What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?

Crickets, and I shared them secretly with my team. They did not know!

Latest movie or book? How to Think Like a Roman Emperor by Donald Robertson.

What’s the best gift you’ve ever received? I take my kids and grandkids on a big “running shoe shop” every year. Last year they gave me a cool stylized picture of a circle of feet in new running shoes. It made me laugh.

If today were your last day, how would you spend it? Visiting family and friends and reminding them of all the ways I see their greatness and their unique gifts to the world.
