Landon Yeager

"I live in Dallas with my wife Heather, and two children Evelyn
(10) and Isaac (7). Heather and I are both full-time finance
professionals and both enjoy running. We spend most of our
free time managing the chaos of our kids' sporting events and
school activities!"
How did you get into running?"I've been running for about 15 years. I signed up to run my
first half-marathon in 2008 and was hooked immediately. I ran
my first marathon later in the year (Dallas Marathon) and have
run 9 marathons and over 20 half-marathons since 2008."

Half Marathon PR - St. George Half-marathon 2021: 1:23:28
5K PR - Form Follows Fitness 5K 2022 - 18:02
Favorite race"Houston Marathon is currently my favorite, but plan to run
New York City Marathon in 2022 and Boston Marathon in 2023,
so we'll see."
Advice for someone new to running?"Maintain consistency over a long period of time. Avoid
training and nutrition fads and find what works for you."
__What do you like to do outside of running?__"I enjoy cycling, watching kids' sports, and eating at our favorite
local restaurants."

Jodi Jordan

"I have a pretty awesome daughter (Parker, 5) and son (Finn, 3) who are very fun and occasionally well behaved. I am a Data and Marketing Director at Racing Systems, a DFW racing company. My husband, also an athlete, and I spend our time balancing kids' activities, our activities, work and play."How did you get into running?"I started running with a girlfriend, shortly after college. We joined a running group, with the goal of running our first marathon together. I have been running ever since. "Recent performances/PRsMarathon PR - St. George Marathon 2021 - 3:04:16

5K PR - Form Follows Fitness 5K 2022 - 18:27
IRONMAN 70.3 PR - IRONMAN Maine - 5:07:52
Favorite race"Houston - It is very well organized, great crowd support, and just easy!"Advice for someone new to running?"Get a coach, find an accountability buddy, fuel your body properly, protect your sleep and keep races on the calendar so that you stay motivated."__What do you like to do outside of running?__"I swim and cycle in addition and compete in triathlons in addition to running. I also have a passion for nutrition and preparing healthy snacks and meals. I do most of my training in the early morning, so that my activities don't interfere with family life."

Jill Sweress

"I am an (almost) 30-year-old Ohio Native from a small town in the Cleveland area. I attended college at Miami University of Ohio where I received a degree in Sports Management in 2014. I have been down in Dallas since 2016 and used to work for the Dallas Cowboys."How did you get into running?"I got into running in middle school at the suggestion of my father who wanted me to use Cross Country as a way to cross-train for soccer. After that first season, I quickly realized that I was better at just the running portion than soccer itself. I competed all through high school on the varsity squad but chose to take a break in college. When I moved to Columbus in 2015 after college, I realized I missed running and signed up for my first half marathon. And the rest is history."Recent performances/PRsMarathon PR – Houston Marathon 2022: 2:59:46
Half Marathon PR – Unofficial (Houston Marathon second half split): 1:27:07
Official – Irving Half Marathon: 1:28:28
Favorite race"Ah, this is a hard one. I have two really. Houston has been my PR marathon course for 2 years in a row and is such a well-put-together race. BUT Boston is just iconic. It’s so hard to beat the love the city has around the race. And of course, there is no better feeling than finishing on Boylston."Advice for someone new to running?"Consistency is key. It might seem daunting now but I promise if you keep showing up, the results will come. Anything is possible."__What do you like to do outside of running?__"I am a big bookworm. I probably read close to a book a week (add a patio and a perfectly sunny day and I am in heaven). I also enjoy just being outside hanging with the people to who I’m closest to."
