Where are you from? According to my mother I am from her and she was traveling during conception so it’s hard to give a geographical location.
How long have you lived in the area? 20 years in Greensboro, 2 years in Chapel Hill.

What is your favorite thing about the Station Pub Run? Running with people who laugh and talk and also run fast for fun.
Describe the most recent (appropriate) photo you took with your phone: It was a bridge in Chicago last weekend. I like bridges. I especially like running bridges. I think it’s cool to run bridges. I go to Cincinnati for work sometimes and I see how many times I can run across the Ohio River into Kentucky and back to Ohio on a run. Yup, I’m a nerd.
What is the best piece of advice you ever received, and who gave it to you? Don’t sweat the small stuff. It was a present under the tree from someone who probably doesn’t like my type A personality.
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? As a teacher, I wish I could be instantly liked by all students.
