25 Random Things About Me

6. In high school, I was the third fastest senior sprinter in the Washington, D.C. area.
7. I was a Christian college All-American sprinter my senior year.

20. My favorite sport is basketball, followed closely by track.
21. I have googled myself. Yes, it's true, I admit it.
22. I was born in Washington, D.C., in a hospital that doesn't exist anymore.
