We are Team Sugar Runs.
Sugar Runs started in 2014 as a way for Jessica to connect with the running community and share her running journey through social media and blogging. It since has grown into a community of female coaches helping athletes of all abilities achieve their running goals. Here’s a little timeline of how we got started and where we’re at today:

Story behind the name:
Jessica has a massive sweet tooth, and while she’s always hoped that sugar could be a way to fuel her workouts, it has proven to be a less than desirable way to get results so she saves the treats for after her long runs and workouts!
We’re happy you’re here!
