Where are you from?  I hail from a small township outside of Cleveland, OH called Bainbridge.

How long have you lived in the area?  ~42 million seconds (it’s legit)

What are three words your friends would use to describe you?  Pain in ass (but in the best way possible).

Why do you run?  I find it calming.

Why did you decide to join the Station Pub Run?  I felt it would be unjust of me to enjoy the appetizers of the fancy night out as merely the pub run’s bartender. So I decided to run (with the weekend Purple Bowl group).

What is your favorite thing about the Station Pub Run?  Makin' that cash.

Describe the most recent (appropriate 🙂 ) photo you took with your phone:  It is a sunny afternoon and we are standing in our front yard. My brother-in law is shading himself with a turquoise umbrella that has a cartoon print of cats around the rim. He is holding porcelain china in his hand and my jawless derpy dachshund is standing on our porch in the background.

What is the best piece of advice you ever received, and who gave it to you?  Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do twice - my father.

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?  Tap dance? maybe?

Tell us something about yourself that not many people know:  When I hear people say, ‘it is what it is,’ I want to smack them in the face. Say that next time you win the lottery.

What is something you have done recently, or are about to do, that you are proud of?  Get a poem published in a children’s journal!

What are three words your friends would use to describe you?  Genuine, loyal, funny.

Why do you run?  Great stress relief from grad school...and I like the feeling of accomplishment.

Why did you decide to join the Station Pub Run?  My friend and labmate Daniela DeCristo was always gushing about Pub Run!

What is your favorite thing about the Station Pub Run?  Steph’s enthusiasm and knowing I can count on a group of friendly faces to be there to run.

Describe the most recent (appropriate ☺) photo you took with your phone:  A picture of a Rosie the Riveter poster that says “Nevertheless she persisted”.

What is the best piece of advice you ever received, and who gave it to you?  “Never half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing” -- Ron Swanson

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 ability to speak/understand all languages.

Tell us something about yourself that not many people know:  I like to bake and considered going to school to be a pastry chef before college.

What is something you have done recently, or are about to do, that you are proud of?  I made my first layered cake! I used Milk Bar’s birthday cake recipe and it was absolutely delicious.

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.

 

 

Virginia Beach, Virginia

Another half marathon in the books! There's nothing like finishing up a race, and then relaxing the rest of the afternoon at the beach. 🙂 The pint cup really knows how to pick a race.

McAfee Knob – Salem, VA

Sometimes the Pint Cup goes on long runs along the Appalachian Trail. Commune with nature, little Pinty!

Plaza del Sol – Madrid, Spain

Continuing its tour through Spain, making friends with fellow statues and inanimate objects.

Glaslough, Ireland

The Pint Cup went house hunting in Ireland - it was looking for something modest, and allowed fellow Pub Runner Chris to check out its new digs! 😉
