Jenny Crain is part of the close knit running community in Wisconsin. In truth, I see those athletes more on the road, in hotel lobbies in Europe, than I do in Madison or
environs, but, it is really fun cheering on a Wisconsin athlete! Jenny was hit by a car while running in Milwaukee last month and still has many challenges in front of her.
USATF did a superb piece on Jenny and suggestions on how to help her. In honor of our readers, we will be making a donation to Jenny’s fund and hope you can to!
