Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I recently started running half marathons. I have been athletic all
my life - figure skated seriously as a kid, played lacrosse in
college, lived in a ski town for five years - but I was never much
of a runner so getting to the point where I could run 13 miles with
relative ease was a real accomplishment. Right now I'm training for
number three and hoping to run two this summer.
So here's some more about me: I consider myself honest, curious,
loyal and generally optimistic. People tell me that I have a good
heart. I am lucky to have a wonderfully close family and amazing
friends from all the stages in my life. Those who know me well get
to see my exuberant, silly side - when I'm happy I show it. In
people, I value honesty, open-mindedness, joy and good humor. I'm a
big fan of music - Avett Brothers, Bon Iver, Patty Griffin, Gillian
Welch, Bob Marley, Los Lobos, Mark Knopfler. Not much into jam
bands or classic rock. If I'm not listening to music, I'm listening
to NPR. I watch the PBS Newshour most nights and try to avoid too
much other TV. I would fall in the category of people who work to
live, not live to work. That being said, I love the intellectual
challenges of my job and really enjoy the work I do (health care
As for who/what I'm looking for, a killer smile is at the top of my
list. I'm usually attracted to people who have a positive outlook
on life, who can teach me things I don't know, who are driven, and
who share my love of the outdoors. I'm sure it's a cliche, but I'm
looking for someone who is my friend and teammate, not just my
love. Someone who is willing to always talk things through even
when it's hard. And someone who gives good hugs.

I loved reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle - Barbara Kingsolver's
memoir of her family's experiment in eating locally for a whole
year, also The Road to Coorain - a memoir which had been on my
shelf for 10 years. I just read Night Circus which is full of magic
and mystery. The latest House Beautiful issue is always on the
coffee table and The New Yorker's on my Kindle.
