What is at the very top of your bucket list? Finish a half marathon in each of the 50 states. I decided to do this in September 2014. 6 states have been checked off so far.
Why did you choose this charity to support? I’ve always had a soft spot for animals, especially those who don’t have homes, who really don’t have a voice.
What is the main character trait you look for in a potential date? Being outgoing/talkative. I’m naturally quiet and observant, but I’m a chatty Cathy around those who are engaging.
What is the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done? I decided on a whim, with only a week to get travel accommodations in order, to run a half marathon in Virginia. I’m a huge planner, so deciding to do a race, out of the state with minimal planning is very uncharacteristic of me.
What is your most distinctive characteristic? I’m very determined, and it’s been mistaken for stubbornness.
What’s a relationship deal breaker for you? Individuals who have no respect for public service or hospitality workers.
What’s your favorite Pandora channel? Vitamin String Quartet Radio … Never heard of it? Check it out. Your life will be changed. You’re welcome ☺
I’d love to have back all the time I’ve spent … Looking for my keys. Checking the weather. Folding clothes. Curling my hair. Sitting in traffic.
What quality do you most admire in people? Compassion. I admire those who effortlessly hug and console someone who is crying or in apparent distress.
Television is so overrated.
