Jenn Shelton. one bad ass mofo
So you know Jenn Shelton?
Came across her once on the book Born To Run. Strange how one character can fire you up and make you do things you’ve only wanted to try. So who exactly is Jenn Shelton? Aside from the fact that she’s Billy Barnett’s girlfriend in the book, she also belts out poetry from dead beat poets while out on runs. How cool is that?
Pardon me for improper introductions. She’s an ultramarathoner. They’re the shameless freaks who run beyond the 42k’s or the 50k’s. Let me emphasize the “beyond” part. Because ultramarathoners are mutants at best.
Came across this picture on Billy Barnett’s blog but I guess the person who can sum her up best is still Christopher McDougall (see link).
What can I say, I’m a fan. :) Like begets like.
