Our friends over at the Western Mass Distance Project are profiling a different member of their team every day as we get closer to the Boston Marathon. Yesterday’s profile was Jesse Regnier:
If there’s one runner you don’t want to be near as you turn left onto Boylston this Patriot’s Day, it is Jesse “J-Rip” Regnier.
Jesse skates into the 118th running of the BAA event with a marathon PR of 2:49:47 set at the doorstep of Hurricane Sandy on the shores of Cape Cod in October 2012, finishing with what many have dubbed “The Kick Heard Around the World”.
“Despite my training consisting mostly of push-ups, pull-ups, and flexing in the mirror while I say ‘This way to Boston’, I am ready to tear up Heartbreak.”
Push-up, pull-up, tear-up is how J-Rip gets down.
Here’s a little gem from our friends at Level Renner
