5 Things About Me: Amanda Eccleston

  1. My husband and I bought our first house this spring in Ann Arbor.
  2. When I was little I had pet turtles that I found in our backyard. Their names were Speedy and Gonzales.
  3. 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 :)
  4. My favorite store is Staples. I absolutely love having planners and organizing schedules, but I’m surprisingly messy around the house.
  5. My go-to pre-race dinner is steak and potatoes.

5 Fast Questions

  1. What actor would play the movie version of you? Amy Adams- and yes, primarily because she has red hair
  2. What did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a teacher when I was younger, and I used to line up my stuffed animals on the floor for “school.”
  3. Favorite post-run drink or snack? Cocoa Elite Recovery protein
  4. What was your AIM screenname? I never had an AIM screen name! Does that mean I was a nerd?
  5. If you had a “walk up” song as you approached the starting line, what would it be? “Girl on Fire” by Alicia Keys
