   win  Jackie at Trials


A Mother, teacher, and runner from Saint Charles, Missouri.  Jackie attended Francis Howell North High School where she was a multiple time all state and state championships runner.  She, then went on to run for the University of Missouri from 2001-2003/ and Lindenwood University in 2004.  After pushing, training, and racing  for years Jackie took some time off.  At the age of 25, she realized she missed running and the structure and the friends that came with it.  She, decided to move up to tackle the marathon.  As the training grew and the times dropped, Jackie and her coach, Sheldon Webster, started to have a dream of the Olympic Marathon Trials.  After several near misses, Jackie qualified for the Olympic trials on the last date you could at , California International Marathon, on December 4, 2011 in 2:44:32.  It was so exhilarating to finally realize her dream!  She ran the Olympic Trials in Houston, Texas on January 14, 2012 just 6 weeks later in 2:44:22 placing 70th.  Jackie rode the wave of success all spring, with wins and course records at her hometown, Go! Marathon (PR 2:42) and 2 weeks later at the, Christie Clinic Marathon (2:44).  After having a second child in 2013, Jackie came back strong and fast to her love of the Marathon finishing within a minute of qualifying again for the 2016 Olympic Marathon Trials.  She recently won in impressive fashion the 2016 MO Cowbell half marathon.
