  1. Ha. Thanks, you are right... time flies. I don't even know what year it is :D (fixed)

  2. so many things to comment on...
    I will be requesting you speak some German to me in AZ.... and TX. I am obsessed with Germany and the fact that you speak their native tongue just bumped you up even higher on the awesome scale!

  3. That's a lot of running for someone with a bum knee, impressed!

  4. You speak German? That's awesome!! :) Over 50 races is amazing and to top it off you did 4 marathons, a 50k and a 50 miler! WOW!!

  5. I used to drive a Mini Cooper - I had a 2003 Cooper S. But after year and two dogs I realized it wasn't very practical and got a RAV4. I probably lost like 3K on that car considering I got it new. But at least it was still new and trendy and I got a v. good trade in value.

    I also used to regularly come in last in my track races in the early years - we had a speedy group (like two 12:00 two miles, and like 7 girls running under 6:00 for the mile). A little discouraging. Glad I didn't give up though! It got better.

  6. You had me at "I'm immune to caffeine"

    Found you through Meaghan @ Miles, Miles, and More Miles :)


I adore comments and I read every single one. Thanks for reading :)
