The Owners/Race Directors
My name is Jen and I am the creator of Dogs Who Jog. I was inspired to start creating events for dogs and their humans due to the fact that I run with my 2 Australian Shepherds. I grew up in Metro Detroit and am sharing life's adventures with my husband, twin boys, and 2 aussies. I graduated from Wayne State with a bachelor's degree in Nutrition and Food Science and am working towards a master's degree in Marketing.
Mike works full-time as a teacher and coaches cross country & track. He graduated from Wayne State University, where he also competed for the Warriors' cross country team. Not only was Mike an accomplished runner at the collegiate level, he went on to find success at the marathon distance by qualifying for the Boston Marathon and competing in the 2014 Boston Marathon. One of Mike's favorite training partners is his Australian Shepherd, Peyton. He rescued her 9 years ago, and they instantly bonded over their shared love of running.
