Jen’s career as a professional runner has spanned over 20 years. She never bought into the conventional wisdom that you have to move up in distance as you get older. Jen ran all of her personal bests in her mid thirties. She moved back down from the marathon to the 5k in 2008 and had her most successful Olympics at the 5k distance. Since turning 40, Jen has represented the US at the Word Cross Country Championships and set 2 US Masters Records.
She currently lives in San Diego, CA with her husband, Terrence Mahon. In 2018 they co-founded The Mission Athletics Club, an elite training group for aspiring Olympians in track & field. Jen is a running coach, health coach and motivational speaker.
