Meet Joe and Jenni
Joe and Jenni Canterbury appreciate that Active Southern West Virginia helps to connect our community with healthy activities, making opportunities for exercise more accessible.
Joe has always been athletic, but hadn’t tried running before he signed up for a running program with Active SWV in 2015, and has since completed races ranging in distance from 5k to 50k.
Jenni didn’t consider herself to be athletic, but use to enjoy group exercise classes. Between work and their two children, she found it hard to make it to set classes so she started running with Joe in 2017, focusing on 5k to 10k distances. She first tried stand-up paddle boarding with Active SWV in 2017, and got her own board this past summer. She also helped to bring Active SWV’s Workplace Wellness program to her employer, New River Community and Technical College.
Most recently, Joe and Jenni Canterbury completed the Active SWV Bridge Day 5k.
