Featuring: Rail Trail Chicks




l to r - Jen, Jill, Carrie, Kim, Stacy & Jess




I talk about these fine ladies enough, so I thought I would feature them so my readers can get to know my girls a little better.  If it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t be out there on those freezing mornings taking on the long runs. 

Jess w/ her adorable kiddos

First up is Jess.  If you’ve been following for a while, you know that Jess and I trained for and ran the Maine Marathon together.   She has two adorable kids and a runner husband as well.  Actually, Joe, runs with Ward and my brother-in-law, Wade.

  1. What a great idea! I don't know where I would be without my running partners! I might borrow this idea for a blog post sometime if that's ok?

  2. I love this post!  What a great idea to feature each of your training buddies!  I asked my husband (my training partner) if he would consider writing a guest post and after reading this I definitely want him to!

  3. Jamie - that would be fantastic!  I'd love to read about the husband training partner's point of view.  Hmmm....now maybe I need my hubby to write a post!
