Jessica D, Team Captain
Meet our Team Captain, Jess. Her fitness and active lifestyle began at the age of 13 when she joined an All-Star competitive cheerleading team. Her love for being active, performing and competing took off from there. She continued to compete with different teams for over 10 years while coaching teams for 5 years until she tore her left ACL.
After suffering from a torn ACL and 2 surgeries later, she knew her cheerleading career was over and didn’t know what was next. It wasn’t until 2 years later in 2012, that her and bunch of her friends signed up for Tough Mudder in Tahoe. Along with signing up for that she also signed up to do her very first half marathon, NWM SF, and joined a run crew called Running Divas SF.
While training for each of these events, Jess found her love for a new, active life style through running. Currently, she has completed 4 Nike Women's Marathons from SF to DC, and she has been named a 3x Nike Training Club (NTC) SF MVP, as well as NTC Week SF MVP. Needless to say, Jess has been very active in the running community and has been a stronger motivator for others. With this passion and drive for running she has been great leader and has played a vital role in the transition of Running Divas SF to Concrete Runners.
As a member and our Team Captain of Concrete Runners, Jess has really embraced the running and healthy life style community and loves to inspire others to do the same.
