FitLabPGH Features 12:20 Cashmere Kosko

FitLabPGH is a podcast about movement and movement opportunities in the Pittsburgh, PA area.  Once a week we also highlight a FitLabPGH mover…someone who understands that movement is a lifestyle…not just an activity.  The questions are lightly edited to allow for easy readability.  Click FitLabPGH Features for more info if you want to be featured/know someone who should be featured.

Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area? If so, why are you still here? Yes, but my blood runs Russian blue

What are your three favorite movement activities in the Pittsburgh area? Running through the house when the windows are open, Trying to escape through open doors, Sleeping hard on any available surface

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? The only time I leave the house I end up having these very odd dreams and then I wake up with my arm shaved.

What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy. My roommate Roxy’s food
