My name is Jenna. Running is my passion, sport and sanity. I have been fortunate to compete as a semi-professional athlete for 7 years, in between having 3 children, running my own photography business and raising three young daughters. After the birth of my third daughter in June 2012 (“babies done, now to run”), I focused on improving my running to achieve certain goals important to me as an athlete. One of these was to represent my country. In 2013 I was selected to join Elana Mayer’s prestigious Endurocad Satellite group of athletes. The group’s objective is to identify and prepare national athletes for World Championship and Olympic participation and success.
In February 2013 I was selected to represent South Africa at the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships held in Copenhagen.
