5 Things About Me: Jenn Randall

  1. I am a doctor of physical therapy who works predominately with rehabbing runners.
  2. I’m from upstate NY but have lived in Eugene, Oregon for the past 7 years. I moved to Eugene after college, not knowing anyone there, and loved Oregon so much I stayed.
  3. I coach youth cross country and track and field. I’ve even competed in a track race against one of my former athletes.
  4. I have two adorable, large dogs, Cedar and Kai, one of which (Kai) has won multiple dog mile and dog 5k races.
  5. I am newer to the elite racing scene. I ran division 3 at Ithaca College and didn’t emerge into the elite scene until 2020-2021, thanks to fitness and focus I gained during Covid quarantine.

5 Fast Questions

  1. Do you have any superstitions/pre-race rituals? I usually take a day off of running two days before a race. I also eat dark chocolate the night before a race.
  2. What’s your favorite sport (or athlete) to watch, besides running? I was a soccer player before I was a runner. I even took a break from cross country running in college to join the soccer team. I don’t really follow professional soccer that closely, but do enjoy watching soccer, especially the American Women’s National Team.
  3. What’s a show or movie you’ve seen lately that’s worth watching? I’m not a big TV person, but do enjoy reading. A recent book I’ve read that I would recommend is “Up To Speed” by Christine Yu.
  4. What’s a song or podcast that’s currently on your playlist? Here to Forever by Death Cab for Cutie
  5. Do you have any connections to Raleigh or North Carolina? My older sister lived in Raleigh briefly.
