Larissa's Questions For Me
1.  How long have you been running and why did you start?  I started running in July 2011.  I was bored and needed a new challenge in my life.  I chose running because it was something I said I would never do.  I thought I would be done after my first 5k, but I was hooked.

2. What is the farthest place that you have traveled to?  Japan

3. Favorite race that you have run?  The Newport Pell Bridge Run

4. Favorite thing to do on a rainy day?  Sleep in

5. If you could meet anyone (dead or alive) who would it be and why?  Janis Joplin.  I love her music, her voice and her attitude.  I would love to sit with her and have a drink and solve the worlds problems.

6. Do you have any pets? What are they? No

7. Craziest thing you have ever done?  I ran with the bulls.  It was in the Azores, which are islands off of Portugual.  It is a smaller version of what they do in Spain, but the bulls were no different, just less people.  The bulls were big and scary and mad.  I am just happy to be able to tell the story.

8. Biggest fear and why?  Bulls, see above.

9. If you won the lotto would you still keep your current job? If not what would you do?  Well, my job is to raise my kids, so yes, I would keep my current job.  I would, however, hire a housekeeper.

10. What was your #1 New Years Resolution? Are you still on track?  My resolution is to run a half marathon.  Mentally I am on track, but I am going through a little PT for my back.  Should hopefully be running again in March and that is plenty of time to get ready for my half, which is in October.  

11. One bad habit you want to break?  I never eat breakfast.  I need to really make that the first thing I do in the morning.  I know I would feel better.
