  • Jeff and I started running in earnest in 2012, starting with our first 5K together in September. After that first one, we ran several more together including a 5k Turkey Trot with my family Thanksgiving of 2012, a 10k in December of 2012, and the ever-fun Color Run 5K in February of 2013. In March o [...]
  • In 2010, Jennie and Jeff headed to the sea with Jeff's family to cruise around the Bahamas!
