Stephanie Gobler

Stephanie is a 33-year old Christian, triathlete, architect, and runner. She is active in her church, where she enjoys serving coffee and getting to know others through small groups. Originally from a small town in South Georgia, she now lives in an in-town neighborhood in Atlanta. She is active with running groups and loves training with friends for new races.

While most of her musings are related to having never been married and challenges surrounding dating in her 30s, all of life in general is not off-topic.
