Your #RUNNOVATIONS Revealed: Contest Winner #2

That Was Then

Pictured above is Jennifer Crane Klemmetson of Mesa, AZ, age 15, 82 pounds and scared to death in the hospital. Jennifer had lost all her muscle and strength and was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis (a form of irritable bowel disease). “I could barely stand up on my own, let alone walk anywhere,” says Jennifer. “I vowed to regain my strength and be healthy. And I did that by getting into the family sport: running.”

This is Runnovation.

Now, nearly eight years later, Jennifer is training for a half marathon and coaching Girls on the Run at a local elementary school. “I am proud of the effort it’s taken to get me here; every mile and early morning has been worth feeling healthy for the first time in my life.”
