Ultrarunner, mountaineer, wild swimmer and multisport athlete Jennifer Strong McConachie writes about global adventure travel and the endurance lifestyle.
Jennifer grew up running road races and competing in triathlons around the Midwest. She was a competitive swimmer who then walked on to the rowing team at Kansas State University. In college she returned to competing in triathlons, adding in adventure and multidiscipline racing.
After running her first marathon, Jennifer jumped into the world of ultrarunning. This led to doing ultras around the world and competing in multiday stage racing for several years, while also learning mountaineering skills, climbing several of the Seven Summits, and competing in open water swimming endurance events.
A life-long lover of water, Jennifer enjoys the multisport lifestyle today, incorporating as many sports – like kayaking, hiking and stand up paddleboarding – as she can in weekend adventures with her family and husband in and around their hometown of Wichita, Kansas, in the heart of the plains. Now a new mom, she enjoys sharing her love for the outdoors with her children and Siberian husky.
