Kelsey Keverline

Where are you from?  Pittsburgh, PA

How long have you lived in the area?  9 Months!

What are three words your friends would use to describe you?  Honest (sometimes brutally), enthusiastic, determined.

Why do you run?  Running gives me something to focus on outside of grad school which is nice.  I also love Carrboro and running gives me an excuse to explore.

Why did you decide to join the Station Pub Run?  I was encouraged by other med students.  I had never run before joining Station Pub Run and I love it!

What is your favorite thing about the Station Pub Run?  Med school can be pretty socially isolating and I love meeting people outside of school.

Describe the most recent (appropriate 🙂 ) photo you took with your phone:  My boyfriend and I went hiking at Hanging Rock.  He brought along a water filtration system for a three mile hike so I took a picture of him filling up his fancy filtering water bottle in the stream to make fun of him.

What is the best piece of advice you ever received, and who gave it to you?  “If there’s only one person in your life who’s a jerk, they are probably a jerk.  If everyone in your life is a jerk, you are probably a jerk.”  - I don’t remember who told me this

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 would be really good at skiing.  Skiing looks fun but it’s expensive and hard to get to a place where you can do stuff without fear of death.

Tell us something about yourself that not many people know:  Not many people in Pub Run know that I do stand up comedy and perform with Eyes Up Here comedy!

What is something you have done recently, or are about to do, that you are proud of?  I ran my first half marathon!

Please share your favorite quote or slogan:  “Don’t half ass two things.  Whole ass one thing”

Bonner Saylor

Where are you from?  Born in Texas, claim Aiken, SC as my hometown, and most recently spent six years in south FL.

How long have you lived in the area?  2 years

What are three words your friends would use to describe you?  Determined, loyal

Why do you run?  To keep my family from killing me! I started running in high school when I joined the cross country team. According to my mom, I became a much more pleasant teenager when I did. As an adult, I have been ordered on runs by my spouse when he’s had enough of my attitude. While I love the challenge of bettering my running each year, I really keep at it because of the balance it brings my mental state.

Why did you decide to join the Station Pub Run?  When I first moved to town I went to the Fleet Feet runs on Wednesdays because I was home all day with my then 2.5 year old on Wednesdays and I needed the mental release. Then the faces I was starting to recognize stopped going, so it wasn’t fun anymore. I had been on a run with SPR while on a scouting trip before moving here, and decided to join the cool kids. 

What is your favorite thing about the Station Pub Run?  The people. And the beer. And Steph’s amazing emails!

Describe the most recent (appropriate ☺) photo you took with your phone:  I do (almost) daily Christmas countdown pictures of my son to share the excitement of the season with a small child with out of town family. The current one is of his and my feet showing off our matching glow in the dark Christmas light Toms!

What is the best piece of advice you ever received, and who gave it to you?  “Don’t go borrowing trouble (or worry) from tomorrow.” - my mom

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?  Either the ability to fly a plane or sail a boat. I have neither time nor money to learn either, but if I just knew and didn’t have to pay for it I’d never be home.

Tell us something about yourself that not many people know:  My favorite non-technical job ever was working for the county library.

What is something you have done recently, or are about to do, that you are proud of?  Does June count as recently? I’m going with it anyway! We took a family vacation to Vermont in June, and the place we stayed had a mini triathlon. I entered and finished, even though the lake had massive amounts of chop and I wanted to give up not even halfway through the swim. My Achilles has hated me ever since, but that ridiculous rubber duck keychain was totally worth it!

Please share your favorite quote or slogan:  Same as above. It’s such a simple concept, yet so difficult to consistently follow through with. I find myself thinking “that’s just borrowing worry” quite often, and it’s usually coming out of my mouth at some point when being asked my opinion, so it’s clearly greatly impacted how I approach life.
