Fun Facts about Roy

What is something that is considered a luxury, but you don’t think you could live without? Spotify Premium. I love the idea of being simple and camping and going off grid, but the one thing I’ll always want is access to all music. 

What stat about your life would you most like to see? I really nerd out about all the running stats like steps taken, miles traveled, elevation gained.  I’m actually running the Boston Marathon this weekend.  **Update** Roy finished the marathon in 2 hours and 49 minutes averaging 6:28 minutes per mile! Way to go Roy! 

What irrational fear do you have? Nothing irrational, but you know when you’re swimming in a lake or the ocean and you feel like sharks or turtles are swimming around your feet? That or being the center of attention.
