Three Robin Hood staffers are running in the ING New York City marathon on Sunday as part of Team Robin Hood. Meet Jessica and support Team Robin Hood.
Robin Hood: How long have you worked at Robin Hood?
Jessica: Almost one year. I joined right after last year’s marathon.
RH: What is your role at Robin Hood?
Jessica: I am part of the development team. I work in Donor Data & Analytics.
RH: How long have you been training?
Jessica: I started training in the middle of August – just about 12 weeks.
RH: Have you ever run a marathon before? If not, what’s the most you’ve run so far?
Jessica: This will be my third marathon; second in NYC!
RH: What has been the hardest part of training?
Jessica: The hardest parts were training through those hot, humid summer days; and then getting a bad cold as soon as cold weather struck, which sidelined me for about a week.
RH: Is anyone coming to cheer you on at the race?
Jessica: Yes! My husband will be out there following me along the course, a bunch of friends will be scattered throughout the five boroughs and some people who live far away will be there in spirit and tracking me online.
