Jordan Bohnlein was a late-comer to the running world. He grew up in a small town in Ohio where soccer was his primary focus through high school. He didn’t become a regular runner until he was 20, with his organized soccer-playing days behind him, and his sister recruited him and his siblings to run a half marathon. Since then it has become an essential part of his life, helping to keep him happy and sane.
Jordan went to THE Ohio State University, where he received a Bachelors in English Literature and a Masters in Education. During a summer break when Jordan was 21, he went to work in Denali National Park in Alaska, and that sealed his fate as a lover of outdoor adventures. The most recent pursuit is white water rafting.
He moved to Bend to work in wilderness therapy, and afterwards started subbing in Bend-La Pine Schools. He left for a year to teach middle school and high school English in the Dominican Republic. This will be his fourth year back at Mountain View teaching English and coaching cross country.
