Jacob has lived in Southeastern Oklahoma for nearly all his life. He began running in 2013 when his sister convinced him to run a 5K. With no previous running experience, the 5K was completed and he decided that was the end of his running career. Fast forward to today and Jacob has completed over 53 total races including 18 half-marathons and 6 full-marathons. The challenge of competing with himself has inspired him to sign up for races and push himself to his limits. He has made many lifelong friends through running when he joined a local running club in his hometown of Ada, OK. Running has been a great way to not only stay in physical shape but also helps clear his mind and has become a favorite way to start out the day. When he isn’t running, Jacob works in the field of Information Technology. He completed his first half-marathon at the Route 66 in 2015 and is happy to be a part of the team representing the event.
