ABOUT RUTH & THOM

How are you and your teammate most alike? We are both pretty headstrong, opinionated and competitive!

How are you and your teammate most different? Thom is able to go with the flow; Ruth takes a while to change directions, and according to Thom is bad at giving directions and using a map.

What do you like to do together? Evening walks around our neighbourhood, hiking, biking, jogging, checking out new places, hanging with our friends around our kitchen island or backyard, eating at food trucks and off the beaten path places.

What is your most memorable moment together? Our most recent memorable moment together was on a snorkeling catamaran trip in Belize 2 years ago.  It was just a perfect, sunny day in a beautiful place with people we just met on the trip. We both were blissfully happy after having seen some cool underwater creatures, eating fresh shrimp ceviche and chips and drinking rum punch.

What is your funniest experience together? We were in a department store and saw a basket of kitchen timers.  We turned all of them to ring at the same time and then ran away
