Six Questions

Miss Zippy,, asked and answered these questions and I thought it would be fun to do it here too.

Best Race Experience?  This was hard for me, because there were two and I didn't want to chose between them.  But, since I have to, it was the Newport Pell Bridge Run in November.  This was the race that got me thinking about running and I got to do it with one of my best running friends.  I did not break any records with this one but it was so beautiful!  We ran into the sun coming up and the view was spectacular!

Best Run?  My very best run was the last day of the C25K plan.  I was so lucky to be able to do this with some of my best girlfriends and to top it off, we were in Nantucket having a girls weekend!  It was a beautiful morning and I had worked so hard to get to this point.  I was so happy to be able to celebrate it with people who knew me and knew this was not the same Nicole from 9 weeks earlier.

Best new piece of gear?  Well it is all new to me, since I only started this in July. But I found a company that I love called Women Run.  I love the shirts and the hat that I got from them.  But mostly I love what they stand for.  Check them out, I am sure you will love them too.

Best piece of running advice that you received?  Not to worry about everyone else and just do your own thing.  I am pretty slow still, but that works for me.  Slow and steady all the way!

Most inspirational runner?  As I said in an earlier post, I am lucky to be surrounded by wonderful runners who really support me.  They have all inspired me in some way or another, but Barb, my great friend of 17 years, has inspired me the most.  Her inspiration touched me before I even knew I was a runner and for that I am grateful.  

If you could sum up your year in just a couple words, what would they be?  Well, I guess, short but fun, with some exciting runs coming up for 2012.  

I hope you have as much fun with this as I did and I can't wait to see your answers.  Post them here or your blog and let me know where to look.

Run strong, think big.


  1. Thanks for posting! Is there anything better than combining a race w/ girlfriend time? I don't think so! You are off to a great start--bring on 2012!

  2. These are really fun to read-- glad you did it too! I did the same thing earlier this week. :)
