Gina Tessmann

Events:  Running since competing as a Bison in X-Country and Track and Field in 2004.  Proudest running accomplishments include winning the MB Full Marathon twice, MB Half Marathon once, completing an Ironman, running the full Manitario trail a couple times, and placing 4th in the National 54km Trail Championships in Kimberly BC last summer at 11 months post-partum.  
Job: Occupational Therapist
Hobbies: Outdoor sports, hiking, cottage time, spending time with family, travelling, adventures with the dog, fishing, waterslides, and eating popcorn.
Family:  I have an awesome husband and am blessed with a 2-year-old and 5-year-old which I sometimes struggle to keep up with! 🤣
Pets: Copper, a 7-year-old lab who may not show enthusiasm but loves running trails and hiking adventures.
Favorite Running Shoes:  Asics for Road Running and Workouts.  Adidas or 361 for Racing.  LaSportiva for the Trails.
What I ate last night:  Venison, quinoa salad, a croissant, and 2 bowls of Captain Crunch cereal for dessert (post 17-mile tempo)… sorry kiddos (I ate their weekend cereal!)  Also, popcorn as a bedtime snack.. always popcorn!  Yum. (Editor’s note: Your last evening’s food was waaaaaay better than ours :))

Gina is doing our 60km run.
