Number one, my dog. She's amazing, epileptic, cuddly, and has run 50 miles with me in one go. I'm obsessed with yurts and camping and backpacking. I love any type of chocolate and going to the movies by myself. I love pushing my limits, in learning, life, running, art, and through other artistic expressions. I am in love with where I live in Arizona and where I am in life. I try to appreciate every moment, even what the struggles teach me, because we only live each moment once.
