Well, I am Mizuno Girl.
I run, sort of a lot. I also like to swim, and hang around the gym doing well, gym things.
I’m a Registered Nurse, working in the Emergency Department of my tiny local hospital. It’s a lot of fun, and a lot of drama, but I won’t write much about that here lest I lose my excellent job!
I have spent quite a it of time Overseas….mostly in Africa, some in Central and Latin America. I speak Spanish well, but never mastered any African languages, even Swahili which is beautiful! If you check out the older posts, from 2007 and 2008, there are several about my time in Nigeria, Liberia, Sudan and such.
Because of my time spent overseas, and my religious affiliation… Society of Friends.
I tend to be involved in various charitable activities that I try to write about here. This year’s “biggie” is Operation Christmas Child.
I love to read, and from time to time like to share what I am reading here.
In May 2011, I had surgery to repair my left hip labrum and correct a bony abnormality. This was to make me a better runner, but so far I am not running too terribly much! Follow my journey, and you will see exactly why in the movies Rehab is always shown as a montage. It takes so long.
My Ultimate goal is Comrades Marathon in 2013 and 2014. Join me as I build my base and train for the Ultimate Human Race!
