Runners This and That

Found this on my Foodie Pen Pal Lish’s site and if you don’t know by now I’m a sucker for Q&A.  I find it calms me down to think of my blessings and what brings me joy when I’m in the midst of chaos. I promise I’ll get back to profound posting soon.

What is your favorite type of crossing training?  

Get me in that pool for some laps!

The birds in the air. The crunch of leaves. I listen to music to pump me before a big race and it always includes California Dreamin’ by the Mamas and the Papas.

What brand shoes do you wear when you run?
Asics or Brooks. I’m a neutral girl. I’ve given Newtons a try-no go. I wear Nike frees for speed work, which is fun.

I used to be morning but now I’m relishing in my bible study in the am so I’m running in the evenings on weekdays and mornings on weekends. Fridays are sacred off days unless I need a “lappy hour”.

Sigh. Don’t have one of those….
