Age - 40 (yikes!)
Occupation - PeopleSoft and OBIEE Technology Manager
Favorite Events - I like to watch most sporting events as I can be easily entertained for 2 hours by most anything and like the competition. Personally, I love to run. I started running about 11 years ago when a friend asked if I was interested in doing a half marathon which I had no idea how long a half marathon was at that time. I began running for vanity reasons (weight control primarily) and came to realize it was so much more to me. It is a great stress reliever (even though I still drink), provides social opportunities, gives me something to talk about with other runners, provides another new category of material to watch on Netflix, and I get to go shopping for new “stuff” all the time!
Personal Records - I am not very fast, however I have improved since I started. My personal best was completing a half marathon in 2 hours. I say I really don’t care about time, however I really would love to complete my next half marathon in under 2 hours. It can be 1 hour and 59 minutes and I would be happy.
Other Sports You Compete In - Running is it for me. I gave softball a good run for a few years and then discovered boys and realized I was not all that good.
What are your athletic goals (long term and/or short term) - Being athletic to me is less about the competition and more about overall well-being. My main goal is to stay healthy.
Unknown fact about you - Hmmm… this is a hard one for me. I guess it’s true that most people that are not in my immediate circle don’t know that I am a breast cancer survivor. For some reason I find that I don’t want to share this information out too widely as I don’t’ want it to define who I am and also think I may jinx myself with the whole survivor part.
