25 Fun/Interesting/Random Facts

1. In High school I was a power one believes me, I squatted 345, benched 225, and deadlifted 315 at a weight of 146. Numbers I will never forget! I was national runner up two times, and 4th place once. I also have a lot of state records still :)

2. I met my boyfriend Jeff in September of my freshman year (1999). We started dating in January of my senior year, we had been acquaintances all through but then started talking, went on our first "date" and as the say the rest is history. Five years of dating later we are still learning new things about each other.
