difficult questions tag from sweatykid
what was your favorite toy or game to play when you were little?
legos. i built lego houses all. the. time. when i applied to college i wrote a blurb about how i wanted to be an architect because i built lego houses when i was little, so they accepted me into the landscape architecture program.
i also thoroughly enjoyed sidewalk chalk and creating towns/roadways all over our driveway. it helped that we lived in the boonies and had plenty of driveway to draw on.
apparently i should have gone into some sort of civil or architectural career.
if you could achieve any athletic feat, what would it be, and in which sport/event?
running in the olympics! medaling would be nice but just making it to the big dance would probably be sufficient.
which vegetable best embodies your personality, and why?
this was a tough one. i enlisted the help of some online quizzes. quizfarm.com said i was a celery - "you probably have volumized hair, and are great at organizing. you like to show your true side to people, even when they might not know you that well. you always have an optimistic look on the world."
quibblo.com said i was a tomato - "you are a ripe, red wonder. full of flavor and spirit. you would be hard pressed to find someone who didn't like you (except maybe aliens...or people who are allergic). though many people think you are something you are not (a fruit!), they still wanna be just like you. you also go great with salad."
so i guess i either have volumized hair or am great with a salad.
would you rather live somewhere that’s known for being really really cold, or really really hot? why?
hot hot hot. i do not like bulky clothing; it takes up too much space. i would be totally fine w/ wearing a bathing suit and loose top everyday. hopefully that would motivate me to workout more and eat less. of course this would involve living in the caribbean and not having to work.
pizza: if you had to pick one, is yours chicago-style or new york-style, and why? and while we’re at it, what’s on this hypothetical pizza?
new york. i'm not a crusty-person (and josh might divorce me if i said chicago style). sauce+cheese+veggies (but no 'shrooms).

2010 reflection tag by mindy of 13.1 miles to go
1. what are you most fond of accomplishing in 2010?
motivating my little sister to start running! and teaching my stubborn brain how to run for fun (sometimes, not always; competition is still good).
2. what was your favorite race in 2010?
the midnight flight mile. maybe this year i'll be in shape for it and beat the boys!
3. what are your running goals in 2011?
run more than i did in 2010; stay healthy; lose some friggin' weight for realz (or you can check the non-condensed version here)
4. what is your favorite holiday guilty pleasure?
i wouldn't say this is my favorite, but it's what i always seem to end up doing -- overeating :(
5. what is your most embarrassing running moment?
2007 - when my old running partner discovered my dog had eaten a particular section of my tights... while we were stretching after a chilly morning run.
2008 - nothing comes to mind.
2009 - a particular mid-day, side of the road, pit stop.
2010 - knocking on a random (kind of freaky) house out in the country and asking to use their bathroom. seriously, who keeps jars of mystery-substance in their bathroom? it was only embarrassing b/c i was running with other people and had to make them wait.
|seriously, wtf is this?|
yes, i risked my life sneaking a photo in this house for the sake of the blog.
