Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love hiking, running, cycling or any other human-powered pursuit!
I've done a little rock climbing. I like it and I'm also afraid of
heights. (Bouldering is great, though!)
I'm a pretty simple person, too. I love to run. I love to cook (I
think I'm pretty good at it). I like interesting conversations. I
like it when I and another person can really talk about something
on a deep level.
I don't really care if you are thin or fat or muscular or whatever.
Just be genuine and interesting. I hope you have some hobby that
you really geek out on.
I generally do not seek out loud, crowded places. I prefer quieter
activities like going for a walk or an art gallery or just talking.
I love a quiet dinner that we cooked together (or I cooked for
you!) with some good beer or cheap wine.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working. Learning new recipes (and perfecting old ones). Training
for a half-marathon. Dreaming of hiking really long distances.
Figuring out the meaning of life. Trying to keep my feet warm. And
searching for those moments when the sunlight filters through the
trees and everything is beautiful and perfectly understandable.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing too many words. Making Buffalo Wings--mine are amazing,
you'll love them, I promise! Describing things very precisely.
Making last-minute plans to go backpacking. Packing (especially
packing cars). Traveling light.

-Taylor Swift (I know...but I love it anyway--guilty pleasure or
guiltiest pleasure?). Classic rock. The Talking Heads, Fleetwood
Mac, Kylie, Madonna, Robyn, Tegan and Sarah, Daft Punk
-I like books about movement and change (East of Eden, Zen and the
Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, and anything about running (Running
with the Buffaloes is a great read). I also like books about
"extremism" (think: John Krakauer)
-Movies: I love almost any period drama! I love big productions
with all sorts of amazing sets and costumes. The Big Lebowski is
probably my favorite movie and the one I've seen the most. Also,
I'm a sucker for a good tear-jerking romance movie. I love
-TV: I don't really watch much TV, but I do like Shark Tank, Game
of Thrones, occasionally a game show like Jeopardy! I also like
watching the NFL, the Olympics and Track & Field/Running (when
it is on)
-I like all food. I like to eat out. I like to cook. I'll try
ANYTHING. Pretty much the only food I don't love is frozen lima
beans and REALLY salty things like certain olives. I love Mexican,
French and Chinese food. I love pizza and burgers. Beer is great.
My favorite meal is probably something along the lines of roasted
chicken with potatoes and cruciferous vegetables.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee, mountains, Tevas, nor'easters, running, water and a sense

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-food. I love cooking. I love eating.
-my next run. running is fun. I think a lot about my training and
what my next big goal is. Currently, that's a half marathon in

certainly anything over 50 miles away is not close. Ideally, we'd
