Where are you from? The suburbs of Seattle (but I lived in actual Seattle after college so I have some street cred).

How long have you lived in the area? I moved here to be closer to family and didn’t expect to stick around long, but here I am settled in 5 years later.

What are three words your friends would use to describe you? I asked and got 4… opinionated, creative, enthusiastic? and fun.

Why do you run? For the pub run perks, duh.

Why did you decide to join the Station Pub Run? Ed Billings kept talking about how great it was, and I finally tried it out and realized he was SO right!

What is your favorite thing about the Station Pub Run? Everyone is so social and welcoming, even if you don’t know anyone when you show up you’ll know folks by the end.

Describe the most recent (appropriate 🙂 ) photo you took with your phone: My pup is doing PT for a bum ACL, so most of my photos are of her enjoying time using a water treadmill.

What is the best piece of advice you ever received, and who gave it to you? “Are you crying? Why? It’ll be fine.” I blew up my car in college and was talking to my dad on the phone and started crying. He could not figure why I was so upset because it was so obvious to him that everything would be fine. It was true then and it’s true for most things in life.

If you could have any talent or skill in the entire world, without needing to practice and money was no limitation, what would it be? The talent of NOT procrastinating, think of all the things I’d get done!

Tell us something about yourself that not many people know: I lettered 10 times in high school and my long last name looked ridiculous on my little letterman jacket.

What is something you have done recently, or are about to do, that you are proud of? This summer I’m officiating the wedding of 2 close friends, I’ve promised to keep the cuss words to a minimum.

Please share your favorite quote or slogan: “There is always something to be happy about.”

Anything else you’d like to share with us?! Buy Pub Run stickers, someone really great designed them. 😉
