11 things....

3 miles today...done!


I was tagged by Adena over at She said I need a goal and Michelle over at Running with Attitude

For what, you say?  For 11 random things, of course.  I'm probably one of the last people that has done this.  Wow - I'm not sure I can think of eleven but here goes:

Rules first are:

1.  Post these rules.
2.  You must post 11 random things about yourself.
3.  Answer the questions set for you in their post.
4.  Create 11 new questions for people you tag to answer.
5.  Go to their blog and tell them you've tagged them.
6.  No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this.  You legitimately have to tag 11 people!

Here's my random stuff:

1)  I like to run - imagine that.
2)  While I love the change of season, I wish I lived somewhere warm all year.
3)  I rarely vote except for the Presidential race.
4)  My favorite food is Mediterranean.
6)  I got married at 23 and I'm still married(20 years this year) - rare, I know.
7)  I have never rented an apartment/home(except in college); home ownership - the way to go!
8)  I don't actually live in the City of Detroit even though I'm Detroit Runner.
9)  I could race once a month every month of the year if there were races I liked locally.
10)  I've been in the same career since college.
11)  My biggest pet peeve is people who throw cigarettes out their car window.

3)  3 dinner guest - who would they be?  Dalia Lama, President George Washington,  My Grandpa on my Mom's side(died before I was born)
4)  Favorite Indulgence?  Snickers!
5)  Favorite Cocktail?  No favorites, rarely drink; Blue Moon beer is good.
6)  Favorite Book from Childhood?  A light in the attic, Shel Silverstein
7)  Have you traveled abroad?  Where?  Never unless you count Mexico or Canada
8)  Beyond running, what's your favorite hobby?  Sorry, I have a one track mind.
9)  What 3 things do you have to have in the morning?  Foam rolling, cereal, coffee
10) What 3 things do you have to have when you head to bed?  An alarm clock, pillow, good night sleep

5)  What is your favorite song right now?  Don't have one really
6)  What is your favorite training/racing gadget?  Garmin
7)  Do you prefer to train with a team, or alone?  Why?  Mostly alone so I'm at my own pace.
8)  What is in your fridge right now?  Milk, fruit, condiments, yogurt
9)  Favorite TV show?  Don't have one right now.
10)  Favorite Book?  A race like no other(the reason I want to run NYC)
11)  Do you have any pets?  No

My questions:

1)  What's the longest you have run at one time?
2)  How long have you been running?
3)  What made you start running?
4)  What is your next time goal for your next race?
5)  Treadmill or outside?  Why?
6)  What's one thing you thing runners need but is not out there?
7)  Who developed your blog?
8)  Have you ever done back to back races within 24 hours
9)  Do you run with your spouse/significant other?
10)  Have you ever organized a race?
11)  What's the one race you want to do but just cannot afford to do it?

See, I have a one track mind.

Who am I tagging?  Ok, I'm breaking the rules.

Who ever reads this.  I'm pretty sure most have seen/done this.  You haven't?  Go for it.  I'm tired!

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
