I rarely do anything by half measures. I ran my first 10K because the idea scared the hell out of me... and it was exhilarating, so now I'm building toward 13.1. Most of the great things I've done in my life were things that freaked me out, and that's why I did them. How else do you know what you're capable of?
I have a degree in French because language has always fascinated me. I have a list of at least four or five more languages I want to learn, and one of my own invention waiting to be written. If you give me half a chance and look the least bit interested, I will talk your ear off about it because I'm a huge nerd. :)
I'm pretty happy watching almost any sport (and playing more than a few of them) as long as I'm doing it with people I like. I also get super into it and competitive... I have been known to yell at the TV during football games. In school I lost my voice more than once cheering on our team.
Also, I am a water balloon tossing champion. I have a trophy to prove it. :)
