What I’m doing with my life
I am definitely in transition right now. I had a long career at
private school here in the city teaching English. I am still at the
school part time counseling and coaching cross country. As it
stands, this will be my last year (by choice). I am considering
several options for next year. Leading the list is renting out my
large flat in Duboce Triangle and then spending perhaps a year of
traveling. (Anybody want to join me?) Another option is to open a
gym with my best friend in the Presidio or the Marina for kids who
are serious about sports. We were both pretty high end athletes--my
friend was a professional baseball player and I was a nationally
ranked runner--so we both know first hand what kind of pressure
these young athletes are under. Whatever I do after this year, I am
looking forward to the challenges and adventures I will face.
I’m really good at
running (see above)
Skiing (I am from Vermont)
Relating to kids (again see above)
NOT being that organized at times (I'm working on it...)
The first things people usually notice about me
I was waiting for a table in a restaurant a few months ago, and
this Russian woman came up to me and said, "I vant to cut out your
eyes and make them into a necklace."
So, I guess my eyes....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Born to Run by Chris McDougall. This is an awesome book about a
Mexican tribe of very reclusive people. Potentially these people
could be the best runners in the world but rather than gaining fame
and fortune, they run simply because they love doing it.
The six things I could never do without
I feel very strongly about the difference between needing and
wanting so there is very little i could do without. So with that
said, let me keep my amazing dog, Luna (see pic in profile) and my
occasional ability to get a massage (I have back issues from all
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what I am going to do next year.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't have a typical Friday night, but I do know that hitting the
bars and clubs is not very high on my list.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was 16, I foolishly tried my older cousin's prom dress on
and then couldn't get it off. (Not my finest moment...)
You should message me if
I sound like someone you want to hang out with and get to know.
