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, I’m an Infection Preventionist. I work at our very own Level One Trauma Center. My main job is to prevent Surgical Site Infections. It’s a lot of fun!
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.
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! In 2014 I suddenly ruptured a disc in my lower back. I was super blessed to find the right surgeon and am now returning to running. 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! Join me as I build my base and train for the Ultimate Human Race!
