My poor shoes and gaiters! I think they deserve to be retired!

I work as a Mathematical Statistician at the FDA. My husband, Tristan and I live with our 3 Ragdoll cats (Zaboomafoo, Sagwa, PowderPuffGirl) and Bernese Mountain dog (Gilligan).
I am a long distance runner, but go slowly (I have finished last in a few endurance events).
When not at work or running, I spend time hiking in Maryland/Virginia or traveling with Tristan. Most of our trips are geared towards me running a marathon and/or my husband climbing a peak (in fact Tristan is a peak-bagger, which means he plans to summit the high point of every state...this is good because it enables me to run a marathon in every state!).
In 2009, I will be the co-chair of a large statistical conference. This will be my first experience leading such a big event; however, hopefully the perseverance and endurance I have learned while ultra-marathoning will help me succeed.
My goal in life is to become a motivational speaker and coach. At this point I do both freelance...with the optimal emphasis on the word "free".
I hope everyone has the opportunity to live out their dream and break down barriers that stand in one's way whether actual or imagined.
