Jennifer Hansen has such a powerful story of overcoming much loss and having victory over it, choosing to find the positive in her circumstances and find joy in the journey. The episode is a continuation of the 2020 Boston Marathon qualifying mama conversations. 2020 was a year like no other, but Jen Hansen had some devastation in 2019 leading up to the unpredictable year.
I’m thankful she was willing to share with us some of that time and how she made it through. I think it will be an encouragement for you today, as it was for me. I found myself getting emotional right along with her as she poured out her heart! Running has become what Jen chooses to do with her free time. The run is her place to pray, reflect, plan her day, even socialize, and just become a better version of herself.
- How she overcame the doubt in herself to qualify for the 2020 Boston Marathon after not being accepted into the 2019 race.
- “Jenny girl, it’s what you do.” What that statement means and how it affected her training.
- What has gotten Jen through two years of dealing with loss and her encouragement for you if you are experiencing any right now as well.
