Twenty-four-year-old Jenny Scherer is what you might call an unlikely professional runner. The Wisconsin native was first and foremost a basketball player, even walking onto the hoops team at Division III St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin. She didn’t give track a try until college, but when she did, she made a splash! Jenny went on to set school records and win All-American honors nine times during her collegiate cross country and track career. After graduating in 2010, she became one of the youngest members of the Hansons-Brooks Distance Project, winning her professional debut. She has since left the Hansons team and moved to the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.
As she begins the next phase of her running career living and training in the Twin Cities, Jenny gave Salty Running a glimpse into her running, motivators and more!
