Proudest accomplishment: One of my proudest accomplishments is cofounding the youth running non-profit organization, 2nd Recess, with my husband. This program teaches kids ages 4-13 about healthy habits through running, and we have been able to reach out to thousands of kids in San Diego with the goal of making a positive impact towards the fight against childhood obesity.

Favorite rabbit gear and why: I am a big fan of the “booty short” cut, and really like the colors and styles of the rabbit legs.
