Renee has been a mentor with Fleet Feet for as long as I can remember. She’s taken a season or two off here and there to train in a different way, but I’m so happy she returns to us. She’s a valuable mentor and role model for our participants, has a good head on her shoulders, and has a lot of heart for running, the program, and helping others to be successful. (It’s also super satisfying to know we have a knowledgeable nurse in our midst during training runs!)

This week another Jen is featured in the blog, and she’s another of my favorites. Jen Edwards was one of the mentors of my pace group during my first Fleet Feet training program when I was training for the inaugural Rock ‘n’ Roll Raleigh Half Marathon. This gives me firsthand knowledge of how much she cares about her program participants. I learned a lot from her that season, including how to fuel with Gu and what #BAMR means. I’ve benefited from her concern at the end of one the hottest half marathons in Raleigh, Race 13.1, where she showed up with a bucket of icy towels at the finish line. I have laughed over hundreds of her Facebook posts over the years and relish her sense of humor. I aspire to visit a brewery with her after a long run one of these days! Read on to find out more Jen, one of our mentors with the longest running tenure at Fleet Feet. Her answers in this interview remind me that we truly have the best, most caring mentors in our programs.
