About knightrunner22:

LOVE to run. 9-time All-American at DIII St. Norbert in De Pere, WI. Now living a dream as a professional runner for the Hansons-Brooks Distance Project in Rochester, Michigan! I am also a huge social media nerd - when I'm not running or lifting weights, I'm probably on Facebook, Twitter, or looking at various running sites (Flotrack, Letsrun, and of course Women Talk Sports!). My family is also a HUGE part of my life - my amazing parents and 2 brothers are my biggest fans and I love them with all my heart! :) My friends/teammates are always there for me too and I love them to death as well! I'm also a huge sports fan - hence, why I joined this site! Just take a look below at all the different sports I'm interested in. Eventually, I hope to go to grad school with a goal of becoming an athletic director or NCAA college conference commissioner. My favorite sports teams are the Packers and the Brewers... and of course the Green Knights! :) One other love of mine is Disney. I have gone to Disney World every year since I was 3 years old! I recently won the Disney 1/2 Marathon, which was an absolute blast! :)

Jenny on the Run

This blog is all about me, Jenny Scherer, & my many adventures in running! I recently graduated from Division III St. Norbert College after having run track & field/cross country for 4 years for the Green Knights, & am now a professional runner for the Hansons-Brooks Distance Project! I pour my heart & soul in to running - it keeps me sane, and the success I have achieved makes all the hard work pay off. Come follow me as I continue to mature as a runner, and a person!

I haven’t written in a while, and I blame that mainly on this ridiculous winter we’re in the midst of. I’d like to say nearing the end of, but when I said that last year, winter went till May. I have never experienced anything quite like...[Read on]
An Attitude of Gratitude via @jenny_scherer22
I recently had the opportunity to go to a conference and listen to a keynote speech by Brian Luke Seaward. Seaward is a highly passionate, intelligent, and captivating speaker, and on this particular day, he addressed coping with change in a stress-filled...[Read on]
Making Strides via @jenny_scherer22
Yeah, I did it– made a little running pun in my blog title. You’re shocked, I know. Seriously though, I am making strides in figuring out life. I guess in a way we are all always making strides through life, since I don’t think anyone h...[Read on]
Three States, One Quick Year via @jenny_scherer22
It was just about exactly a year ago I moved away from Michigan, back to Wisconsin, and then fairly quickly to where I am now, Minnesota. Three different states in a matter of three months. I’ve confused a lot of people trying to tell them where I w...[Read on]
Boston Marathon: United in Running (via @jenny_scherer22)
Not sure I’ve ever had such a roller coaster of a day emotionally in my whole life. I eagerly got up yesterday morning, day off of work, to set up my computer to stream Marathon Monday live– to witness an epic battle between Americans and fore...[Read on]
A New Year (@knightrunner22 blog)
I’m not usually one for great big resolutions, as I think the more grandiose the idea, the more likely you are to fall through on completing it. I am always one for setting both short and long-term goals, however– doing whatever you can to bet...[Read on]
Healthy and Happy (@knightrunner22 blog)
“My coach finally put it out there: “You want to be different, yet you crave to be normal.” It’s true. I didn’t want to be like the other girls. I wanted to be better than them. But I wanted to be one of them.” &...[Read on]
Keep on Dreamin’…(Jenny Scherer blog)
There’s been an awful lot of changes going on, but I like where I am (here in Minneapolis!), and I’m even more excited about where I’m headed. I was fortunate enough to do an interview with Salty Running, an awesome website whose “...[Read on]
Feeling Alive
As I ran an “easy” 8 this morning around a loop at Stony Creek park, I also witnessed my teammates in their first workout of their segment prepping for the Olympic Marathon Trials in Houston, a little more than 10 weeks out from race day. I felt a lit...[Read on]
Jenny Scherer on Prepping for San Jose
I’m about 12 days out from the Rock n’ Roll San Jose half marathon. Training has gone pretty well, gotten some consistent mileage and workouts in, and in that span of time have been very inspired by performances on the track and roads by my fellow Han...[Read on]
