14 Jessica Bauer – How Strength Training and Nutrition Can Up Your Run

Jessica Bauer on Sole Nation with Brook Kreder

I am so psyched to be talking with Jessica Bauer today on the show. We went to high school together, and I’ve been watching her kick ass at running and fitness from afar.

A half marathoner and Farrell’s eXtreme bodyshaping coach, Jessica is getting ready to run her 29th and 30th half marathons, and is thinking about signing up for her second full.

She is a fabulous woman, athlete, mom, and warrior, and I can’t wait for you to listen in to learn about why a half marathon is her perfect race, the value of strength training, and her take on her kids starting in on the sport.
