Welcome to the VJ team - Jessica Lemon
Jessica’s obstacle course racing journey started in 2015 when a friend challenged her to her first Spartan race in her hometown of Calgary, Alberta. She has always been an Elite athlete, competing in gymnastics from a young age, but was now looking for a sport that would continue to challenge her both mentally and physically. A podium finish left her hooked and her success in the sport has continued to excel, placing in the Top 20 Elite females at several Spartan World Championships, winning the World team competition for Canada in 2018 and has achieved a multitude of podiums in Canada and the USA over the last 4 years.
When Jessica isn’t training for Spartan, she is also a mom of two children, wife and Emergency Room Nurse. Jessica has proven that moms can train hard, race hard, be successful and still manage a full life outside of the racing world. Her grit, determination and commitment to training make her a fierce competitor.
Being a mom means I have to make every workout count. I always train with purpose. I love challenging my body, working out hard and with intensity.
Jessica has become one of the top female Canadian Spartan athletes and is on the Spartan Global Pro team for 2019
