Pay It Forward – 2014!

Merry Christmas!

I am excited to announce I will be doing Pay It Forward for 2014 again!   I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the past winners:  Dan M, Cathy and Courtney.

If you are interested, I encourage you to apply.  Here are the details:

1.)   Applicants can apply via email to: from December 16th – December 31st 11:59pm CST.  Feel free to be as creative as you want in the email application. (I do accept bribes. I love Chocolate & anything pink.).

2.)    For the Pay it Forward Athlete,  I am looking for athletes that have overcome any type of hardship:  This can include , but not limited to:  illnesses, financial or personal issues.   This is also open to athletes who may not have any hardships but just have not been able to put together a solid year (s) of training due to inconsistency, lack of motivation, lack of focus/structure and need something new and challenging.

3.)    You CAN re-apply if you applied before!

4.)    You need to have at least one “A” race in 2014.  Can be any significant race, but we need to have goals for 2014.  All levels of athletes are fine.

5.)    The coaching will start January 15th, 2014 and last until the end of your “A” race or 12/31/14, whichever one is first.

6.)    You will have to blog about your experience and be an active member of social media (FB or Twitter).

This year, the 2013 Pay It Forward winner, Courtney had a great year finishing with a super Ironman Kentucky race!  Courtney kept a blog – you can find it on my blogroll if you want to read about her experience.

I encourage you all to apply, if interested.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reply to this blog or send me an email.  I will announce the winner before January 5th, 2014.  Looking forward to another great year of paying it forward to our great sport!


  1. An amazing thing to do from an amazing athlete, coach and especially friend and just a damn good woman.

  2. I honestly could not have gotten to the start line without this AMAZING woman, coach, & now friend. Jen will help you achieve a dream if you dare. Wish I could apply again….haha!!

  3. Yay! I will be emailing you soon. Thank you so much for doing this.

  4. As others have said, this is such an awesome idea. Karma speaks for itself.

  5. This is amazing! I will be applying next year. This year is to recover from surgery (need to be able to run again!) and be ready for coaching and more serious work in 2015!
