About Jess
I work at Brooks in the fun and energetic marketing department in support of our athlete events. I ran at the University of Washington and now run marathons and just daily for fun. I love to eat pizza or waffles after my runs. My favorite Brooks shoe is the Launch!

    Any secret hints as to if Chrissie’s going to be doing any training runs on the lakefront? Early morning or late evening runs? I can’t get out of work, but would be a cool chance of a lifetime to run beside (or cross paths with) THE world champ!
