...aka my marathon-running-partner-in-crime...
PLEASE click over and check it out, it made my heart so warm with friend-love.
So I just want to take a moment to tell you all what this girl means to me.
Brittany is the definition of pure life to me.
She's a genius in the kitchen-- an intuitive chef. A wonderful entertainer, with her own unique sense of style, always able to cook up something creative and delicious in no time. I love heading over to her house for little gatherings, so relaxing and stimulating at the same time.
Brittany makes EVERYONE feel at ease and is probably one of the least judgmental people that I know. She is more interested in learning about you and asking you questions about yourself than she is about talking about herself (even though I love hearing her talk about her life adventures, she always has the best stories.)
She LOVES to learn and I'm really excited that we will both be in school at the same time this fall (although she's attending the brand center and I'm studying anesthesia) because we will be able to relate to each other about what it's like to have our heads buried in books again.
Brittany has a zest for life that you won't find in many other people.
She sees the beauty in everyday life. We can go for a run to a random old grown-over building and both stare at in in awe and imagine what it would be like to go to a dance party there, in the 1880's. We can run through a sketchy neighborhood/awe-inspiring river view/random park together and appreciate more than meets the eye. It's fun to peel back the layers of life with her.
Brittany enjoys pushing herself to new limits and setting new challenges for herself. A girl after my own heart.
She has a natural running gift and she qualified for Boston during our first Marathon in November 2011.
Brittany and I traveled to the 2013 Boston Marathon together and it's difficult to describe how meaningful it was to share that weekend with her (running our first Boston Marathon together, the Runner's World events and party, exploring the city...)
