A while ago (too long – I’m slow) Melissa, a fellow Mizuno groupie, tagged me in her Old School Blogging Survey and I decided I would participate. My buddy Kat, who was also tagged, of course finished her version of the Old School ABCs weeks ago, so I decided it is time to get off my procrastinating butt and get to work. I found both of their surveys really cool because I love learning more about my online blogging buddies.
Hopefully you will feel the same way – here are the ABCs of Me: More than you wanted to know.
A. Attached or Single I have always said I won’t answer this unless someone likes it enough to put a ring on it. (Why am I now picturing Justin Timberlake doing the Beyonce dance?) However, I am sure a dating blog would be WAY more hilarious than a running blog. Just not going there.
B. Best Friend I don’t have tons of friends, but am blessed with a handful of fabulous best buds. Plus I consider my mom one of my best friends too. (Super cheesy. I know.)
C. Cake or Pie Tiramisu is kind of like cake right? Or birthday cake Fro-Yo.
D. Day of Choice Any day I have off work and can go for a nice long run.
E. Essential Item Mizuno Running Wave Creations mean I can marathon train and still have 10 toenails. Sexy!
G. Gummy bears or worms Eat ALL THE CANDY!!!!!
H. Hometown West side of Indianapolis. Moved when I was 22 to escape the snow. Charleston, SC feels like home now, I was meant to be here.
I. Favorite Indulgence In my former days a tub of cream cheese icing with Publix Animal Crackers (trust me they’re the best) dunked straight in, raw Nestle Tollhouse cookie dough, or a Funfetti Cake Batter creation I am ashamed to say I made. Now? – Fro-yo is my happiness, but I do try to limit the amount I eat.
J. January or July I actually have the month of July off, so I love that. However, as a runner I want the January temperatures. It is too dang HOT!
K. Kids I’m a teacher I have had millions, but luckily they are only mine from 7-3. Then I get to send them home.
L. Life isn’t complete without Family, friends, running, good food, beautiful days…
M. Marriage date Do I get to be like some crazy psychic here and predict. At the rate I am going – Oct. 2022.
O. Oranges or Apples I pack an orange in my school lunch every day. Yes, I am 30 and take a lunch box to school. My mom even lets me pack it myself.
P. Phobias Heights. I am a pansy.
Q. Quotes “Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about those who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would most likely be worth it.” ― Harvey MacKay
and a million more…
S. Season of choice SC summers are crazy. Give me fall and spring please.
T. Tag 5 People. My MCM buddies – Beka & Sarah: The NoLa girls – Mindy & Holly, and my newest blogger bud Tyly because I am worried we may have been separated at birth and plan on using this as a test to see.
U. Unknown fact about me I cannot eat certain foods because of consistency issues. They freak me out, like don’t even put them near my plate. Sour cream, pudding, gels, etc.; however, thank heavens frosting and ice cream are all good. Oh and let’s not even talk about cotton balls….AHHH!
V. Vegetable Raw carrots and French cut green beans.
W. Worst habit Still working on that binge eating thing.
X. Xray or Ultrasound Neither! What the heck type of question is that? Heavy breathing, shaking, injured runner nightmares. (4 X-rays this year alone. Yiiieee…)
Y. Your favorite food Singular?!? Everything from the dessert, carb, or cheese category. How could I pick one? I am pretty sure that would be like trying to pick a favorite kid.
Z. Zodiac sign Aries, but I really don’t do that Zodiac stuff.
