With that said, I'm a DC local who is much more of a Midwesterner at heart (Chicago and St. Louis > DC). While I grew up and went to school here, I definitely appreciate the slower pace of the South and Midwest. I'm also a huge Midwest sports fan, and one of my favorite things is watching my Blues, Rams, and Wisconsin Badgers.
I'm also a big fan of craft beers, wineries, and good coffee. Though in the interest of not being late for work, I am guilty of making my coffee five days a week with a Keurig. I'm still in search of a workplace that has a French press.
Finally, I try to stay as active as possible and am currently training for the Chicago Marathon in October. Every weekend when I'm running 10-plus miles I tell myself that this is going to be my last one, but somehow I know that I'll want to do another one (Portland) in 2015.
