Best running experience: I have had great experiences for all of those middle-of-the-night runs during Cascade Lakes Relay and Hood to Coast! They’ve often been freezing but I have loved the smells, the solitude and the sounds of nature as I ran as fast as I could for that leg. I’ve also made peace with some hills that I used to run away from, and now count the Wisteria Rd climb near my house as one of my favorite workouts!

Passions outside of running: Cider, chocolate, my dogs, reading, watching old movies (it’s impossible to not watch Godfather I & II or Shawshank Redemption when on TV), baking a.k.a. attempting to perfect my peach cobbler/banana bread/soda bread/blueberry muffins … it will happen, I know it. BTW those are four separate baked goods, not one baked dish 🙂

Favorite post-run meal (the more details the better!): A good cider; current favorite is Peach County by Ciderboys. Then either a black bean/quinoa/sweet potato type burger, or some good nachos, or grilled fish tacos or ye olde grilled cheese and tomato soup. Followed by several pieces of good dark chocolate or piece of cobbler or pie. Or all of them.
