Hi, I'm Kinkela! I know it's an odd name but it is a Croatian family name. I am a 26 year old med student at the moment. Before this, I grew up on a horse farm. I was a XC and long distance track runner from high school in rural Ohio through college at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD. I love to run. It keeps me sane and gets me outside up in the trees in this beautiful, crisp fall air. I am also an avid equestrian having ridden Arabian horses all my life. I was Reserve National Champion (2nd) a couple years ago with my horse, Noodle, that I have been riding for 10 years. He is named Noodle because, when he was born, my dad had to hold him up so he could nurse because he couldn't stand on his wobbly noodle legs. We qualified for Nationals this year as well but I sadly cannot attend due to an exam (med student life!). Aside from my competitive sports, I really just love dancing, goofing off, and being outside. My all-time favorite movie is The Princess Bride followed by Deadpool (maximum effort!). My friends have told me that my theme song is Blue (Da Ba Dee) because I have an obnoxious tendency to wear a major amount of blue. If I'm not in blue running clothes, I'm in a Canadian tuxedo. I have a little miniature dachshund named Gwen, short for Guinevere. I thought she needed a name as long as she is. She thinks she needs my Picky bars whenever I pull them out but I simply do not have enough to share.
