Jenn’s first-ever triathlon, the 2007 Mighty North Fork in Southold, NY saw her finish 8th among women and first in her division. This early success would prove to be more than beginner’s luck as she would come back to win the Mighty North Fork in 2008, a year which brought her a podium finish for every race she entered.
In 2009, Jenn left her Wall Street career behind to focus full-time on training and coaching. While training that July 4, Jenn was in a bike crash and suffered a wrist fracture that required reconstructive surgery. Though extremely disappointed, Jenn viewed her accident as an opportunity to focus on her running, and only 10 days after surgery, she began training for the NYC Marathon, her first, which she completed in 3:23. This time put her in the top 3% among women and top 9% overall.
A History of Success
Going back to triathlon with renewed passion in 2010, Jenn set a new PR in the half ironman and secured four top-five triathlon finishes. She also beat her NYC Marathon time by nine minutes, finishing in 3:14.
2011 was another successful year of racing, which culminated in Jenn securing her Ironman 70.3 World Championship slot in Las Vegas for 2012 by finishing as first overall female amateur at Poconos Ironman 70.3.
Jenn's top achievements in 2012 include placing third overall female at the Torrey Pines Half Marathon, completing the Boston Marathon in the top 3% among women, winning her age group at both the Syracuse Ironman 70.3 and the Timberman Ironman 70.3, and finishing the Ironman Vegas World Championship 70.3 twelfth among 119 women in her age group. She finished the season ranked fourth in the world among her peers in Ironman 70.3 events and third in the United States.
Highlights of Jenn’s 2013 season include her fourth win at the Mighty North Fork triathlon in July and qualifying for the 2014 World Championship 70.3 in Mont Tremblant in September. Her Ironman 70.3 race performances earned her a place in the top 5% in the world among her peers.
