About Me


I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Jen, a 40 something wife to Scott, an airline pilot and  all around great guy, and mom to three amazing teenage boys and 2 rescued wonder pups. I’m a  pastor, writer, runner, and lover of life! God has given me a great story and I’m living it out daily with as much humility and humor as I can muster.

I run Disney whenever possible and have completed over a dozen Run Disney races. I’m a late in life onset, middle of the pack runner who loves longer distances! As that girl who hated to run the mile in PE, I can’t believe that since I started when I was 37 these legs have run thousands of miles. I’ve run over a dozen half marathons and 4 full marathons. Running is my sanity and helps me think in a straight line, stave off depression, and keeps my hereditary obesity, heart disease, and diabetes at bay.

I blog because so many great bloggers have inspired me, and because getting the words out keeps me sane. Glad you’re along for the ride!

If you’d like to contact me about writing projects, possible product reviews or speaking engagements, please email me at jenlefforge@gmail.com . I’d love to talk!

To learn more about my story you can take a listen to this podcast I did with Nicole DeBoom recently. Enjoy! And thanks for reading. http://nicoledeboom.com/podcast/22-jen-lefforge-on-running-for-your-life/

    I work for Fitbug, who manufactures fitness tracker – Fit orb and fitness app – Kiqplan – http://www.kiqplan.com/

    I was wondering if there are any possibilities to discuss content partnership and advertising opportunities on your site.

    Please, let me know if this will be of interest. Hope to hear back from you soon.
