I hated it when my parents: Made my sister and I dress alike until the 3rd grade
I would take a trip to: The Final Four
If I could tell my incoming teamates one thing it would be: Make the upper classman have you run 3-minute drills before the first day of practice
20 years from now I'll tell my kids: "Believe it or not, back then Mom was in shape"
Favorite TV show: Friends
Favorite movie: Notting Hill & Dumb and Dumber
Favorite dinner: Anything I can actually make myself because I know how rare that is
Favorite inspirational quote: 'Does it make me a stranger that my best friend was born in a manger?" -- Unknown
When people first meet me, their first impression is: WOW, does she talk?
My pet peeve is: When people stop in a big crowd and force others to walk around them
Favorite story about a teammate: When Loree went running into the ocean in Hawaii, and totally fell from a drop off under the water
I love it when: I wake up at night and realize that it's not time to get up yet
