ARCHIVES OF JACQUELINE’S TRAINING LOGS

Jacqueline’s own training logs are posted here, from the two peak competition years of 1974 and 1975, including two world record marathons – the first sub 2:45 and first sub 2:40 in women’s running history.   Also, here are the training workouts from 1978, in the year of her 50-mile national championship.  These are just the facts.  The stories appear in her memoir, A Long Time Coming:  Running Through the Women’s Marathon Revolution.
