1/ What was your favorite way to move as a kid?
-Riding my bicycle, swimming at the outdoor pool in the summer, going to the beach, playing tennis as I got a little older (my mom taught me to play) and downhill skiing.
-I grew up in Hastings and went to college at SCSU. I moved to Minneapolis when I graduated from college. I always knew I wanted to live in Minneapolis; all my friends were here and I loved the beauty of the lakes and parkways, the diversity, and the freedom to be yourself.
-When I turned fifty, I changed my attitude to “ I get to work out,” instead of I have to work out.” To be strong and healthy, to be able to go to The Firm and do these hard classes with such a fantastic community is not to be taken for granted. I make going to the classes I love a priority. When I fill out my calendar for the week, the classes are the first thing I write down.
