In the spring we ran SLC and they had free pictures -- YAA!! I was pretty excited and saw a bunch of cameras on the course, or at least like 3-4 of them. #pose
After searching forever, I was in one picture. lol Can you spot me??
Together now: YAYYYY!
1. What's your favorite type of running shoe?
Right now I love the Saucony Triumph ISOs, on my 3rd pair.
2: Do you run to music?
Yes - It pumps me up! This morning B3 and I blasted Christmas music (PENTATONIX!) and a lady walking her dog was like "Christmas??"
3: Do you run in a gym or outdoors?
Right now mostly treadmill during the week and long run outside.
4: Do you bring a sports drink or water out with you when you run?
Usually just water. And GU.
5: How many miles can you run without breaking?
Breaking = stopping? I'm not sure.
6: Do you prefer long, mid or short distance running?
I like anything over the 1/2 marathon distance the most.
7: How long have you been running?
8: What do you think about when you run?
Usually race day and my goals, and how well I think I could hit them if race day was now.
9: Do you run when you’re emotional?
10: Have you noticed any changes in your life since you started running?
More fit, more confident, more able to down Halloween candy by the bulk, more sane haha
11: Do you stretch?
12: Do you plan your day around your run or your run around your day?
13: Do you run with someone else?
Usually solo, I like focusing on my workout.
14: What motivates you to run?
PRs, enjoying the weather, racing, being able to eat whatev
15: Are you surprised with how well you run?
I wish. lol I missed out on that gene.
16: Do you run marathons/races/both?
The last year and a half I have been most excited about the marathon but I need to focus on the 1/2 sometime because I know I have PRs there awaiting.
17: What’s your best mile time?
I'm am not sure I even have timed a mile. I've always missed track night where they did the mile! I should try this fall.
18: Do you run to keep fit or keep fit to run?
19: Do you prefer to run in heat or in cold?
This one is weird. I prefer to run in cooler temperatures, but I sure don't like the cold. The warm up is one of misery.

Not really. Sometimes it's hard to get out of bed to get on the treadmill tho...
21: Do you ever regret not running?

Yes, Garmin Connect, Daily Mile, Training Peaks

Lots of them: Shalane Flanagan, Kara Goucher, Meb Keflexzighi

Everybody but my mom who I'm still working on. I have this feeling that she'd be fast!

Yes, I hope for many more PRs.

No because I have a little boy. :)

4x unless I'm into marathon training then 5x week
28: What is your biggest running-related dream?
2- BQ and get in to Boston and RUN Boston. I am going to try when my BQ time drops to 3:40, so after two more years and maybe another baby.
3- win a race (maybe Joe Shmo's farm 5k or something unheard of by everyone ...but me)
29: Will you run for the rest of your life or just until you become what you want?
30: What are your favorite exercises to team with running?
CrossFit, or just strength training on my own because I can do that in the garage. Also anything dance-y. I wish I liked cycling more because I love the music part, perhaps I need to give it a better shot.
Okay, your turn.
