My elite doppelganger

The other day someone pointed out that I look a bit like Olympian Jenny Simpson.


My first thought was...
Shut the front door, not a chance.


I mean she is after all has an insane set of wheels and always looks like she is flying.

She honestly makes running relaxed and fast look incredibly easy as she so delicately glides across the track on her toes. And, of course her abs are insane. Seriously insane.


I suppose neither of us is a stranger to sporting our signature braids while racing, and it's unlikely that you'll spot either of us actually wearing a top while running. But we may, may have a few similar features. So maybe in some type of parallel like world we could be confused with one another. Maybe.

But if there is anyone who I wouldn't mind being compared to, it would have to be Jenny. After all, she pretty much is a New Balance powerhouse.

If only we had identical leg speed.
Now that would be pretty sweet.

  3. You do look like her, and I love your braid, my hair is too thin to do that. (I have tried)

    I think you are crazy fast and you have amazing abs.

    1. you need to give the braids a try when your hair is wet or, as gross as this sounds, when it is very dirty. my hair is fairly thin as well but when it has a bit of something in it seems to clump together a bit better.

      and thank you ;)

  4. LOVE this! You 2 do look a lot alike :) Wish I could braid my hair like you, but alas, self-french braiding skills are lost on me. Maybe Priscah Jeptoo can be my doppelganger (london marathon winner 2013)... we both have the same wonky stride... :)

  6. that is awesome! I wish I had a an elite runner doppleganger! A coworker said they once saw someone running in their hood that looks like me, that is the closest I've gotten. You should see if she wants to do a photo op with you!

  7. YOU SOOOOOOOOOO do! And I am so jealous that you can be out in public without a top. You are a rock star!

  8. I am not even just saying this but I have totally thought this before and I have even met Jenny Simpson in real life so you definitely have to trust my opinion.

  9. mmm.... I had to look twice at the pics - I didn't realize it was you on the right so...there must be some resemblance. Both girls have amazing running form and a lean, strong and great body :)

  13. That's funny. A lot of people tell Jenny Simpson she looks like the Chicago Runner Girl. She has a very similar humble "naaaah..." response and says, "I'd love to have a world-class blog like hers."
