Today I’m doing my best to keep up with Jesse Davis for a handful of miles.
Jesse has twice qualified for the US Olympic trials in the marathon and has competed on the world stage, and more than held his own, against some of the best 50k runners in the world.
An Endless Evolution
Jesse’s running career continues to evolve over time.
He started his running career as a sprinter, and is proud to say he’s undefeated in the 200m!
Jesse has continued to move up in distance from the sprints to middle distance to long distance and now to ultra distance races.
While some runners lock in on one particular distance and stay there for years, Jesse enjoys continuing to push himself and try new things.
Running for Team USA
In 2015, Jesse had the opportunity to run for Team USA at the 50k road world championships.
Obviously, the experience was quite the honor and Jesse enjoyed the experience immensely.
It helps that he had a great race as well.
Jesse credits his “old man wisdom” for helping him run a smarter race than some of his younger teammates that had to learn a few lessons the hard way about racing in the heat.
Jesse will be having another chance to run for Team USA later this spring, as he was added to the team for the 100k running against a few other teams from the Americas.
