I ate ants once as a snack (true story!); the point being that I will try anything at least once. I do not want to miss out on anything that I might like and only way to find that out is to keep trying different things.
About four years ago I stepped on a treadmill and ended up with the worst shin splints ever.... after walking half a mile! I decided to do something about the way this made me feel. Since that day I have run a couple of marathons, a couple of half marathons, bunch on 10K's. About a year ago I went barefoot, about 2 days after that I decided I love my toes and do not want to loose them! I now run in minimalistic shoes and, I recently finished my first Half marathon in those. (Well this was a while ago, I just finished my first tough mudder)
I like sports but cannot for the life of me remember names of the teams or athletes or the scores. Also, I consistently loose my march madness bracket and end up buying beers for everyone else (in a best case scenario). I love watching movies and TV too but I can never think of the right answers in Trivia.
I have been stared at in the "T" because I thank the driver when I disembark. It bothered me initially but I guess its more of a Midwestern thing (where I spent 6 years) and it will take some time before people here start doing it.
