Little-known fact about Juliette
"I've run a marathon (I'm one and done!) and several half marathons, but now prefer a Pure Barre Workout; I am not able to donate blood because of my study abroad junior year of college. I studied in Stirling, Scotland in 2000, when mad cow disease was prevalent, and because I was in the UK longer than 3 months in that time period, I cannot donate blood, unfortunately!"
