This past Saturday was the Team Jenny 5k. This was our second year sponsoring the event and the fourth year I have run the event myself (as has Sal Abbulone). This year was a special year for us as the beneficiary was Tristan Palija, who is Shelley Rogers son. Shelley was with JG3 Fitness when it was just a pipe dream in my barn and was one of the original members who helped break in the current location.
If you have been attending the workouts over the past few months, you probably noticed a lot more running than normal was being programmed. We wanted to make sure we didn’t just participate, we went in to run for a reason. It turned out really well for all the JG3 Fitness runners and is a tremendously put on event. Greg and Jenny do a wonderful job and it always feels like a special event.
We didn’t track everyone who ran the event and for fear of missing out on anyone that we may not have caught up with, we will only share a picture of those of us who hung around for the awards ceremony. Aaron Root was the top finishing JG3 athlete (4th place overall, 1st place in age group) and we missed him in this picture. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported this great event and let’s do it again (but BIGGER) next year.
