Hi. I'm Jenna, 33 years old living in the beautiful Pacific NW. In the summer of 2012 I got married to the absolute love of my life, on Ruth Glacier in Alaska! I have two children (ages 7 & 10). I recently got a new job working in downtown Portland (and sometimes from home) and I love it!

Hi. I'm Jenna, 33 years old living in the beautiful Pacific NW. In the summer of 2012 I got married to the absolute love of my life, on Ruth Glacier in Alaska! I have two children (ages 7 & 10). I recently got a new job working in downtown Portland (and sometimes from home) and I love it!

Diet/Weight/Exercise History:
In college I wore a sizes 12-16 (unsure of weight at that time).
After college I started really dieting & working out and got down into the 140s for the first time in my adult life.
I got pregnant and subsequently married in 2004. Gained a little weight from the pregnancy and started running to work it off - ran my 1st 5K in 2005.
I didn't keep running and gradually started to gain the weight back and got pregnant again in early 2007, gaining much more weight than with my first pregnancy. I weighed 202 lbs when I came home from the hospital.
I started running again to work it off - running more 5Ks, 3 half marathons and my first full marathon in 2008.
I kept running through 2011 (I was at or close to my goal weight of 135 this whole time) until my marriage ended and I took a break from just about everything...including paying attention to my weight. I got up to nearly 170lbs.
Although I was aware of my gain and made small efforts to lose weight I was not ready to really dedicate myself until I joined Spark People in December 2012. My weight at that time was 158. My goal is 135.

UPDATE: 12/4/2013
It has been almost 1 year since I joined SparkPeople and it has been a really fun way to get my life back on track. When I joined I hadn't ran a race in over a year - this year I ran 2 half marathons and a 10K (setting personal records in both distances - sub-1 hr 10K for the 1st time, and sub-2 hr half marathon for the 1st time), got to run Hood to Coast, and I weigh 20+ lbs less than a year ago!

Not only have I nearly reached my original goal (which was to weigh 135 and get running again), I'm now on-track for 130 and have my sights set on qualifying for the Boston Marathon (something I thought was far-fetched for many years - even when running regularly). I can't wait to update this again next year!

UPDATE: 1/24/2015
It has been over 2 years since I joined SparkPeople. This year I ran the Shamrock Challenge 15K at a 8:10pace, set an amazing marathon PR at the Newport Marathon (3:54:18), and earned my Spartan Trifecta - completing all 3 distances of the Spartan Races (Spring in PacNW, Super in LV, and Beast in Temecula).

I recently re-set my weight loss starting point at 143 and am aiming for 127 (or whenever I feel at the top of my game) as I train for the Canyonlands Half Marathon and Newport Marathon - where I'm hoping to run a sub 3:30 and qualify for Boston 2016.
