What Sports Star would you most like to meet?
2016 has been the year for meeting the NBA’s MVP’s in the spring I met Steph Curry and a month later Kevin Durant…who did ask what life was like in San Francisco…while I’m not taking credit for Durant’s signing with the Warriors…I did use my subtle powers of persuasion.
What is the hardest thing you have ever done:
I love new challenges whether it was going under 10 hours in an Ironman and racing the championships in Hawaii, running a sub 3 hour Boston Marathon in my 40’s, taking on crossfit, playing Division 1 tennis, or my more recent exploration of yoga. Each has started with finding amazing teachers and community, being humble and learning through failure, enjoying the process, celebrating successes and having the passion and commitment to achieve the goals I have set.
What is the most non traditional job you have had?
During college I worked on Martha’s Vineyard and literally ran from job to job which included shucking oysters at a raw bar, cooking lobsters, night watchman, home construction, lawnmower man and waiter.
