Jenny Spangler Racing reached a first ever milestone in December of 2011, when team member Kate DeProsperis became the first JSR runner to qualify for the US Olympic Trials marathon. The 2012 trials will be held on January 14, 2012, in Houston, Texas. Kate ran a blazing 2:45:16 PR at the California International Marathon (CIM) in Sacramento, California, on December 4. Kate is only one of two women from Illinois to qualify for the Olympic Trials marathon. She will proudly represent her home state and JSR next month in Houston, and becomes Jenny Spangler's first coached athlete to achieve this remarkable accomplishment.
