I think this is my fist time doing one of these Q&A type posts. I was tagged by June, so I figured what the heck!
Favorite time of the day?
Usually early morning. I usually dread waking up at 4:15 – 4:30 to run, but then thoroughly enjoy the peace and quiet as I run through my neighborhood with just me and the stars.
What is your favorite meal to make?
Make? As in cooking? I don’t enjoy cooking, so I’ll have to say anything that can be made in the crockpot – usually stew, chili and sometimes chicken.
Glass 1/2 full or glass 1/2 empty?
Depends on what’s going on. I am definitely a glass ½ full kinda girl a majority of the time. But, I'll admit that I sometimes get in a funk and the positivity goes out the window.
Last picture taken on your phone?
I used my crappy cell phone to take this pic. It's the view right outside my office. It was such a pretty day today, but the phone didn't really capture that.
If money was no issue how many races would you try to do in a year?
12..one per month all in different parts of the world…and I’d vary the distances - I’d do some 5ks, 10ks, a couple of ½ marathons and a marathon on two.
Car, Truck, Van, or SUV?
SUV..I purchased my 1st American made car after my 1st kiddo was born in 2004. It’s a Chevy and while I am happy it’s continuing to get me where I need to go, I will not buy American again. Too many issues.
Do you take part in any water sports ?
I swim (sort of), but that’s about it. I used to surf in my college and before kids, but heading to the coast seems to get harder between work, training and kids activities. I haven't been on a long board in probably 7 or 8 years. I’ve water skied a few times, but that was in high school. I love to snorkel and would love to take scuba lessons at some point.
If you're walking down the street and find a $100.00 bill what do you do with it?
First, I’d see if anyone around me dropped it and then I might hang out for a bit to see if anyone came back looking for it. If no one claimed it, I might just have to get a cute new running skirt or go to DSW!
Favorite non sports related thing to do?
Hang out with the Hubby & kids or go to the movies. I am a movie junkie, but rarely have time to go anymore!
Have Pets? What kind?
No pets at the moment. We lost our fur baby, Jake, in October. He was with us for almost 14 years. We will be getting a German Shorthair puppy in just a couple of months though.
Last movie you went to a theater to see?
Kids movie – Beauty and the Beast (in 3D)...this is my favorite princess movie, so I didn't mind seeing it again.
Grown-up movie – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I loved the movie! I was a bit skeptical, because I enjoyed the book and really loved the Swedish version of the movie. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved the American version. I think the casting of Noomi Rapace was awesome in the original, but I have to say I think Rooney Mara was spot on in the role! She look and acted more like what I pictured in my head as I was reading the series.
Now....I would like to see anyone who has not posted a Q&A in the past week or so to answer the above questions. And, I am tagging a couple of my fellow Texas runners to do this as well - Tara (Texas Runner Girl), Stephanie (Running with Lumpy), and Laura (Mommy, Run Fast!).
