Where are you from? Orland Park, IL (Southwest suburbs of Chicago)
How long have you lived in the area? 2.5 years
What are three words your friends would use to describe you? Dorky, profane, hungry
Why do you run? To socialize, to stay fit, to justify my love of potato chips.
Why did you decide to join the Station Pub Run? My friends from the DRG (Doug’s Running Group) were doing it, and I followed them.
What is your favorite thing about the Station Pub Run? Winning all those raffles (jk lol)! For real, it’s all of the friends I’ve made.
Describe the most recent (appropriate 🙂 ) photo you took with your phone: I took a picture of my homemade crispy tofu with broccoli. It’s very sexy for a vegan dish.
What is the best piece of advice you ever received, and who gave it to you? “Just sign up for the full. The half will be too easy.” – Anne Mandeville-Long
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? I’d like to be able to make anyone laugh on command.
Tell us something about yourself that not many people know: I have a phobia of stickers and wet paper. That is why I will never carry a route on a run, unless I take a picture of it with my phone.
What is something you have done recently, or are about to do, that you are proud of? I convinced a group of people to sign up for a 50k in the mountains! Then I did the thing. The convincing part was what made me most proud, though, because I am an introvert.
Please share your favorite quote or slogan: “Dare to be legendary today!!!!!”
Anything else you’d like to share with us?! Thank you to Steph for organizing this wonderful group. It is truly the highlight of my week.
