1. Ashley absolutely hates to fly, but loves being in airports and airport lounges. “I obviously love traveling, but just the thought of flying makes me sick,” she says.
2. She once got third-degree sunburn while vacationing in the Philippines. “It was so bad that I had blistering and swelling all over my body for almost two weeks. I learned to never fall asleep while island hopping ever again after that!” she says.
3. She runs almost every single day (about 30-35 miles a week), but has no desire to ever run in a race or marathon.
