I like the notion - or at least the aspiration - of improvement. Running is a very tangible way to experience that. It's kind of cool to look back and realize that you're demonstrably better at something than you were last week, last month, last year or whatever.
Anyways, to return from that philosophical tangent, I'm a bit of a nerd, kind of goofy but generally laid back and open for adventure.

Making and consuming crepes.
It really used to bother me as a kid when my moms friends would ooh and ahh over them but I grew out of that. Now I'm just thankful that they do a really good job at keeping debris out of my eyeballs.
I'm easily amused but have an appreciation for truly good flicks as well. Tombstone is a hell of a movie.
Oh, and Stick It has a special place in my heart...
A Tribe Called Quest
Biggie (although I'm west coast for life)
The White Stripes
The Black Keys
And a fair amount of really embarrassing pop music...
Beer is a food, right?
My mad counting skills
I've also been pondering what story (or, knock on wood, stories) to tell Alex Trebek after the first commercial break on Jeopardy when he briefly interviews each of the contestants. Maybe a really awkward/inappropriate joke? Make up a story about saving a busload of nuns from annihilation at the hands of an international gang of ninjas? Just say, "I'd prefer not to" and refuse to speak until the game resumes?
I'm open to suggestions...
Or if you have any good travel recommendations.
Or if you want to share a joke. Very few people have shared a joke with me, however, which makes me think that people don't read this far down in a person's profile. Or that the people who do read this far down don't know any good jokes. I suppose if one were to make a Venn Diagram, there would be two circles that don't overlap - one for people who read my profile and another who know jokes.
So it goes...
