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. I've heard the Rock and Roll one is a lot of fun. My half in April is a women's only half in Naperville, IL which is where I live. It's nice since I can just walk to it. They offered discounts and over 1000 women from 20 states signed up in the first 20 minutes. Most of the marketing was via social media to save money on marketing and offer discounts instead. I also have a St. Paddy's Day 5k also in Naperville and 2 of my great-nieces will run it too which makes it a fun family event. You are so right about running buddies making those long runs bearable! Run in good health!
