With perhaps running’s most prestigious race of the year- the Boston Marathon - coming up this weekend, we catch up with Jessie Zapo; one of the International running communities most revered leaders.
Attempting to label Jessie is a seemingly impossible task – the woman is beyond multifaceted. An Art Therapist by trade, Jessie has managed to relay her passion for helping others through art into athletics.
One of the original members of Bridge Runners (@bridgerunners), Jessie went on to co-create Black Roses (@blackrosesnyc), Bkfast Club (@bkfastclub), and is currently leading Girls Run NYC (@girlsrunnyc). Along with these community-based projects, Jessie is currently featured in the Adidas #WhyIRunBoston campaign leading up to her debut at the historic race.
From Bridges to Boston, we cover the groundwork which Jessie has tread to become the undeniable leader she was meant to be.
