My 10 Questions

I was tagged by Lisa Runs For Cupcakes to do the Another Mother Runner 10 Question Game.

So here goes!

Best Run Ever:  Well, I went back and forth on this one, but I have to say it was my graduation run form the C25K program.  Not only was it such an accomplishment for me because at times I didn't think it would happen, but it fell on my girls weekend in Nantucket.  It was such a beautiful weekend and I was there with some of the best friends I have who all ran with me.  It was such a fun run that I was able to share with the people who encouraged me to run in the first place.

Three words to describe my running:  peaceful, happy, challenging

My go to run outfit:  I really don't have a specific outfit that I go to. I love so many different things.  I love my Asics, my run like a mother tank and my Women Run tech shirts.

Quirky habit while I am running:  Yeah, right like am going to tell you that.  LOL  I actually play air drums when I am really feeling my groove and a rocking song comes on.

Morning, midday or evening runner?  I prefer midday, but do most of them in the morning because of time.

I won''t run outside when:  I won't run when it is icy or in the dark.

Worst injury and how I got over it:  I have degenerative disc disease and for a while I couldn't even stand up straight let alone run.  PT and tons of core work is what got me back on track.  I still keep up with the core work.

I felt most like a badass mother runner when?  For me, it was the first time I ran 10 miles.  I felt like superman when I was done and when I think about it, I still smile.

My next race is:  The Ocean's Run Half Marathon, this coming Sunday, September 23.  It will be my first half marathon and I am nervous and excited.  I can't wait to put that sticker on my car!

Potential running goals for 2013?   Well, I would really love to do a Rock and Roll half, probably Philly or Providence or both.  Beyond that, not sure.

And I will tag...

If you were already tagged sorry.  And if I didn't tag you, it doesn't mean, I don't want to know your answers.  Feel free to answer them here or give me the link to your post.  I would love to read all of your answers.

Run Strong, Think Big!


  1. This is so cool! Will have to do the same!!

  2. I'm putting mine up later this's fun to read your answers! Can't wait to hear about Sunday- I'll be thinking of you. :)

  3. Great job... midday runs are really good when you can squeeze them in. You aren't tired in the morning and you aren't feeling burnt out by end of day.
