First off, can I just say how awesome you all are?!?! I have been slacking in the blogging department and yet I've been nominated for the Liebster Award three times in the last week!
Kristy, Samantha, and Rachel all nominated me! You are all awesome, way to make a girl feel special!
The Liebster Award is an award given to bloggers by other bloggers. It helps to generate attention for new and upcoming bloggers, generally those with 200 followers or less.
Since this is the second time around for me (Lauren nominated me last May here), I thought I would do a modified version and just answer their questions and ask one of my own to all my readers. I think just answering all the questions might end up being super long, so I totally understand if you don't have all day to read my blog! ;)
1. If you could run with anyone,in any place in the world,
where would you run & who would you run with?
With anyone...hmm...Rey & my kids. I would love to run, all of us (which is funny since they don't all run. LOL) somewhere exotic and far away. A beach in another country or a city I've never been to, like London.
2. If you weren't scared, what would you do?
Run a marathon. Someday!...but I'm in no hurry just yet.
3. What has blogging done for you and your life?
It's opened up a world of friends! I started blogging to be able to document my journey to my first half marathon and the runners I have met and befriended ended up being the best part of it all.
4. What is your favorite restaurant?
I do not eat out much, so it would have to be somewhere that I go on vacation...and if you know me, you know I have only vacationed at Disney World lately, so I will have to go with Boma. I LOVE Ethnic food, so anything African or Indian inspired pretty please!
5. What was the hardest race you have run? Why was it hard?
Easy since I just did the PHM and it was definitely the hardest race for me. It was hard because I was in pain. I consider myself pretty mentally strong but when your mind wants to go and your body does not, it's hard!
6. When was the last time someone did something really special for you? What was it?
Rey does special things for me so often, I lose track...but when I came home from Florida, he had painted the bathroom for me and before I was barely in the door he gave me some homemade squash soup to warm me up! <3
7. East coast or West coast?
Midwest. Haha. Actually, I wouldn't CHOOSE Midwest, it's just where I tend to be. Hard choice, East Coast has my Happy Place but West Coast makes me think of sunshine. I haven't been there since I was 13!
8. How would you describe your style?
I don't really have a style? Athletic I guess. I had to laugh the other day because I couldn't find anything but Sparkleskirts and athletic tanks to wear.
9. What accomplishment are you most proud of?
My family. My marriage and my children and the relationships we have forged with each over the years. Definitely my biggest accomplishment.
10. Are you a hugger, hand shaker or high fiver?
I'm a wannabee hugger but I'm shy, so I usually get dorky and end up being a high fiver. If I REALLY like you, you will know b/c I will demand that we get "CHEEK-TO-CHEEK bitch"! (yes, that word is an integral part) You have made the bigtime if I do that. ;)
