The Rochester Track Club honored Gwen Jacobson with the Runner of the Year Award! - As you may know, Gwen is pursing her goal of Marathons in all 50 States, but that's not all, she's tackling them at sub-four hours as well! In addition, Gwen volunteers and supports some many others within the running community.
