Fun facts

Favorite Silk product: Vanilla almondmilk

Favorite books: The Omnivore’s Dilemma and In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan really opened my eyes to how little we know about what we eat

Secret talent: I don’t have any secret talents, but I LOVE to cook and entertain—I actually went to culinary school for a while!

Hobbies: I’ve run 3 triathlons, 5 half-marathons and 2 full marathons

Goal: Qualify for the Boston Marathon before I’m 30

Favorite memory: Baking apple pies and watching The Golden Girls with my grandmother

Favorite animal: My dogs, Milo and Kangaroo

Biggest fear: Heights make me queasy. But I don’t like to be held back by anything, so somehow I found the courage to conquer that fear by going skydiving twice!

Favorite season: Fall. The leaves changing in the Colorado mountains make for some really beautiful runs.

Best Halloween costume ever: One year I dressed as a beach-goer and my dog had a shark costume. We ran a Halloween race and it looked like Jaws was chasing a swimmer for a few miles.
