Some of my hobbies and interests include reading, running, hiking, camping, rock climbing, archery, counted cross stitch, quilling, and knitting. Not that I have time to do all of them! =) I've completed three marathons since 2004 (Phoenix Rock N Roll Marathon, San Diego Rock N Roll Marathon, and the NYC Marathon), two of which I trianed with American Stroke Association's Train To End Stroke group. I raised over $7000 for them. I plan to run the Philly Marathon in 2008 as well as complete my first duathlon in Philly in 2008.
