My name is Jenni Duggan, and I live in Port Orchard with my fiancé and two cats. We are getting married in September of this year!
When I’m not running I’m a high school special education teacher. I am active in my school district union and mentoring new teachers. I love to travel to warm and sunny places for “runcations” and have run races in Hawaii, Michigan, and all up and down the west coast in San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Utah. Although I do not live in Seattle, it is one of my favorite places to run. I also love to do yoga, strength train, and spend time with friends.

I started running 7 years ago with the Couch to 5k app. Before long, I took my training off the treadmill and started running around my neighborhood and in various other spots around Kitsap County. At first I didn’t think about doing races, now I’ve run half marathons, full marathons, many Ragnar Relays, and countless 5, 10, and 15k races. The Seattle Marathon was one of my first half marathons in 2014 and my first full marathon in 2016. This is one of my favorite races of the year!
