11 questions from Run Find Your Happy Pace…
1) What is your favorite dessert
This has to be this little number from Bakerella. It’s a brownie with a chocolate chip cookie baked in and chocolate frosting on top! Amazing!
2) What is your favorite time of year and why?
The fall or autumn is hands down my favorite. I love when the weather starts to cool off and the leaves start to change. Not to mention, I love Halloween. Oh and all that summer running in the heat makes racing in the fall weather seem like a piece of cake.
3) Dark, milk or white chocolate?
Dark Chocolate, but really I don’t discriminate.
4) How do you get your “sweat on”
I really love to run! But there is nothing like a good ol’ high intensity strength training session.
5) Where is your favorite vacation spot?
The Outer Banks of NC or OBX, as the cool kids say. There is plenty of sun, sand and relaxing.
6) What do you do to stay healthy?
I would love to say that all my running and healthy eating keep me in tip top shape, but I am sick A LOT! I blame that on my boys and their kid germs! I did quit drinking Diet Coke and have been only buying foods with natural ingredients. No artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives for this girl.
7) When did you first start blogging?
January of this year, as part of the Moms Run THIS Town January challenge for change.
8) What was your first post?
A post called Finally Time. You can read it here, it’s
kind of lame though, haha. I tried to summarize what I wanted to blog about, running, family, time management, etc… I for some reason thought I was an “expert” in time management. I must have been smoking crack that day. Ya right! I should have wrote, I want to be an expert, because what I am doing isn’t working! Hahaha!
9) Would you run for cupcakes?
10) If you could meet one person (dead or alive) who would it be?
11) What your favorite song to exercise too?
I’m Sexy and I Know It! Not that I am or think I am. But when I am on the treadmill running and it comes on, I like to pretend the guys lifting weights in front of me are putting on a little skit to the lyrics! You know I am not the only one...
