Personal Information:
Born in Kansas. Grew up in the SF Bay Area. Living in the Sacramento, CA area which I love. Married with two mischievous yet loving kitties. Worked in public service for 26 years and proud of it. Recently retired and working on taking care of myself and finding out who I am after being work-focused for much of my life.

Other Information:
I love to run but have had injuries over the past years so mainly walk, hike, cycle and swim. I was training for my first triathlon when I broke my ankle (getting into a kayak!) I hope to be able to train for one again. I also like being outside, the ocean, the mountains, animals, especially our two kitties, reading, watching movies and TV series, spending time with my good friends.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Sorry to hear about your sister, hope she is doing OK. I hope your BIL gets to run Boston. I don't think a full marathon is on my bucket list, I'll stick to my half marathons. For me, I think about my brother a lot, I do not need to be at the cemetery to do it, but my parents like the connection. So, it's nice to be able to take them there.

    By the grace of Gods and Goddesses, it was only one attempt for me. I am a miracle.
