Her friends and other local athletes began to take notice her progress. They began asking her to help with their training, specifically helping tweak and analyze specific form and effort issues. Additionally, she has become a sort of legend in the ultra running world as, “The Blister Queen”, providing expert blister care and advice whenever and wherever the need arises. Coach Jan also volunteers her time as Race Director for one of the local ultra distance Races, and is known to be one heck of a no-nonsense Crew Leader!
One of her proudest accomplishments, so far, is completing a Transcontinental Run across the US, from Oceanside, CA to Ocean City, MD, during 2016. She completed the 3154 mile journey solo, self supported. (no crew) Coach Jan is the oldest female to ever complete a solo/self supported run, ocean to ocean, across the US, wearing sandals!
