Fanatic Amanda Jenkins (ocr_queenleo
) knows what it feels like to start over from ground zero. After an ACL reconstruction/meniscus surgery in 2019, Jenkins's training ground to an excruciating low.
For Jenkins, training is life. "I usually refer to my training sessions as 'playtime,'” she says, " Others see how much fun I have and that’s what sucks them into the lifestyle!" When recovery cut Jenkins off from her usual playtimes, she knew that healing would come with a renewed fervor for fitness. One year after her surgery, she ran her first marathon distance. Now, in 2023, she's prepping for a 100 miler. She's definitely back on track.
"I am not afraid to try new things and I’m not afraid to fail. It’s all a part of the process. If I try and fail, I try again. There’s no quit in me." Jenkins powers through all her setbacks with incredible drive, humor, and her MudGear Women's Compression Shorts.
