Local Lady We Love, and Where to Meet Her
Meet Cynthia Mawe. Marathon runner, world traveler, and scotch drinker extraordinaire. This Boston-born beauty isn't all looks; with a physics degree and plan to become a meteorologist, she knows how to exercise her brain, too. Her brain's quads are f'ing jacked, bro. She can often be found watching football or hiking fourteeners in her spare time... unless she's behind the bar at Root Down, where she pours a mean drink.
