. Growing up I was very active, I played basketball and field hockey and during college fell in love with running. I am now an avid runner and cyclist and work in marketing. I have completed 10 marathons (including 4 Bostons), 6 half marathons, and countless 5k & 10k races. I was recently diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer which gave me the inspiration to start this community.
I created The Gluten Free Runner as an online forum by the community - for the community. Connecting runners, gluten free lifers, mothers, thyroid warriors and anyone who wants to explore a healthy lifestyle.
I am looking forward to sharing my past experiences and my journey onward navigating this new normal. My goal is to build a fantastic community, and I am so honored that you are here!
I will be blogging weekly and look forward to creating some great things together. Feel free to subscribe to get the latest from yours truly.
