Jen Wygant’s World beyond sport

When traveling, the thing I miss the most is.... my really comfy bed.
On my car is.... a rocket box filled with rollerski equipment, tennis racquets, rollerblades, baseball glove, running shoes, skateboard, Frisbee, bike rack, etc.
My favorite website is....
My favorite place in the world is.... anywhere I have snow and friends and family to be with...especially Minnesota.
If I was not a full-time athlete, I would be.... an Army Nurse and an athlete wishing to be full-time.
I am good at....pretty much anything considered nerdy by most.
I am bad at....stuff that requires the creative part of my brain.
The best things in life are.... skiing, shooting, music and working hard.
My philosophy of life is....if it isn’t challenging and painful it probably isn’t worth doing!
If I could change anything about myself.... I would be more social.
I don’t go anywhere without.... my iPOD.
My favorite dessert is.... ice cream
