Episode 21: Jill Schumacher IMG_9236

Jill Schumacher is a physician’s assistant from Annapolis, Maryland who recently became a Six Star Finisher after completing the six Abbott World Majors.  Having worked for 7 years to accomplish this goal, she finally has been able to cross this off her bucket list and in this episode she is sharing all about it.  Jill shares how her and her husband met (spoiler: they are Jack & Jill), how she got into each of the Majors, budgeting and saving for each race, her experience at Boston, running with Athletes Serving Athletes, which race was her favorite, and if she plans to run for charity in the future.  Our interview was full of great conversation and I loved learning more about this fierce woman that comes in a small package…for real, she’s 4’11”.  I learned so much from our conversation and it *almost* makes me want to do the World Majors.  Even if your goal isn’t to knock off the Majors, there is so much to take away from this episode and you may be inspired to set your own huge goals.
