10 Things About Me

I figured since I have mostly been writing about running, and am still new to the blogging world, that you might want to know a few things about me. So, here are 10 random things about me.

1. I love chocolate, especially dark chocolate. It is only enhanced by pairing with peanut butter. But generally I don’t say no to most desserts.

2. I am still in school — working on my graduate degree. My undergrad was at the University of Delaware, and I attended the University of Minnesota for my Master’s degree. I’m now at the University of California Davis. Yes — I have moved a lot.

3. I grew up in Webster, NY. The thing I miss the most about being in CA is spending lots of time with my family and friends! I also miss all the leaves being so many colors in the fall– although my street is pretty nice.

4. I love beer and wine tasting. I’m spoiled for living in Northern CA with lots of both to choose from.

5. I got married to my husband Ryan in September 2009. He is wonderful and I am so thankful everyday that we are together. 🙂

6. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because everyone gets together to celebrate being thankful for what they have. And eating tasty food. Stuffing is my favorite side dish. Now that I can’t as easily be with my family on Thanksgiving, I also love Christmas because I get to spend time with them. And Ryan’s gets so excited about Christmas, so that also makes it fun.

7. Besides exercising, I love photography. I have mostly used iPhone photos so far on the blog, but hopefully I will get better at bringing out my nicer camera on a regular basis to take some of the photos with that too.

This was actually taken on the iPhone too…but maybe at some point I’ll show you guys some others of my favorites.

8. I’m not usually very good at taking photos of myself, but this is probably the best one I’ve ever taken. I actually really like it.

9. Ryan and I like to do some homebrewing. It is awesome to make a tasty beer yourself, and then be able to share it with friends.

10. I love traveling, and always look forward to seeing new places, whether within the US or outside it. Road trips are SO much fun!


Tell me something about yourself!

    Hi! Just came across your blog and thought I would say hi. I'm also new to the blogging/running world. So jealous you live in CA. I just moved to NJ from CO and I miss it (and its beers!) so much!

    I love these type of posts!!

    I could genuinely live off chocolate, but I absolutely can NOT handle dark chocolate :O

    You look lovely in the picture. Self-portraits are hard. I just keep snapping until something half-decent comes out. Eventually. ha!

    Driving and being in a moving car is one of theee most relaxing feelings or me. Love road trips!

    Hi Kristen (and you even spell it right)! I just found your blog and we sure have a lot in common. I lived in Sac up until 2 years ago (went to UCD for undergrad), I love running and triathlon too and can't think of a better combo than chocolate and peanut butter. I look forward to reading more!
