Jenny’s Camino Run

On February 27th, 2011, Jenny Biondi Anderson began her run of the Camino de Santiago. She started in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port and finished in Santiago de Compestela. Get this;

She ran 506.8 miles in 9 days, 5 hours, and 29 minutes.

Jenny was supported partially by her Mom, Step-Dad and daughter. Her husband back in Virginia watched their other two children and kept up her blog, Jenny’s Journey.

Her run may have set a best time in Ultra Running Speed Record for the Camino, but she admits there is little documentation. Jenny may just start a trend for the distance runners and their desire to turn in the best time. Go, Jenny go!

From Martha Crites:

“For those of you who have walked the Camino and would like to give back: I’ve been asked to pass along that there is still room in the Hospitalero Training as part of the American Pilgrims on the Camino National Gathering. Both the training and the volunteering are wonderful experiences. If this is the right time for you, there is more information at the link below.
Martha”
