5 Things About Me: Amanda Eccleston
- My husband and I bought our first house this spring in Ann Arbor.
- When I was little I had pet turtles that I found in our backyard. Their names were Speedy and Gonzales.
- I have a huge sweet tooth. I once ate two pints of Ben and Jerry’s in one sitting (this was before I started being serious about running and my diet :)
- My favorite store is Staples. I absolutely love having planners and organizing schedules, but I’m surprisingly messy around the house.
- My go-to pre-race dinner is steak and potatoes.
