Plus, because there are things like magazine deadlines and live chats I'm hosting and stories to write and programs to apply for and all that stuff, I don't have time to write a well-thought-out blog post that will inspire or annoy you. So for those of you that don't know me that well (or even those of you who do that just need a reminder), I found this survey on another blog I read (she's a Michigander!) and I thought I'd fill it out. If you end up filling it out on your blog, send me the link so I can read it! And if you don't have a blog but you want to fill it out, you can post it in the comments.
A is for age: 25. At least for another 25 days or something. I'm not counting. I hope 26 is as awesome as 25.
B is for breakfast today: I had Chobani (the best!) and Cheeri-os - the new peanut butter ones. I like this breakfast.
C is for currently craving: Is this supposed to be a food item? Because really I just want a nap.
D is for dinner tonight: I am not one of those people who can decide these things in advance. It depends on what I feel like eating once 6:30 rolls around. Maybe I should get better at planning.
E is for favorite type of exercise: Swimming. I don't get a chance to do it that often (I can't wake up at 5 to make it to a master's practice and I'm limited in my other available pool time) but it's really what I'm best at. I'm ready for summer so I can return to swimming at the outdoor pool at the Olympic Training Center at lunch.
F is for an irrational fear: The dark. 25 years old and still a bit afraid of the dark. Maybe that's not so irrational.
G is for gross food: Celery. I might be alone in this but it's really the one thing I will refuse to even try.
H is for hometown: St. Johns. Best known for its mint fields and the annual Mint Festival every August.
I is for something important: When I look back, going to Central Michigan and joining a sorority were two of the best decisions I have made.
J is for current favorite jam: I feel like there are two ways to answer this, so I will do it both ways: my favorite jam is my mom's strawberry jam, and my other favorite "jam" is "We Are Young" by fun.
K is for kids: I am so not ready for them yet. Give me 5 or more years.
L is for current location: Colorado Springs. More specifically, my cube at work.
M is for the most recent way you spent money: This past weekend I visited my good friend Jamie in Oklahoma City and we had good food and visited the outlet mall there. She is moving here in about two weeks (yay!) and she summed it up perfectly: "Great day blowing money and eating bad. Looking forward to more of this but with less shopping and more salad."
N is for something you need: I'm not sure I really need anything, but I think the thing I would like most right now is to go home for a few days. Home as in Michigan, not my apartment 4 miles away.
O is for occupation: Content Coordinator for USA Triathlon.
P is for pet peeve: Excessive use of LOL, people who don't work hard and then blame everyone else for their troubles, rude runners
Q is for a quote: "Every moment one lives is different from the other. the good, the bad, hardship, the joy, the tragedy, love, and happiness are all interwoven into one single, indescribable whole that is called life. You cannot separate the good from the bad. and perhaps there is no need to do so, either." - Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
|Yes, my bib number was 317 for the St. Pats 5k last year.|
R is for random fact about you: I only started running about a year ago. I never ran regularly before. You probably know this if you have been following along, but my educational fact for this week is that my first 5k last year was the St. Patrick's Day 5k, and this year I'm planning to run it again. It is exciting to know that I should at least be able to run faster than last year!
S is for favorite healthy snack: This probably changes a lot but right now? Chobani. The pineapple kind.
T is for favorite treat: Is it fitting that I say pie?
U is for something that makes you unique: If you google my name, I am the only one of me in all of the world. My name is super unique. This happens when you have a Polish last name.
V is for favorite vegetable: Zucchini. You can do ANYTHING with Zucchini!
W is for today’s workout: Running. I know you're shocked. My 10-mile training plan started this week.
X is for X-rays you’ve had: Besides at the dentist (which does not count): 1. I got kicked by a girl in an intramural soccer game in college and had the worst bruise of my life. They wanted to make sure nothing was broken. It wasn't. But I still have a spot there to this day, and this happened in 2006!
Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Having lunch at Paris Crepes downtown with a friend, and taking a walk after work, just because I could!
Z is for your time zone: Mountain, which is not bad most of the time until the Olympic Games happen and we're on a TV delay.
Hope you're all having a great week!
