A lady of art and adventures, navigating life with goofball Great Dane in tow.
I've been lucky enough to experience some wild and adventurous things.
I've hung out with stormtroopers in downtown.
I conquered two half marathons in one year.
I skipped the 5k, 10k, etc. and just went all out to a half marathon. My first, in 2012, was the Blue Ridge Half Marathon, dubbed the Toughest Road Marathon. 7 months later, I did my second one, the Long Island - Diva Half Marathon.
I learned a lot from both, including how important cross-training is. Due to an injury in the second one, I had to play it safe and work my body back up. I've walked several 10Ks and 5Ks since then, but I'm not back to running a course, yet. Maybe next year I'll get to run that full 5K!
I can tell you how scary it is to run with bulls.
In 2013, I ran the The Great Bull Run in Petersburg, Virginia. Yes, you read that correctly. It was the first bull run to happen outside of Spain. I'm proud to say that I was one of the first people to Run with the Bulls...in America.
I've gone rock climbing off the coast of Maine. Prior to this, I had only climbed a rock wall once and apparently did some rock climbing as a kid. So, I guess you could say that was my first time...again? My brother and I hung ourselves off the rocky coast of Acadia National Park in Maine. And I would totally do it again!
I've been to the original A Christmas Story house and it's spectacular! - It's located in Cleveland, OH, where I visit family at least once a year. It may have been closed when I went, but that didn't stop me from taking a million crazy photos all around it!
