Something random: I love to sporcle which for those of you who don't know means that I like to play mindless trivia games rather than do my homework. Here is the link in case you want to try: http://www.sporcle.com/ If you want a challenge I suggest you try the "Commonest English Words" game. I have three sisters, here's one of them: http://www.hwsathletics.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=2970&path=wsoc

Why you chose Amherst: Great academic school, with a great running program, the Pioneer Valley is a great place to live and run.
