Seven Things About Me:

1. Ever since I was in third grade, my passion for sports was volleyball!  I loved it so much that it became my dream to play for the Olympic team.  Unfortunately that dream crumbled when I found out I had several tumors in my back/on my scapula and they had to remove them along with other bone and muscle.  I still enjoy a good pick-up game, and my serve is still pretty great if I do say so myself 🙂  Now I focus on my running instead!

2. I have lived in 13 states! Minnesota, Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois (2 times), New York, Pennsylvania (4 times), Louisiana, Maryland, Virginia, and Texas.
I always did really well in geography classes!  Haha

3. My favorite place to visit is Costa Rica!  I have been there 9 times, but it has been a while now!  I must plan a trip ASAP!
Here are a few of my fav pics from over the years!

4.  I used to HATE salads!  As in, I would have one small lettuce leaf, and then pile on all the other ingredients.  I am sure they were not really super healthy when I used to eat this this way (circa 2000).  I am so glad I realized that I actually DO like salads, but only when the ingredients are amazing!

5.  We used to have a dog! But sadly he ran away…Once we have a better yard/fence/house, I want another dog.  And one that I can run with would be ideal!
Any advice about running with dogs and which breed is the best is welcome!!!

6. My goal for my 40th birthday is to have completed a half marathon in each state!  5 states down, 45 to go in the next 7 years!  And I am thinking Hawaii for the big 4-0!!

7. If I could have any animals as pets and they would live in harmony in my back yard, I would have an elephant, and a zebra!

    Thanks so much! ❤ I'm terrible at tagging people, but I shall try! 😛

    I used to hate salads too! (I'm so glad that changed…) I'm absolutely terrible at geography though, and only found out where West Virginia was because I ended up going to medical school there (har har). I'm visiting Costa Rica for the first time this October! Super excited! :]

      You are so welcome! Do the best you can! Just know that you bring inspiration 🙂
      Haha, glad you like salads now too!
      Well, better late than never learning where WV is!
      I am jealous you are going to be in Costa Rica! I have not been for over 6 years, and it is breaking my heart a little!

    Aw thank you so much! I’m feeling the love…Annmarie nominated me too 🙂 I played volleyball in high school but never took it further than that level. And I’d love to participate in a race in Hawaii! Go for it…that would be an awesome 40th birthday!!

      Aww another volleyball player! Do you ever still play?
      Yes, I think that Hawaii for my 40th birthday and 50th half is the plan!! 😉

    Thank you for the nomination, I am honored! I completely agree with your salad thought – salads are delicious IF they contain the right ingredients. 🙂 The salad pictures here look fantatsic. After seeing your photos, I really want to plan a trip to Costa Rica…
