5 Things About Me: Sara Sutherland

  1. My first sport was competitive diving. I was not good at it, and I’m thankful there is no “TFRRS” equivalent for divers.
  2. I love to read, and I am always on the lookout for new recommendations. If anyone has any, send them my way! Or if you like to talk about books, we should talk about books! Currently I am really digging Dave Eggers. 
  3. One summer I traveled to rural Panama alone for several weeks. I made friends, got lost innumerable times, and it was awesome.
  4. My family has been in Texas for 8 generations. For some perspective, that dates back to before Texas was Texas! 
  5. When I was getting to know my boyfriend Riley, we texted exclusively in Harry Potter related puns for 3 days.

5 Fast Questions

  1. What actor would play the movie version of you? 1990’s era Meg Ryan 
  2. What did you want to be when you grew up? Haha, I was ambitious: whale trainer/ undercover cop/ Olympic figure skater. 
  3. Favorite post-run drink or snack? Chocolate milk! 
  4. What was your AIM screenname? yoitssara52 
  5. If you had a “walk up” song as you approached the starting line, what would it be? “The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World… so good! 🙂
