When Jennifer isn't running, teaching, biking or being a mom, she is traveling around for her work as the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis. She is the first black woman to be elected a diocesan bishop, and she is also a runner. She has been running since college, when she was on the crew team and had to run to the boat house.
I met Jennifer in 2017 on a shuttle bus for a Oiselle running camp in Pennsylvania and we connected over 80's music, motherhood and running, and we've been friends ever since.
She has beautiful insights on religion and what it means to be an athlete as a way to take care of her body mind and spirit.
Bonus! Here's her running playlist.
