Episode 186: Jenny Jurek
My guest on the show today is Jenny Jurek – mother of two, outdoor apparel/activewear designer, badass ultra runner (she has 2 100 milers under her belt!), Author of the book “North” and advocate for safe maternal health for women all over the World.
I met Jenny when her and her husband Scott came to Indianapolis and I had the opportunity to host a live podcast recording. Have you ever meet someone who is just the kindest and most easy to talk to person? That’s Jenny Jurek.
In this episode of the podcast Jenny shares with us her career path in the design world and how she landed her dream job working for Patagonia back in the day, how she was inspired by her friend (and past podcast guest Krissy Moehl to run her first ultra. We also talk about her marriage to ultra runner Scott Jurek- how they met and their journey to becoming parents, which included fertility struggles, two miscarriages, one of which was an ectopic pregnancy which lead to the Jurek’s passion and support for the nonprofit “Every Mother Counts.” I had a great time talking with Jenny and I hope you all enjoy our conversation!
Thanks again to Krissy Moehl for introducing me to the Jurek’s!
The Another Mother Runner Podcast is like a best running friend who keeps the conversation going–even on the uphills!
