Hi, friends! Happy Friday!
It feels like a survey-type of morning, so here’s a running-themed Q & A that I saw on Julie’s blog awhile back. It was fun to do and definitely motivated me to go for a run today!
Best Run Ever
Easy. Reach the Beach with Team Off Balance. We had such a blast! I would love to relive that 24 hours!
Three Words that Describe My Running
Fun, social, and sporadic.
My Go-To Running Outfit
My go-to running outfit is usually a short sleeve shirt with capris or shorts (depending on the weather). I actually really liked my outfit for the Run for Charlotte this past weekend:
- CS by City Sports Dash Run Top (from my friends at City Sports)
- New Balance running capris
- RealFlex Scream 2.0
- Thick Gobstopper BIC Band
- Timex GPS Watch
Quirky Habit While Running
Morning, Mid-day, or Evening
Any time! I used to be a morning runner, but I’ve started to enjoy late-afternoon/early evening runs.
I Won’t Run Outside When It’s
Snowing. No thanks! I’d rather run on the treadmill.
Worst Injury – And How I Got Over It
Oh, jeez, I’ve had a million—all of which were due to overuse and scoliosis/misaligned hips. When I was training for marathons, I stretched, iced, foam-rolled, and all that jazz, but running less/shorter distances, in general, has been good for my body.
I Felt Most Like a Badass Mother Runner When
I finished (and PRed at) the New York City Marathon after barely training for it (because of injuries and a UC flare). I still can’t believe I survived it. I definitely owe Theodora big time for getting me through it!
Potential Running Goal for 2013
Beat my current 5K PR time! I still can’t believe I got the exact same time last weekend! Hey, I’m consistent, right?
Next Race Is
The ZOOMA Annapolis Half Marathon on June 1st.
