I consider myself optimistic, ambitious, and easy-going, and think life is too short for worry and stress. My family and friends are the most supportive bunch around, and any time I can spend with them is time well-spent. I am pretty active, and have run almost a dozen half marathons and a couple marathons. I'm not sure many girls will admit to it, but I love breaking a good sweat after a long run, and am always looking for ways to put my endorphins and adrenaline to good use. I've been a swimmer my whole life and am hoping to someday get into the world of triathlons.
I love traveling--both the "hop in the car and drive somewhere new" type and the "jump on a plane to go on an adventure" kind. I grew up in five different states, so I've been lucky to see a handful of different places, but am always looking to travel more. Australia and South Africa are on my international bucket list, along with a list of stateside cities, too.
I love trying new restaurants as well as cooking new things at home, anything with chocolate and peanut butter, will typically order beer over wine, prefer a couple drinks at a bar instead of a club, and will (almost) always try something at least once. I have a huge sweet tooth and think life is better with dessert :)
I'm looking for someone with a warm smile, a sense of humor and a knack for sarcasm, is driven and genuine, can challenge and inspire me, and who will bring out my best self. Any takers?
