Running Fun Questions

Happy Tuesday!

I’ve seen some running-themed questionnaires floating around and I thought I might join in.  I’ve seen this particular one several times, but the most recent was at from wine to weightlifing.

1. Best Run Ever

I feel like every run is the best run ever! Even the terrible ones, I feel good because I finished them =)

But seriously. Disney Princess Half. DISNEY.

2. 3 words to describe my running

Hot. Sweaty. Mess. It doesn’t matter if it’s 90 or below 0.

3. My go-to run outfit

I absolutely love my Lululemon speed shorts. They’re perfect for long runs because they don’t chafe or ride up at all.


I still don’t have a top that I absolutely love, but lately I’ve been running in an Under Armour tank that has UV protection.

4. Quirky habit while running

My nose drips hardcore. So I try not to snot all over everything. It’s gross.

5. Morning, midday, or evening runner

Preferably, morning.  I almost always do my long runs first thing on the weekends.  Unfortunately, because of my work schedule, I can’t run in the morning during the week, so I’m stuck with evening.

6. I won’t run when it’s…

Hot.  If it’s over 80, I’m not happy. Marathon training in the summer was somethin’ awful.

7. Worst injury and how I got over it

I’ve not had an injury recently, luckily! When I was a freshman in high school, I ran a season of cross country and got a stress fracture in my shin. It hurt a lot! Luckily, it didn’t prevent me from swimming, so all it really did was get my out of gym class for a few weeks, which was fine by me, since I though 4+ hours of swimming a day was *plenty* of exercise.

8. I felt most like a badass mother runner when…

I first broke the 20 mile mark.  That felt pretty awesome!

9. My next race is…

Spinx Marathon! After that, I’ve got the Kiawah Half, which should be fun =)

10.  Potential running goals for 2013

I think I would like to get down to a 2:15 half marathon and maybe do another full marathon? I dunno.

    I really like this survey and think I will steal it :). Good luck with Spinx and then Kiawah half, that is coming right up and is close to me, but I don’t think I’m going to do it.

    I am doing the Kiawah 1/2 too! I am also pacing a friend from about 4 – 12 at Sphinx…hopefully I will run into you at one of these races!!

  3. I refer to myself as a hot mess all the time.
    So glad that you do too!
    I am also going to Kiawah, but I may have to walk.
