What I dread about race day: Race morning- waiting those last few hours before the start

If I was a cartoon character I would be: Sandy Squirrel

If I could have lunch with anyone it would be: My nieces.  They are at such cute ages (7 & 4) and growing so fast.  I have a feeling they’d request the American Girl Doll store for lunch

My hero is: no one person.  I have so many people both alive and deceased that I deeply respect and admire for many different reasons.

If I won the lottery: I’d love to give it all away 

Funniest incident in my life: I have had a few funny accidents like being hit by a sailboat while swimming, running into a tree and knocking myself out, getting bitten by a dog on my bike, and wiping with poison ivy.

Five things I would need to survive, if left alone on a deserted island: Fire starter, knife, rope, clothing and mosquito net

My next vacation will be: My Honeymoon – my husband and I have put it off the last few years, but for our five year anniversary I think we need a real vacation.  I’d love to go to the south island of New Zealand or back to Thailand and China.
