INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT ME:

I have been married to Bob for over 30 years. We have three grown children plus a 13-year-old chocolate lab named Duke, who serves as my chief encouragement officer.

I love food of all kinds, but my favorites are seafood, Mexican and Italian. Bob and I enjoy eating at Italiani's, Abuelo's, and many local steakhouses. Our guilty pleasure is an occasional DQ Blizzard.

I like to say I run so I can eat more, but I also run to stay strong. I enjoy running with the Running Family and Mid-Cities Running Club. I have completed 47 marathons and 17 ultra-marathons ranging from 50k to 100 miles, plus another 25+ races of shorter distances. My current running goal is to stay strong on the hills!

My favorite races:

  • Texas Road - Cowtown Marathon
  • Texas Trail - Rockledge Rumble
  • Overall Road - Chicago Marathon
  • Overall Trail - Pumpkin Holler
  • Adventure race - 81-Mile Badwater Salton Sea which runs from the edge of the Salton Sea across the desert and to the top of Palomar Mountain. I enjoyed the changing conditions, difficult terrain, and the fact it's run as a team of three who must run together all 81 miles in order to have a place in the standings.

I also love to read. Last year, I read 25 books, and I want to read 50 books this year. In addition to the Bible, my current stack of books in progress includes:

  • The Longevity Economy by Joseph F. CoughlinThe Longevity Economy by Joseph F. Coughlin
  • What to Do When Machines Do Everything by Pring, Frank & Roehring
  • Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
  • Factfulness by Hans Rosling
  • Broken Markets by Arnuk & Saluzzi
  • The Compassionate Achiever by Christopher L. Kukk, Ph.D.
  • The Beautiful Brain by Hana Walker-Brown
