Jessica Chichester Has Run 11 Marathons, And She's Not Planning On Stopping Anytime Soon
Jessica Chichester comes from a family of runners. Her sister is the reason she got into running, and her brother is her coach. She ran in college at the University of Albany and now runs with the Dashing Whippets in New York City. Chichester has completed a whopping 11 marathons, and, on most days, she runs to and from the office where she works as a nurse practitioner.
Despite all of that, she didn't expect to place fifth overall in the 2018 Boston Marathon. Months later, she still can’t believe it happened. Chichester attributes part of her success to her focus on nutrition. She uses Kettlebell Kitchen meals to help fuel her long runs and cross-training sessions. We talked to Chichester about her passion for running, how she fits the sport into her life, and her plans for the future.
