In the summer of 2010, Jennifer Love found herself nestled in the mossy, bike enthusiast-filled, caffeine-driven, musically inclined, bridgeful food bloggers’ haven that is Portland. An avid runner, cyclist, and health enthusiast, she connects with her zest and passion for life when running with her dog, Jack, in the middle of the woods–surrounded by solitude and quiet.
As a health studies major at a local university, she is in the process of learning about many practices that facilitate healthful living. Among them are the vegan/vegetarian lifestyle, ultramarathon training, chiropractic, massage, yoga, and athleticism. When she isn’t busy in these pursuits, she chooses to lose herself on the trails of Forest Park or deep in the heart of the Columbia Gorge. A life of passion for running brought her through the competitive world of track and cross country through college, and once the stress of competition wore her down, she turned to the trails to awaken herself to a mindful life oriented to community and personal development.
Her love for the outdoors, and sustainable living, has brought her to want to share it with other avid, nature driven enthusiasts. After her first trip with a jar of Trail Butter, Jack, she understood why Jeff and Brad had created the adventure butter for everybody to experience. She is thrilled to be joining forces with the team to collaborate in shared passions of everybody involved in the creation of the Trail Butter mission!
