I was tagged by running-engineering-cats! Sorry it has taken me so long to do this! :-)

1. Who did you first follow on Tumblr?

I can’t remember! I wasn’t sure I was going to blog for very long, and I definitely wasn’t into running or exercise at all really, so it was probably a fashion blog!

2. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Some cheese-covered food. Pizza, macaroni and cheese, grilled cheese… girl loves her cheese.

3. What is your ideal day like?

Waking up early with the sunrise and a temperature of about 55 and no humidity, going on an effortless run that makes me remember why I love running, coming home and devouring a delicious breakfast and then taking an epic nap. After my marathon nap, spending time with my hubby and my dog and eating pizza. Sounds perfect to me!

4. Do you have any pets?

Yes, I have a four-year-old basset hound named Maizy. She drives me insane and is the love of my life. 

5. What were you like in high school?

In gym class, people received awards for doing well at certain sports, or being a good team leader, etc. My award was “most talkative.” That pretty much sums up my high school life right there. 

6. Favorite color?

Pink!

7. What is something you’re looking forward to?

I’m looking forward to completing my first marathon on October 5. Gah!

8. What’s one song that will always make you dance?

I’m actually a terrible dancer, so I don’t know. But I love music and I’ll jump around to any song!

9. Ever broken any bones?

Never!

10. Who is a person in your life that you admire?

My daddy <3 

11. What outfit are you wearing when you feel super confident? 

A work dress and heels. Power outfit!

Now my questions…

1. What did you want to be when you grew up?

2. What’s your favorite state?

3. What song will you always remember the lyrics to?

4. What’s your favorite dish to cook or bake?

5. What’s your favorite food to order at a restaurant? 

6. Apple, Android or something else?

7. Are you a good photographer?

8. What’s your proudest moment?

9. Who is someone you can always count on?

10. Gatorade- yes or no?

11. Favorite season?  

Run for 20 minutes and you’ll feel better. Run another 20 and you might tire. Add on 3 hours and you’ll hurt, but keep going and you’ll see—and hear and smell and taste—the world with a vividness that will make your former life pale.

Yes.

I haven’t run since Wednesday. I was bangin out miles and workouts 6 days a week and now… 3 rest days? I’m trying to listen to my body because I legitimately feel tired and run down. I’m just hoping this is actually my body saying it needs rest and isn’t laziness.

Ugh.

Funny- the Mac and cheese! Served in a 12&#8221; skillet about 4&#8221; deep&#8230; Ohhh myyy.

Funny- you should definitely check it out! On Sundays, you can go inside and tour it. Other days it&#8217;s closed for the bed and breakfast customers. 

If you&#8217;re heading up 87, Saratoga Springs is another gorgeous place to see right off the highway&#8230; Druther&#8217;s is great for lunch or dinner. They have life changing Mac and cheese. That&#8217;s how I carbed up for my half :-)

If I could ask for the perfect running weather, it would be tonight&#8217;s. 

5 miles done and dusted.

Plus, I got to wear these sahweet pants. Wednesday, you&#8217;re ok.

who the fuck is snapchatting in the serenghetti

I laughed way too hard for way too long about this.

Today, on our way home, we stopped by Saugerties, NY. They have a lighthouse, which we hiked about a half mile to see. It’s also used as a bed and breakfast- how cool! Gorgeous place. The last picture is of a really neat church I saw on our way out.

Solid Monday!

Having a great mini getaway!

Plus, I totally PRed my 4th half marathon today!

Smiles all around.

There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can circumvent or hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul.
