What was your first concert?

My first concert was a Smash Mouth concert! We were in Phoenix, Arizona for P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘n Roll Marathon. Both of my in-laws are big runners so my husband and I went with to cheer them on. After the race was a concert for the marathon runners and spectators outside at a nearby park. And just to be clear, I did feel like an “all-star”.

What can you never leave home without?

A glass of water. I always have to have one in my car, my night stand, and within reach at all times.
