    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

New Challenges – Half Marathon

Duluth has become the place for new adventures for me. It all started 4 years ago when I came here my freshman year, 8.5 hours from home. After 4 years of new experiences I am still finding myself taking on new challenges up here in the northland.

2 weeks ago I began my training for my first ever half marathon (Whistle Stop Half Marathon)! I thought running was bad when I never did it and now I really don’t like it! Just kidding it isn’t terrible. I’m not sure if it’s the excitement of a new challenge or what but I am kind of enjoying the training. The race is a little over 8 weeks from now and I am trying to run everyday, with a few rest days in there. I have a training schedule, but I’ve actually been running way more than what it says because a few of my friends running it with me are much more experienced than me (aka – they’re in running shape). My girlfriend is running a marathon the week before the Whistle Stop so I’ve been training with her too, so my runs have been longer than what the training schedule calls for.

I’m really looking forward to meeting this new challenge as it has become a mental battle to keep going up and down the hills of Duluth. However, there are a few nice things about running here in the summer; the beautiful views, the cool summer weather, and the vast amount of trails to run on. The struggle will be going back to IL for a few weeks where it’s HOT and HUMID…good conditioning I guess.

Bring on the new experiences!
