Jessie Benson

Jessie became interested in distance running after cheering for her older sister at the Chicago marathon. She had never even run a half marathon before she decided to register for the Twin Cities Marathon in 2005. After her first marathon, she quickly caught the running bug. She has now completed a plethora of marathons as she continues on her journey to run a marathon in every state with her husband (with a few different countries thrown in along the way).She has a passion for running and the apparel that goes with it. She is always on the lookout for the right fit in fitness fashion. When she’s not running with the Calhoun Beach Running Club or with her dog Matilda, she’s busy trying out new fitness classes in the Twin Cities. She also loves travel, Ryan Gosling, hoppy beers, and eating Punch Pizza.
