Totally, Sam! If the boys on the block were playing kickball, I was always right there (and believe it or not, when we were choosing sides, I was never the last one picked). I’ve loved sports for as long as I can remember, in large part, because both of my parents are avid sports fans and encouraged and supported my involvement with athletics. I played soccer when I was little, started dance and acrobatics when I was 4, then gymnastics at age 7. In high school, I got involved with track and field, running hurdles and the 4×400 relay and throwing javelin and shot put (I know… me. Throwing shot put. Good visual, huh?) So along with my passion for writing, you can see how my love for sports made the pursuit of my career a no-brainer!
