Jen Miller has created a career for herself as a writer that allows her to not only pursue her passion for the written word but to do so while running regularly as well.
Jen got into running in a way that is rather unique, she was writing a piece for a running magazine where the magazine hired a coach for her to train for a 5k race. She wasn’t really looking forward to running, and wasn’t planning on sticking with it after the story, but her plans changed and she is definitely a runner now.
And being a runner has served her well ever since, through all of the ups and downs of life since then. She continues to run and write about running, and her stories have been featured in a number of running magazines and other print publications. We talked about all this and more during our run today, and here are some of the highlights from our conversation.
- Our mutual disdain for running 5ks appropriately, aka at vomit level
- Her story of how she got hooked on running
- Her book that will be coming out in 2016, looking at her love of running
- Some of her favorite articles that she’s written
- Disney running and costumed runners
