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.
