MEET THE TEAM
Owner - Jennifer Soisson
Originally a tennis player, Jennifer picked up running to build endurance for long matches. She played tennis in high school and college. While in college, she began working for
Nike Retail and decided to stay with Nike after graduating. She left Nike in 2008 when she met her husband, Scott, and moved to Blair County. She has been running for over 20 years but only participated in her first road race in 2013. Jenn's a proponent of rotating shoes (what she tells her husband to justify her many pairs of shoes!) so she runs in Altra Esclantes and Saucony Kinvaras for the road. For trail, she loves Altra Lone Peaks and La Sportiva Bushidos. She loves helping new runners and running with the various groups in the Altoona area. She lives with her husband, their daughter, and her two stepsons.
She has her RRCA Level 1 Run Coaching Certification.
