Hello there. Since I’m making my way back home today/tonight I figured it was a good day for some surveys. I was recently tagged in three surveys and, because I’m a survey-junkie, I’m very happily answering them all. Well, I’m taking a few questions from each so I don’t bore you with my life story.
Rebecca tagged me in the Versatile Blogger Survey, Liv in the Four Things Survey and Jamie awarded me the “Real Neat Blog” award. Shucks….making me blush ;) Would love for you to answer some questions in the comments!
Versatile Blogger Survey
1. What is something people might be surprised to learn about you?
I love U.S. history and have known all the presidents and state capitals since I was 2 years old. Oh, and I collect state quarters. Cool kid right here.
2. What is your favorite distance to run?
Favorite race distance: Half marathon
Favorite regular run distance: 5-6 miles.
3. What is your dream race/event?
Is Boston too cliché? Running NYC was pretty much a dream though. But I would also say any destination race on the California coast. I’m in the mood for a race-cation.
Four Things Survey (I feel like I’ve done this before but I can’t find it in my archives)
Four of my favorite foods:
2. Sweet potatoes
3. Nut butter (I’m not picky which nut)
Four things I prefer not to eat:
1. Mashed potatoes
4. Gluten. Kidding (but really…). Sardines.
Four places I’d rather be right now
1. Somewhere sunny and 75
2. Tampa with my family
3. Running on Bayshore
4. Sitting on this beach
Can you tell I miss Florida? SO SOON!
Real Neat Blog Award
1. What has been your biggest success and your biggest challenge?
Deep question, Jamie. And for that I’m going to
steal modify your answer.
Success: Managing to live well on my own. My freshman year of college was rough and it felt like I would never adjust to life away from home and the people and places I loved. Well, it was possible and I’m doing pretty well. I like the sense of independence and figuring things out for myself. While I don’t love change, I’m more confident in my ability to handle it than I was three years ago.
Challenge: To go off the above…change is still hard but my biggest challenge is probably seeing the positive in situations.
2. What does your perfect day look like? (April 25th is void… ;))
That’s seriously my go-to answer for this question. Regardless, it would include: a good, longish run, a post-run nap, home cooked meals for every meal, yoga, a massage, time in the sun (probably napping again), time with family and/or friends, and playing Jeopardy with my family. Oh and winning the lottery. That would be nice.
3. What is your favorite memory?
I’m going to generalize this and combine a bunch of different memories into one: watching Eagles games (every week) with my dad. Football Sundays were the best growing up. Well, they still are the best (how many more days?), but even more fun at home. From screaming and jumping to the swearing and crying, it’s never a dull moment during Eagles games.
Ok, now you know a
little lot more about me :)
