Things I Love Thursday - Maple Bars & PJs

Before I get to (some of) your questions, I wanted to let you know I participated Paula's (aka "P" @ Adventures of an Average Athlete) Great Big Bloggy Post Exchange. My post appeared today on Laura's Boise-full Life. It has been fun to find some great new blogs and get to know some new blogging runners. So once you are done finding out some fascinating stuff about me here, head on over to Laura's blog to "Be Inspired" cuz I'm not sure the answers to your questions will qualify as inspiration.

What do love most about running and what do you hate most about it? It's hard to pick one thing I love, but it is probably the challenge. I still have times, like when I looked in the mirror at myself at 3:30 am before my last race, when I wonder Who am I? and can then answer it with I am a runner. I love that I am doing something I never thought I could or would do. As far as hating goes, I don't really hate anything about it. If there is one thing I could change, it would be my post-run stomach issues. But at least they always wait until I'm finished running!

What is you favorite pre workout fuel? I haven't mastered that yet. Might be part of the stomach problems. Before my races lately, I've gotten takeout from a pasta place. I get bow tie pasta with half meat sauce/half Alfredo. Before a regular run, it's usually just whatever we have for dinner because I run after my girls go to bed.

What are your favorite pajamas? These:

Do you think maple bars or bear claws are better? Maple bars. Especially maple bars from Krispie Kreme.

If you couldn't run, what sport would you do instead? I don't do sports. I am afraid of flying balls and took Spanish dance in high school to avoid PE class. Although I really enjoyed Powder Puff football my senior year of high school, come to think of it. I don't think I would be playing football though. I have to say it would probably be cycling. I started running because it was something I could do with my girls and I can say the same thing about cycling. But I can't imagine loving my stationary bike like I love Millie.

I know your kids are young--are you finished or will you have more? In spite of the fact that The Princess begs for a baby brother, I am finished. I'm sure it would be a girl if we had another one anyway, so I'm just saving her the disappointment.

This is my standard question...Brad Pitt or George Clooney? Oooo, that's a tough one. Once upon a time, I would have said Brad Pitt without a moment of hesitation. But I'm starting to lean more toward George these days. Does that mean I'm getting older or just smarter?

That's it for now. Gotta get my girls to bed. More answers to come...


  1. I loved your post on Laura's blog today, really excellent stuff!
    Your dogs are so cute (okay, so are you and your little one, and DANG you have a lot of Christmas goin' on in that picture, but the dogs totally caught my eye). Are they puggles?

  2. bahaha. i would pick george too. thats fine right? LOVED seeing you and your sweet girls tonight! so fun! cant wait till we tackle st. george and vegas together :)

  3. I just noticed you are running the South Valley Half. I signed up for that one today. Cool!

  4. Thanks so much for being so friendly today when I put myself right into the middle of the cool blogger circle. :) Your girls are just beautiful. Awesome job on the 1/2! I was really hoping to do the Provo River 1/2 next Saturday, but have had one set-back after another. I'll just live vicariously through all you cute girls. :)

  5. "I'm afraid of flying balls" I knew I liked you.

  6. i cannot do anything other than run, i too am afraid of flying balls ;) seriously though, i tried volleyball once in highschool. that didn't end well. at all.

  7. I feel the same way about flying balls, haha.

    If I couldn't run, I don't know what I'd do. Probably go back to horseback riding and start bleeding money again.

  8. Late congrats for your half and the great PR!!!
    Interesting answers.
    If I couldn't run, I'd walk, if I couldn't walk I'd do anything!!!! After my injures I walked 5 km (a little more of 3 miles) with the crutches.

  9. Love this and I love maple bars too! Yum! Your girls are too cute and you need to let me babysit sometime so you and your hubby can go out.

    Seriously I would love too!
