RULES:

  • You must link back to the person who nominated you
  • You must answer the 10 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you
  • You must pick 10 bloggers to be nominated for the award
  • You must create 10 questions for your nominees
  • You must go to their blogs and notify the nominees

 

1. What is your favorite race distance?

I think my favorite race distance is the marathon.  I love following a training plan (which I don’t really do for 13.1), the build up to race day, the challenge of 26.2 miles and the feeling of accomplishment crossing the finish line.  There’s just something about the whole experience of the journey of the marathon that I don’t get out of any other race distance.

2. If you have a significant other, how did you two meet?

Jason and I met while we both worked in minor league hockey.  For rival teams.  My game night staff’s locker room was right next to the visiting team’s locker room and we just ended up becoming friends!  (I eventually went to work for the team he worked for and then we both went on to work for their NHL team.)

3. What do you think your biggest accomplishment has been up to this point in your life?

I’d have to say completing my first marathon.  Honestly it’s something I never thought I would do and I really had to work hard for it.  I struggled through that first round of marathon training, but I never gave up  and crossing the finish line and proving to myself that I could do something I never thought I could really opened my eyes to trying a lot of other new things.

4. If you could be known for one thing, what would that be?

Umm…pass?  Just kidding, but I really don’t have an answer for this one.  It’s such an interesting question that I’ve never really thought about.  I’ll keep thinking and get back to you!

5. What is your favorite pizza topping(s)?

I’m kind of a minimalist when it comes to pizza, I really like a plain marinara or margherita (with lots of garlic!), but there is a pizza place near me that makes an awesome salad pizza!

6. Biggest fear?

Jello.  Or Turkeys.  Both just freak the heck out of me!

(And if you think I’m nuts, just go to YouTube and search “wild turkey attack”!)

Turkeys are Friends

Seen on a run! Ahhhh!

7. What is your favorite thing to listen to when running/ working out?

I listen to podcasts more than music when I run, I’ve never really been a big music person.

8. Favorite place to visit?

Disney & Cape Cod

Cape Cod Foods

9. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Probably sushi.

10. What do you love most about the running community?

I love that when I was training for my first race I was able to find the answers to all my (many!) questions on other runner’s blogs.  Reading about other people’s first race experiences made me feel comfortable going into my first race and I hope my blog can do the same for others!

 

 Here are the 10 blogging friends I’m nominating to answer the questions:

  1. Kellie at Will Run for Ears
  2. Jennifer at The Final Forty
  3. Pam and Christine at We Run Disney
  4. Alex at Runs 4 Treats
  5. Nicole at Pink Elephant on Parade
  6. Jenn at Fairest Run of All 
  7. Karla at Run Karla Run
  8. Pam at Wife Mother Runner
  9. Jenn at Healthy Dose of Pixie Dust
  10. Leslie at A Runner’s Shenanigans

 

And here are the 10 questions I’ve chosen – have fun!

  1. If you could run any race in the world what would it be?
  2. What is the best race you’ve run so far?
  3. What is your favorite book?
  4. Favorite TV show?
  5. Is there a skill or talent you wish you had?
  6. Favorite Disney character?
  7. What’s the best job you ever had?
  8. Is there a food you just can’t stand?? 
  9. What’s your favorite, can’t live without piece of running gear?
  10. What’s the one tip you would give to a new runner.

  1. OMG, yes on the turkeys. We had a flock of wild turkeys roaming our neighborhood in Wellesley, and they would chase people. Turkeys have gotten into towns right next to Boston and chase people there.

    • Getting chased by turkeys on a run is a serious fear of mine. I have honestly googled “what to do if chased by wild turkeys” and there is a surprising lack of information on the topic! The best I found out was they don’t like water, so my plan is squirt them with my water bottle and run towards the nearest body of water!

  2. Awwww thanks for the nomination! And yeah, those turkeys, I don’t even like them on my plate for Thanksgiving, let alone out it the wild running after me. But no worries, I’ll save you from the jello! 🙂
