Running Pop Quiz!

1. FUEL: Shot Bloks, GU, Energy Chews, Candy or Other?
                                                               Chocolate Outrage GU

2. Race Length: 5k, 10k, 1/2 Marathon, Marathon, Ultra or Other?

  So far my fave has been my 1/2 Marathon! I think it's the perfect distance!

3. Workout Bottoms: Skirts, Running Shorts, Capris, Pants or Other?

  Skirts! I only have one I regularly run in, I need more! I also have teal and red sparkle skirts, which I LOVE!

4. Sports Drink: Gatorade, Powerade, Cytomax, you stick to water when you run or Other?

  On my long runs, it's definitely Gatorade, but on shorter runs, I just drink water.

5. Running Temperatures: HEAT or COLD?

  Is NEITHER an option? I detest both! But, if I have to choose, I would say cold.
6. Running Shoe Brands: Suacony, Mizuno, Nike, Brookes, Asics or Other?

                        Brooks Pure Flow! I LOVE these babies! They are the secret to my success! :)

7. Pre-race meal: Oatmeal, Bagel, Banana, Eggs, Cereal or Other?

                                    Always a banana! Why?
                                I don't know, it's just what I do.

                                       Can't break tradition!

8. Rest Days: 1x per week, 2x per week, never ever ever or Other?

  I'm following a marathon training plan, so I rest 3 days a week, and run 4. I also do strength training 4-5 days a week. When I rest, I like to make silly duck faces with my hunny!

9. Music: Have to have it or go without it? 

  Always, always run with music! I don't know what I would do without it! Maybe I should try it sometime...

10. #1 reason for running: stress-relief, endorphins, you love to race, so you can eat all the cupcakes you want, weight-loss, love running for social reasons or Other?

  All of the above! My #1 is to lose weight and be healthy. But, it's just something I LOVE and I'm passionate about! I love pushing my body harder and doing more than I ever thought was possible! And of course I run so I can eat icecream!! ;)
My very first 5k race! Little did I know this was the beginning of an addiction!
