Running A Family Affair For Jennifer Funk

Soft-Spoken CPA Has Completed 45 Marathons So Far

Thursday, December 18, 2014 - by John Hunt

Running is and has been a family affair for Jennifer Funk for a long time.

It’s not that she wanted to be a runner when she was younger, but her father and three sisters were all involved and she got started as a result of peer pressure from her family.

Jennifer will celebrate her 45th birthday on January 1.  She played a lot of sports as a student at Maryville High School, but never ran before graduating in 1988.

Learn more about how Jennifer has come to run 45 MARATHONS!!!

This is the 43rd in a series of runners in the Chattanooga area.  If you know someone who might make an interesting story, email John Hunt at
