2009 Team: Jane Reneau

Jane McGuire Reneau Email: Website/Blog: Personal Records: * 5k 22:45 at Turkey Trot 5k in Huntsville, AL on November 27, 2008 * 10k 47:45 at UAH 10K in Huntsville, AL on March 1, 2009 * Marathon 3:58:57 at Snickers Marathon Bar Marathon in Albany, GA on March 7, 2009 Brief Bio: Originally from Panama City, FL, I am an Auburn graduate who now works as a Project Coordinator for Jacobs Technology, supporting the Upper Stage Organization within NASA. I began running at the age of 14 and I have loved it ever since. I ran my first half-marathon when I was 16 and my first marathon when I was 23. Since then I have run 19 marathons, traveling all over the United States, and slowly but surely chiseling away at my finishing time. In 2007, I married a man who loves running as much as I do, and together we continue to enjoy the ever-changing adventure that is running. Short and Long Term Goals: Short Term: I would like to qualify for the Boston Marathon (which requires a finishing time of 3:40 until I am 35 years old). I would like to run a 5k in 21:40, and a 10k in 45:00. After these goals are achieved, I will see what is next. Long Term: I would like to run a marathon in all 50 States of the USA. I have 17 down, 33 to go. Community Involvement: My husband and I attend Mayfair Church of Christ where we teach 1st grade Sunday school classes. I am also coaching a team of runners in the No Boundaries 5k program.
