We’re happy to welcome Jaclyn Greenhill to the Rock/Creek Race Team. Jaclyn lives in Chattanooga and has been running with several of our race team members for years. Here she talks a bit about what motivates her to run, gives a few top finishes from the past, and outlines her projected 2008 race schedule. If you see her at a race, be sure to introduce yourself! Welcome Jaclyn!
Occupation: Pediatric ER Nurse
Favorite Run: Mesa Trail at Chautaqua Park in Co; Prentice Cooper. There really is not a trail I have run that does not contribute to my overall growing passion for trail running. Each trail provides a different beauty that I cannot find many other places in life. So with that said, all trails are
pretty much my favorite.
What I love most about running:
There is a simplicity to trail running that you cannot really get with any other sport. You put your running shoes on, drive, or run to that special trail and go. A few seconds later you realize that all of the stresses and worries you had before are no longer there.
It is just you and the trail.
