2013-10-13 15.40.32-2I’m an author and proud Midwesterner. Yes, I mean Flyover Land. I love the middle of the American map, and I’m on a mission to show you why. I explore the people, places and food that make this region great, and report back each week in a Postcard from the Heartland.


  1. This is beautifully written Jane! It’s been a privilege to watch your Emily run these past few years! She will be missed in the OEXC family. When I think about my own daughters experience with XC, it’s very little about the running and ALL about the team support for one another and the friendships she has created. It’s a sport like no other! I’m keeping my fingers crossed my 12 year old will stick with it in high school. I don’t want to stop being that “lunatic parent” 😊 Congrats to both your awesome kids!
