Hi I am Annie. When life gets too serious, I get silly. I run because I see it as hiking while burning more calories. Running allows me to a space to appreciate nature and gets me closer to the silence I long for. The hours I spend running, give me moments of the romanticize freedom depicted in Into the Wild, both the movie and the book. Key Biscayne, Florida is my happy place because I can run next to the ocean under the most beautiful skies.
I am a vegan; it has been a slow 20 year transition for me. I did it mostly for ethical reasons, although I do embrace a plant based diet. I love eating and cooking. I exercise so I can eat more!
I love music, art, and theatre. And I love my job as a teacher because I get paid to be an artist. It is my goal this life, love, and give as much as possible because for all I know all I got is now.
