Hi! I'm Jess O'Connell, a Canadian Olympic runner! I specialize in the 5km event, and have a personal best time of 15:06. I've competed in many international competitions including the Pan Am Games, Commonwealth Games, World Championships, and Olympics, and training for these events has meant I've logged a LOT of miles in my hometown of Calgary! I'd love to show you around my city on foot and/or coach you through a workout on the track. Run with me as I tackle my next goal - qualifying for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics! At the moment I offer two different experiences: 1. A run around on one of my favorite routes around the City of Calgary, highlighting local landmarks. We'll end at a local coffee shop or ice cream store - my treat! 2. Let's do a track workout! I'll take you through a proper Olympian-approved warm-up, complete with form drills and exercises. Then, I'll coach you through a track interval workout, similar to the type of training I do.
