Athlete Profile: Stephanie

By admin | In Athlete Profiles | on October 19, 2012


Credits for this slide-show goes to my buddy Riki Oshima

Today’s post comes courtesy of Michael H.

I want to wish a very Happy Birthday to a very special person in my life, my wife, my love.

I also want to thank Irene and Francis (my in-laws) for introducing Stephanie into this wonderful world (brownie points with the in-laws)

By now most know Steph, met her in passing or have heard of her in the box. So let’s get to know Steph when she’s out of the box. I figure as part of the series of birthday posts I’ve written for Steph so far, I’d like to lift the skirt up just a little bit and reveal 10 things you should know about my wife. (drum roll…)

10 Things You Should Know About Dr. Yong

  1. When she was in grade school, her dad would always find her asleep in the bathroom while attempting to get ready for school.
  2. During her college days, she juggled 3 jobs so she could save enough to take a trip somewhere overseas every year.
  3. She didn’t learn how to ride a bike until she was 18, and the way she learned, she bought a bike at Target and attempted to ride it home.
  4. She’s on time some times
  5. She once performed a stripper-esque dance on stage in front of a live audience during intermission of a Hollywood Squares taping for a t-shirt.
  6. She once mistook a bottle of shampoo for lotion, and couldn’t figure out why the “lotion” wouldn’t absorb into her skin.
  7. She got bit by the travel bug when she set off on her first month long solo trip to Australia as soon as she was of legal age
  8. She can party with the best of them, sober, but when you give a nice fruity drink with a splash of “spirits”, you might find her dancing up in the go-go booth.
  9. She is very upset with Apple for replacing Google Maps.
  10. She was recently inducted into the Auntie club and replaced her iPhone wallpaper of me with our adorable newborn niece, Leila. I’ve been downgraded to her camera roll.

Love ya!

We got an email from Viv “Muscles” asking for volunteers to help plant trees at From Lot to Spot’s Dominguez Creek site:
This is not a community event; there will be no cameras, no cute kids playing, hoop-la, etc. This is just you doing some real-time digging and planting. Some real labor shiz! But not only will you be “putting your back into it” but you will be
1. Restoring the Dominguez Creek to it’s natural state AND
2. Creating a recreation opportunity for park-poor, underserved neighborhoods in Gardena and Hawthorne.
You will go home that evening knowing you helped create a space that people will enjoy and use for decades to come; that’s pretty awesome I think for a Saturday morning.

    Happy Birthday Steph! I love the 10 facts, you are an incredible person who has experienced so much! Great work with the post Mike!

    My new goal for this Saturday is to make sure a “splash of spirits” ends up in one of Steph’s drinks (with her permission of course). :)

      Happy birthday Steph! Thanks for fixing me up more times than I can count now! I’m in awe of you for doing the triathlon! Conquering your fear like that is amazing. Hopefully I’ll get one of those under my belt one day. Oh, and thanks for reminding me that I’m “not getting any younger!!” 😉
