For Episode 75 of I’ll Have Another Podcast, I had a wonderful conversation with my friend Jessica Hofheimer. Jessica is the mother of three and she lives on the east coast with her kids and husband Robert. She is a runner, a new swimmer, a pilates instructor, a running coach and so much more.
Jessica went from a 5:36 marathon to a 3:11 marathon over the course of a few years and she recently has overcome a battle with over training. She suffered severe GI distress when she was running really fast times for a long time and finally decided it was time to figure out what was really going on. She worked closely with Tawnee Prazak and used Inside Tracker to get down to the bottom of her issues. She also recently has been overcoming a foot injury and has found great joy in swimming.
In this episode we get into the details of what over training looked like- how looking back she could see that something wasn’t right and what the freedom of being healthy is feeling like now. Jessica is currently teaching pilates to an amazing woman, Andrea Peet, who has ALS and is running her fall half marathon to raise money for Andrea’s foundation.
I loved my conversation with Jessica and I know you will too!

My family loves the 500 Festival Mini Marathon so much and this year we can’t wait to participate in the Mini Mini! The Mini Mini is a timed fun run designed specifically for kids ages 5 – 12. It gives kids with an experience similar to the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon, that’s sized just for them. The race includes course entertainment, massive cheering sections, participant timing, and the coveted mini-mini medal (a smaller replica of the Indy Mini medal). All participants will start and finish at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s famed Yard of Bricks.
There are five different race distances will be offered, ranging from half a mile to 2.5 miles, so participants to select the race that best meets their age and ability.
The race is Sunday, September 17 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway- open to kids ages 5-12 and guardians can pre-register their mini runner for $15 at IndyMini.com. As I’ll Have Another listeners can use the code Another17 to save $3 on your mini-mini registration.
